General Race Rules and Information
1. Runner numbers must be worn on the front and outside of whatever clothes you are wearing. If we cannot see your number we cannot score you at the aid stations. It is the responsibility of the individual runner to make sure that your number has been noted and you have been checked in at all manned aid stations.
Cutoff times at Medical Check Points
During the VT 100, runners are allowed to set their own pace but are required to leave the medical check points by the cutoff times - which are as follows:
Medical Check Point Requirements At each required Medical Check Point every runner must be weighed before hydrating. Weight loss of 5% will result in the runner being observed while hydrating in the station and no runner who has lost 7% of pre-race weight will be allowed to continue. Medical staff will also evaluate other aspects of each runner’s condition. All decisions of Medical Staff regarding the fitness of a runner to continue are final and not subject to appeal.
Note: Race management reserves the right to ask a runner to stop if, in their opinion, the runners pace creates a hazard to the runner or others. Do not argue with Race or Medical staff.

Vermont Adaptive Ski & Sport
During this same time, Laura and her running and equine friends and dedicated supporters of the organization established the VT 100 and the VT 50 races to help subsidize the organizational expenses.
In 1989, the Ski Foundation grew to include summer activities such as canoeing and rock climbing in Southern Vermont. By 1991 the adaptive skiing program expanded to Northern Vermont, beginning operations of our winter program at Sugarbush Resort.
By 1996 the organization offered full-time statewide programs and the name Vermont Adaptive Ski and Sports was adopted with the mission to provide year-round recreational opportunities to individuals with disabilities.
In 1998, Vermont Adaptive expanded its programming by collaborating with Lake Champlain Community Sailing Center to bring an extensive Adaptive Water Sports program to the Champlain Valley.
Vermont Adaptive moved its southern programs and operational headquarters to Pico Mountain Resort in 1999, centralizing ad- ministration.
In the spring of 2000, Vermont Adaptive played a large part in the development and creation of the first inclusive camp in Chittenden County. "Partners in Adventure" pairs able bodied and disabled campers ages 11-17 together for adventure and activities.
In 2002 Vermont Adaptive developed, trained and sponsored a disabled alpine ski team to participate in the Diana Golden Race Series held throughout the Northeast. The series is designed to allow disabled athletes to become familiar with the sport of alpine ski racing in a fun and supportive environment.
In 2004, Vermont Adaptive aligned itself with the US Paralympics as an official partner and Paralympic Sport Club. Paralympic Sport Clubs are responsible for promoting awareness for the Paralympic Games and for developing programs and events which expose physically disabled athletes to competitive Paralypic sport. The US Paralympics is the sanctioning body for the US Olympics and hosts Paralympic Games in the 2 weeks following each Olympic Game year at the same Olympic site location.
Vermont Adaptive and United States Association for Blind Athletes partnered in 2007 to offer the first National Winter Festival "learn to ski, learn to race and Nordic event" for visually impaired and blind athletes.
In 2008 Vermont Adaptive expanded to a 3rd Winter Program location, Bolton Valley Resort. Because of it's proximity to Burlington and Chittenden County, our programs at Bolton Valley are very popular and growing quickly.
The VT 100 Endurance Race is one of Vermont Adaptive's largest fund-raisers. The entry fee and participation in the optional pledge program make it possible for people with disabilities to experience the thrill of sports that is often taken for granted by able-bodied athletes.
