Rules and Recommendations:
- It is highly recommended for racers to leave each aid station with a container carrying at least 16oz’s of fluid.
- Race numbers must be worn on the front of the body and visible at all times. It may not be worn on back, hat or head.
- The clock does not stop for any reason until the race course officially closes 32 hours after the designated official start time.
- Racers, crew, and staff must not litter, mar, or pollute the landscape or environment. In fact, if you see litter please pick it up!
- It is important to know that some of the course is on private land and we only have permission to be on this land on race day. The racer must stay on the designated route or risk disqualification.
- 100 mile racers and crew members/pacers are encouraged to wear reflective material facing in all four directions, as well as blinking LED lights facing front and rear, at night. Remember, a portion of the 100 mile course is on roads.
- Racers are responsible for both their own and their crew’s actions; crews are responsible for both their own and their racer’s actions.
- A crew member is defined as any individual who provides material support to a runner in the event. Crews may meet runners and assist them only at aid stations specifically designated for crew access, or in specific crewing areas defined below. Crews must wait to assist their runner at such an aid station until after the official check-in.
- Racers are not allowed to get in or take anything from a moving vehicle.
- Racers must make their presence known at all Aid Stations located along the route.
- If a racer withdraws, he/she or his/her crew must contact Race Headquarters or notify an Aid Station immediately. Name, reason for withdrawal, time of withdrawal, and miles completed must be stated. All racers and crew who drop are strongly encouraged to come to the finish line for both post-race events to greet and celebrate with their fellow racers and crew. There is no shame in DNF-ing!
- All Emergency Evacuation costs for participants or crews will be borne by that person or their heirs. The race organizers are in no way liable or responsible for emergency evacuation.
- The Race Director has the authority to overrule any rule or invent a new rule based on extenuating circumstances. The Race Director has ultimate authority in regards to all rules, their interpretation, and their enforcement. There is no “appeals committee” or “appeals process.”
- Follow ALL rules of the road while driving! Watch out for other runners and cars!!!
We have these rules for your safety, the safety of the other runners and their crews, AND our volunteers! These rules are the same for all racers. Please understand that failure to abide by any of these rules is grounds for disqualification.
