Athletes competing in the RRCA National 100-Mile Ultra Championship will be allowed to use safety runners. Safety runners 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 safety runners are allowed beginning at the 50-mile aid station (near the start/finish line) and at the second Diamond Peak aid station visit (76.3-miles). Both aid stations are accessible by car. Runners may only have one safety runner at a time. It is permissible to change safety runners at the Tunnel Creek and Hobart aid stations BUT IT IS NOT ADVISED. There is NO VEHICLE ACCESS to these aid stations for crew, spectators or safety runners. Aid station personnel will make no arrangements to transport in or out of these aid stations.
Pacing is NOT allowed. Safety runners are required to stay behind their competitor. 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.
Safety runners must check in with our registration staff prior to the event and will be issued a safety runner 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.
50-Mile safety runners will abide by the same rules as the 100-Mile safety runners. Safety runners must check in with our registration staff prior to the event and will be required to sign a waiver, complete a Medical Form 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, account for their safety in the same manner as our registered runners. Additionally, if they wish to participate in the post-race "burrito bar" they will need to purchase separate meal tickets.
PRE AND POST-EVENT REFRESHMENTS
We will again host you, "post-event", at our "Build Your Own Burrito Bar". This is included in the entry fee for all registered participants. There will be a nominal $5 per person fee for non-participant family and friends who wish to partake in the feast. Tickets will be available on race day
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. EXCEPTION: 100-mile runners will receive one (1) parking pass which can be used by crew/family to park within the Spooner Lake State Park from 6:00 p.m. on Saturday evening until 10:00 a.m. on Sunday morning.
