Description

The Vermont 100 Endurance Race is one of the original 100 mile runs in the USA and a part of the Grand Slam Series of Ultrarunning. Each year, 300 runners attempt to finish this hilly race over beautiful Vermont back roads and trails under the 30 hour cutoff point, and a well-trained few finish in under 24 hours. The race proceeds support Vermont Adaptive.

Vermont 100 Handler Information-VERY IMPORTANT Please Share!!


PLEASE SHARE WITH 
YOUR CREWS, FAMILIES AND FRIENDS!!

General Handler Guidelines for 100 Mile and 100 K
There are 9 locations at which you will be able to meet your 100 Mile runners along the course.
The last 7 are where support crews can meet their 100K runners.




MEETING OR HELPING RUNNERS AT ANY OTHER LOCATION IS NOT ALLOWED.

Each runner is allowed ONE Crew Vehicle. The Handler Vehicle Identification Tag, which must be used at all times, may be picked up at Race Registration Tent Friday July 18 and Saturday July 19.. Cars on the course must be kept to a minimum so you need to follow the handler directions between authorized stations.

Don't Use GPS!
Please don't try to shortcut using your GPS; there are very bad, impassable roads that your device won't know about. At a few particularly tricky locations there will be supplementary signage to get you to the aid station.

Vehicle Parking
Please do not park on lawns or in driveways.

The future of the race is dependent upon the people whose properties we run through 
so BE CONSIDERATE, BE FRIENDLY AND HAVE FUN.

Handlers are not allowed to park anywhere other than locations posted and allowed by race management

Driving Speed
FOLLOW ALL POSTED SPEED LIMITS. In some locations it is 25 or 30 mph. The local police know 'visitors' are in town and you are easy money for the local community coffers.

Be aware that there are also horses running the course, so drive slowly in their presence. If the roads are dusty, slower speed means less dust that runners, horses and riders have to breathe.

Your Trash
NO LITTERING!! Historically it's the handlers who are the biggest offenders. Take it, don't leave it!

Dogs
Dogs are not allowed at Silver Hill Meadow or at any of the Handler Access Aid Stations. (Service animals are ok but need to be marked as such.)

Dropping Out
If your runner drops from the race, THE RUNNER OR CREW MUST NOTIFY RACE PERSONNEL AT ONCE. In the past, many man-hours have been spent searching for 'lost' runners who were not lost.

Suggestions:
In order to follow these directions more easily, I suggest you keep resetting your trip odometer for each segment. I also suggest, right now, crossing out directions that do not apply to you (depending on which race you are supporting.)

I also strongly suggest that handlers carry a good flashlight in order to help spot road signs along the route, and a headlamp for reading these directions in the dark and for walking to and from aid stations in the dark.

VERY IMPORTANT!!
Changed as of 2014
Directions to handler aid stations will not be posted in advance of the event to prevent runners and crews from pre-visiting the event area. This is to decrease the impact that our event has on traffic in the area.

Directions to handler aid stations 
will ONLY be available at 
the Crew Car Registration 
on Friday, July 18th 
and Saturday, July 19th.
