Pacers are allowed after the 100k point for 100 mile runners (Start/Finish Line) or at mile 42 for 100k runners.
- You may have as many pacers as you wish, although only one pacer at a time. Pacers may be picked up only at aid stations and approved crew points.
- Pacing entails patience, tolerance and humor. The primary duties of a pacer include route finding, keeping the runner on pace, ensuring that the runner continues to eat and drink and making sure the runner leaves the aid stations with adequate clothing and supplies to reach the next aid station.
- Pacers must enter and leave each aid station WITH their runners. They may assist with the re-filling of water bottles or replenishment of supplies while in the station but may not come into the checkpoint ahead of their runners, or depart after their runners, in order to speed up the re-fueling process.
- Pacers may not carry water, food, flashlights, shoes, clothing or other supplies for anyone other than themselves. “Muling” is expressly forbidden.
- No mechanical or physical assistance may be given by the pacer to the runner at any time
- Please respect the course; littering of any kind is strictly prohibited.
