How to Hydrate for a 50k Trail Run?

Trying to decide how I want to hydrate for the McDonald Forest 50k Trail Run coming up in May. I've never had to carry my own water in a race before, but I think I'll need it in this one.

I don't think I want to carry water bottles. I hate the feeling of carrying something. I like to have my hands free. And I think it would tire me out to boot.

So that leaves a Camelback type or a "bottle-belt" around the waist. I'm leaning toward the Fuel Belt type around the waist, but if you're an experienced trailer, please let me know what you think!
