The time limit for the Saturday morning start races is 55-ish hours. Sunday morning runners have roughly 36 hours to complete the course. As long as you are upright and moving forward, we won’t tell you to stop. Walkers are welcome!
Drop bags will be allowed along the race course and inside the dining hall. We’ll have most of what you’ll need on hand, but bring things like rain jackets, head lamps, favorite flavors of Gu, change of clothes, etc. You’re welcome to bring a chair to set up with your belongings if you’d like.
Please label all drop bags with your last name and your bib number.
Any drop bags left at the group camp will be discarded.
There will be no medical checks before, during, or after the race. We will have volunteers available who are trained in CPR and basic first aid. Each participant is responsible for knowing his or her own physical limitations.
If, in the opinion of the race director or aid station captains, your physical or mental condition has endangered your safety and/or the safety of others, you will be withdrawn from the race.
Requirement for 50 Mile and 100K Races
You must have completed a marathon or longer distance race between 8/5/2016 and 8/1/2017 to be admitted into the 50 mile or 100K race.
Requirement for 100 Mile Race
You must have completed a 50 mile or longer distance race between 8/5/2016 and 8/1/2017 to be admitted into the 100 mile race. Exceptions will be made for runners who can demonstrate comparable amounts of running (i.e. completion of a Mainly Marathons series at marathon or above distance.)
Crews and Pacers
Crews are welcome to assist you.
Pacers are allowed after you reach the 30 mile mark. Pacers are required to wear a pacer bib and must purchase a pacer wristband, which gives them access to food and drink at the aid stations. Muling is allowed.
Crew members and pacers may NOT use bicycles to accompany or crew runners on the course at any time.
Runners are responsible for checking in with lap counters and finish line timing staff during each lap. Make sure your number is visible and help us by shouting it out when you approach timing staff at each location. If you do not check in, we cannot guarantee that we will have accurate split times or a finish time for you. Runners who do not check in with the timing table when they finish will not receive a finish time.
You may drop down to a shorter distance mid-race and receive a finish time, or you may move up to a longer distance if you’re feeling good, but you MUST inform the main timing table staff at the start/finish. If you move up to a longer distance, you will be required to pay the difference before you will receive your medal.
There will be no awards ceremony. Awards will be given out as runners cross the finish line. We only give out awards for the runners who endure the longest, i.e. the caboose! There are no age group awards.
