disqualifiers

  1. Littering will get you DQd. We are not allowed to offer gels at aid stations because of the preponderance of package tops found on the trails after races.

  2. Runners do not have precedence over other trail users. Be respectful of everybody as you stoke along the single-track. Or, as the Park Service puts it:

    Any pushing, shoving, touching, etc. by any race participant of other park visitors can be considered an assault (by law) and can be enforced as such by park staff.

    Any race participant involved in any such incident will be cited and prosecuted for assault and will be disqualified from the event. Additionally, all race participants agree to indemnify all event organizers/volunteers against any claims arising from any such incident.

  3. Runners must use the bathrooms/outhouses at all of the aid stations when nature calls. Runners violating the “no poop in the woods” policy are subject to disqualification. There will be rangers on the course.

  4. Sale or transfer of a bib number is grounds for permanent disqualification.
