Getting to Silver Hill - Every year, we struggle to get a permit for this race, due to some neighbor complaints about our presence. There will be many “closed” roads on the way to Silver Hill and you and your crews must stay off of them. Any road with a sign reading “closed to event traffic” "Local traffic only” “closed to through traffic” or “NO VT 100” is off limits to our event. Directions to get to the site (and avoid the closed roads) is here: https://docs.google.com/document/d/1kW8muIzBADLJdVrNqeDLdSxhkav8GW6CfFoNFPGOvEE/pub. The future of our event depends on everyone staying off closed roads!
Please remember that on any unmarked DIRT road in Vermont, the speed limit is 35. Silver Hill Road is very skinny and has lots of corners. Please drive slowly for everyone safety!
When driving and parking at our Silver Hill site, please remember to always obey the signs, and NEVER STOP IN THE ROAD!
Always enter up and drive down in parking areas. All of our parking is in grassy fields. With any amount of rain, they can become very slick and then very muddy. Every field has an entrance at the TOP and an exit at the BOTTOM.
Stay out of the mud!! The mud is deeper than you think here! If it rains and mud appears in the field, do not drive in it. You will get stuck and make it worse. Go around!
Crews - Crews will not be allowed to park in the aid stations if they don’t have a crew vehicle tag. Driving directions for the crews are online in the runner handbook. If your crew requires alternative directions (i.e. they will be skipping Pretty House and want to go directly to Stage Road), they can get these by talking to a race official - they will need to show the crew vehicle tag to obtain these directions.
CREWS Please visit this page for your complete rules and procedures: http://vermont100endurancerun.blogspot.com/p/handler-rules.html
- Friday at registration, many of our sponsors will be on-site to chat with you. These sponsors are vital to the race, so please take the time to visit their booths and learn about their products. The sponsors that will be on-site are: Salomon, Health Warrior, DrinkMaple, Hoka One One, Dion Snowshoes, and Trail Pixie Studios.
- Bib numbers are posted. Your bib will be your meal ticket to Friday night dinner and the Sunday BBQ.

- If you are a runner who plans to arrive after registration closes (at 3:45pm on Friday), please email me to let me know. We encourage everyone, include 100km runners, to complete packet pickup and medical check-in on Friday and attend the pre-race meeting.
- Pacers will also need to register to receive their pacer bib. They can check in when registration is open on Friday, or anytime on Saturday. If your pacer plans to arrive on Saturday, they will just need to find a Race Official in the main tent. I only ask that they wait until after the 100 mile race starts to find us. http://vermont100endurancerun.blogspot.com/p/pacer-info.html
|Pre-Race Meeting-Be There!!|
Non-crew Spectators - In the past we have encouraged everyone to come out and cheer you on at aid stations. Unfortunately, due to an unhappy neighbor these last few years, we have worked to significantly cut down the traffic involved with our race. This means that you will be limited to 1 crew vehicle on course. Every non-solo runner will be given a ‘crew vehicle tag’ which your crew car will need to display to access the crew stations. Volunteers at these stations have been instructed to turn away any vehicle that does not have a crew vehicle tag!
There are a few spots along the course where a spectator (not crew!) could watch some of the runners pass by and those places are listed here:http://vermont100endurancerun.blogspot.com/p/non-crew-spectating.html
Please make sure that your crews take note that these places are not for them. If official, registered crew vehicles are found waiting in these spectator spots by race officials, we will have to assume that they are trying to give illegal aid and we will have to disqualify YOU, the runner.
If you have non-crewing family or friends who are interested in volunteering at an aid station, this is a great opportunity for them to be able to watch the event, cheer for you and other runners, not be bored while you race and have fun! Volunteers can commit to as few as 4 hours or as many as 16 at a variety of available time slots and locations, including the finish line!
volunteer, please direct your non-crewing friends and family to our on-line sign up sheet: http://vermont100endurancerun.blogspot.com/p/volunteers-page.html
Please email if you have questions - and we look forward to seeing you all in a few days!
