Best Bet would be to TIME the race start so this section was done IN THE DARK.
Cooler temps and NO broiling sun. Careful you don't run over that TaiPan in the middle of the road!
200km is over 120 miles which at 'race pace' of maybe 16mph is about 8 hours.
Add another 250km = 150+ miles or another 10 hours or so.
Sorry, I think it would be Humane to place a water tank at the 375km mark, or midway between the 200km water source and the 'end' of that segment. And a BF umbrella, too, while your at it.
I rode the Tour De North County here in San Diego for several years. Part of the 50 mile route was up a 7 mile grade. Water was at a fire station well before that and again right at the TOP. One year it was 100f on grade without a Farts worth of Wind. The demand was so extreme that the water station on the TOP of the grade simply ran out and I and many others waited for water to arrive.
My jersey was CRUNCHY with Salt Encrustation by the end of the ride. I rinsed it out using the garden hose PRIOR to laundry.
