It is critical to avoid wasted energy and collisions. Anyone disregarding these rules to the detriment of other runners will be disqualified. ALWAYS hug the inside lane if you are running at a reasonable pace relative to other runners. Never try to predict another runner coming from behind or make room for them on the inside because they are going faster than you.
Leave room for other runners to pass in the outside of lane 1, not all the way in lane 2. Runners passing from behind will always move to the outside lane to make a pass. If multiple runners are passing at the same time at different speeds, the inside of lane 2 is reserved for double passes. If you are taking an extended walk-break or have slowed down, please use the outside of lane 2 or inside of lane 3.If you are getting aid or using the restroom and need to get to the outside of lane 2, always check that you will not cut off another runner. Runners who are using short walk-breaks as a strategy for hitting their goals are permitted to do so without moving to the outside of lane 2. The event is meant for runners to have their best performance in hopes of reaching a National or World Record or making a National 24 hour team. If still on pace to do so, and using strategic walk breaks to get there, runners may remain in the inside of lane 1. This rule is meant to impact runners who have slowed to the point of missing their stated goals or records and are taking an extended walk break and thus disrupting the flow of the event.
