Crew Rules-New for 2014 #vt1002014

Runners Please Share this BLOG with 
Your Crews, VERY IMPORTANT!

We know that you're here to help your runner, we're glad that you're here and we support you. Our event is only able to continue as long as everyone involved is kind and courteous to the local residents and the volunteers who operate our aid stations.

This counts doubly for the crews. 
Crews are seen by our neighbors more than the runners and you have more of a chance to make an impact on the locals' impression of our event. 
Your positive attitude when dealing with locals and volunteers is imperative to the continuation of this event.
All participants are allowed to have 
only 1 crew vehicle on course. 

All crew vehicles MUST register with race personnel 
on Friday or Saturday before 
being on course 
or at any aid stations. 
See procedures below.

Unmarked vehicles will be required to leave the course/aid station.

Crews who do not follow the handler direction routes and use "closed to event traffic" roads risk having their vehicle removed from the event.

Crews who do not follow the directions of race officials and aid station personnel risk having your vehicle removed from the event and your runner disqualified.

Littering is taken seriously in Vermont and is grounds to have your vehicle removed from the event. 

Parking in undesignated areas will not be permitted. This is any place that the event doesn't specifically tell you to park. Do not block roads or driveways. Do not park on lawns! If you leave your vehicle in an unapproved area, it will likely be towed at your expense. 

Offering aid to runners from a vehicle anywhere other than an official "handler access" aid station is grounds to have your vehicle removed from the event and your runner disqualified.

Being at an aid station that is not an official "handler access" station is grounds to have your vehicle removed from the event and your runner disqualified.

Crew Car Check-in Procedures
  • All cars that will be crewing a runner in the Vermont 100 Endurance Race (Mile or K distance) must check in with Race Officials on Friday 9am-6pm or Saturday all day before visiting any aid stations.
  • Crew Car Registration will be at Silver Hill. Once your runner has checked in and received their bib number you must drive your car to the Crew Car registration area. Race Officials will: 
  • Mark your car with your runners bib number
  • Give you an official dash plaque for aid station access
  • Give you the directions to the aid stations
  • Take note of your cars make, model and your license plate number
  • You will also need to leave your name and a cell phone number
  • You will not be allowed to park in the aid stations if your car is not marked.
  • You will not be given directions to the aid stations if you do not register your car.
You may NOT travel on any road that has a "local traffic only" or Road Closed" sign.Traveling on these roads can result in your runner being disqualified and the VT 100 not being allowed to return to our venue next year. 

You MUST treat any locals you encounter in the area with respect. Whether it's another car, a pedestrian or a tractor on the road these people live here year round and it is your responsibility to make sure that you are making a good impression on them. Our ability to hold the event again depends on it! 

Do not follow your GPS! The Handler Directions found in your crew handbook at Crew Car Registration are perfect and will get you where you need to go. KNOW WHERE YOU ARE!

You could end up like this:

AGAIN...
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.

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! (SEE ABOVE)
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.)
