All 60K runners need to pass through Fall Creek (mile 20ish) by 2:00 PM for a finish. Any runner at the aid station at this exact moment will be pulled from the race due to the safety and consideration of our dedicated hike-in volunteers.
No littering. Vast amounts of this course are proposed wilderness. Let’s treat it as such.
Runners MUST leave Fall Creek Trailhead with a minimum of 40 oz. of water, 600 safety calories, and a jacket.
Pass on the left and warn the runner in front of you!
Closed Course: this means no deviation, and cutting of switchbacks is strictly prohibited. Runners who make their way to the finish line after passing through Broad Canyon Campground will be given an unofficial finish.
DNFs: once the race has started, quitting means you are done. You will turn in your bib and declare your race finished. Stage Race: If you are on a team, and your partner quits, you surrender your ability to go on. No unofficial runners on the last 18 miles of the course (Fall Ck-Surprise Valley-Baptie Lk-White Mountain Tr)
Indecent Exposure: nudity is strictly prohibited. If you need to go, there are plenty of shrubberies on the course.
No stashing of aid on the course! It will attract animals and the prankster RD.
Cars: headphones and cars are a safety issue. Make sure you can hear vehicles driving on the road.
