1. No littering. By our permit, 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 (my 86-year-old mom often hikes out here; be careful and kind passing anyone on the trail.) 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 (pee is okay). There will be rangers on the course.

  4. Sale or transfer of a bib number = permanent disqualification.

  5. Any form of aid or crewing outside of “crew-yes” aid stations = disqualification.

  6. No course cutting, including switchbacks. All runners must cross the bridge and enter Muir Beach aid station outbound and inbound.

  7. Runners must respect all cutoffs and obey race officials, park officials and CHP officers.
