One runner on the course at a time
Each runner must mark their time on the board when returning back from the 5 miles loop. This is the only way we an keep track of your time. This is based on the honor system.
Each team member must complete at least one lap every 12 hours - If a team member is injured then this is not required
Must be self-supporting. Runners are responsible for your own warmth, sleeping tent, and winter survival. We will provide light snacks, water and gatorade.
At the conclusion of the race, runners are given a 15 min grace period to finish their final lap, after which a mile will be deducted for every 15 min they are late (for example, at 10:15 one mile is deducted, at 10:30 two miles, and so forth).
Littering on the course will subject you to disqualification
Due to the extreme weather at this time of year we reserve the right to cancel the event at any time. Final results will be calculated based on each runner’s placement at the call time as determined by that runner’s last completed lap. This rule is intended to be a last resort
If you are struggling at any point in the run, race officials will have the right to evaluate you, and it will be their call if you will be allowed to continue. These decisions will be made with your safety and desire to finish in mind
Runners may have crew support every lap. When helping, crew must stay at designated area on Slug Fest Row. Helping outside of the runners designated area on Slug Fest Row is not allowed
When checking in you will be asked to show your required materials described below. If you do not have these items you are subject to disqualification
