Drop Bags

Drop bags are allowed for the 50K/100K at the Timber Ridge Aid Station ONLY (mile 15.5 of each 25K Loop). There will be a designated tent where drop bags are allowed.

  • You are limited to 1 drop bag/small cooler
  • Drop bags must be claimed by the end of the event on Saturday. Any drop bags remaining following the event may be claimed by staff (so leave us some good snacks!) or disposed of.
  • DO NOT leave valuables in your drop bags. We aren't responsible if something is stolen from them.

Crew

Crewing is providing on-course support for a runner during a race at designated, crew-allowed aid stations. As a crew member, you become a first-aid provider, counselor, cook, motivational speaker, and pedicurist for a person who is exhausted, dirty, smelly, dehydrated, hungry, sleepy, blistered, and sunburned. Sounds fun, right?

Crewing is allowed for the 50K/100K at the Timber Ridge Aid Station ONLY (mile 15.5 of each 25K Loop).
  • There will be a designated section where crew members can setup shop. Crewing is not allowed outside of this zone and will results in a DNF for the runner if caught doing so.
  • Pacers are allowed but ONLY for the 4th loop of the 100K (miles 46.5-62) and must follow all rules of the race.
  • Pacers are not allowed to carry support for participants and must only PACE. All support must be in the Crew Zone at the Timber Ridge Aid Station.

Restrooms

Pooping in the woods or your pants is discouraged, so try to make it to one of the restroom locations below.

  • Vault toilets are available at the Bartlett Road and Supply Road Aid Stations
  • The Timber Ridge start/finish area and aid station will have portable restrooms

Restrooms

First Aid

  • Basic first aid kits will be available at the Bartlett Road and Supply Road Aid Stations.

Bail Out Locations

If at any point you are unable to continue on the 25K Loop (we won't judge, we promise), there are three bail out points where you can receive a ride back to the start/finish area:

  • Bartlett Road Trail Head Aid Station
  • Supply Road Trail Head Aid Station
  • Timber Ridge Aid Station (Loop/Start/Finish Area)
Aid station 2 is not staffed, but you can bail out at this point and follow the markings towards Timber Ridge (1.2 miles).
