General Race Rules and Information
- 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.
- ABSOLUTELY NO LITTERING WILL BE TOLERATED!
- Any runner dropping out must immediately notify appropriate race personnel at an aid station or the finish line.
- Cutoff times at Medical Stations are non-negotiable.
- All runners will abide by the directions of Medical personnel.
- All pacers will be required to check-in and obtain a pacer bib prior to being allowed on course.
- Runners who get lost during the race must return, without assistance from others, to the spot where they left the trail to continue.
- Any runner accepting a ride for any reason is deemed out of the race.
- No aid is allowed from a vehicle. Crews must be outside the vehicle and at an acceptable location when assisting a runner. This includes pacing a runner from a vehicle.
- No aid or assistance is allowed other than at designated handler access stations. Race officials have the right to disqualify any runner who does not abide by this rule.Handlers take note!
- No vehicle shall follow a runner at night, assisting with headlights.
- No "muling" (pacers carrying runners gear.)
- Pets are not allowed at aid stations or Silver Hill Meadow, except service animals, which should be marked as such.
- The use of headphones or personal speakers (ipods, mp3 players, walkmans, radios, etc) is prohibited. Their use presents a major safety hazard and can result in disqualification.
- We discourage the use of "trekking poles". Their use will result in disqualification only if race officials deem such use to be hazardous.
Violating any rule will be grounds for disqualification. Race management reserves the right to bar any runner from competing in this or any future Vermont 100 Mile Endurance Race.

PARKING AT SILVER HILL MEADOW AND HANDLER ACCESS STATIONS
All parking signs must be followed. No parking is allowed in driveways or in the road at Silver Hill Meadow. All parking at handler access stations must be out of traffic and must not block roads or driveways. Handlers must follow directions of aid station personnel.
No pacer parking is allowed at Camp 10 Bear.
A shuttle will be provided from Silver Hill Meadow.
The trail is marked with yellow plastic plates with black arrows. There are smaller plates marked with a 'C' to indicate the course between the larger arrow plates. Lime is used on the road to mark certain intersections. Glow sticks are used to mark the trail at night. Unfortunately, vandalism does occur - we have crews checking during the night but be cautious.
