100 MILE EVENT DETAILS
MANDATORY PRE-RACE MED CHECKS, PACKET PICK-UP, AND DROP BAG COLLECTION
RACE START: 5:00 a.m. Saturday, July 18th
Finish line cutoff for the 100-mile event is 4:00 p.m. on Sunday afternoon (35 hours). For the

Pacers are allowed solely as a safety consideration for fatigued runners in the remote and
rugged back country areas of the Tahoe Rim Trail Endurance Runs. Absolutely no physical or
mechanical aid may be given by the safety runner to assist the runner over difficult sections of
the trail (except in medical emergencies), and no food, fluids or supplies of any kind may be
carried for the runner. 100-Mile pacers are allowed beginning at the 50-mile aid station (near the start/finish line) and at the second Diamond Peak aid station visit (80-miles). Both aid stations are accessible by car. Runners may only have one safety runner at a time. Tunnel Creek does not have vehicle access. Aid station personnel will make no arrangements to transport safety runners or crew.
No competitor who is not actually taking part in the competition shall accompany any competitor during the competition nor shall any competitor be permitted to receive aid or refreshment from anyone during the progress of the competition except within 100 meters on either side of the fully stocked aid stations.
Pacers must check in at the 50 Mile aid station or at Diamond Peak aid station and will be issued a pacer bib number. This will help us make sure they are readily identifiable by our aid station staffs, make sure we have enough food and beverage on the course for everyone and account for their safety in the same manner as our registered runners. All safety runners are required to sign an event waiver. Pacers should carry their own gels and food times as possible to insure there is plenty of food for the paid racers.
PRE AND POST-EVENT REFRESHMENTS
We will again host you with fabulous food trucks, massage tables, cool music, beer, sodas. This
is included in the entry fee for all registered participants, however family, crew members and pacers will need to purchase their own food at the food trucks. They are reasonably priced but be sure to have money on hand for this.
There will be First Aid / CPR qualified individuals and radio and /or cell phone communications
at each aid station. There will be medical staff at key aid stations and at the start/finish. Safety
patrol personnel will be deployed within each division between aid stations.
No event parking will be allowed within the Spooner Lake State Park because it is extremely
limited and the park is still open for general visitors. We are providing ample FREE satellite
parking nearby at Spooner Junction approximately 1/2-mile from the park. Arrive at least one
hour early to ensure you have plenty of time to get into the park and situated prior to the race

Shuttle vans will be available before and after the race to transport participants, family and
friends to and from the event site. Participants are encouraged to arrive early to allow for the
extra time needed to shuttle to the event site. We'll provide secure bag storage at the Start/finish area.
