Tahoe Rim Trail Endurance Runs
- RRCA National, Regional and State Championships are open to all runners of any nationality. There are no requirements of membership in any member organization.
- The top three men and women overall, masters and senior finishers will receive RRCA National Championship Awards.
- The overall male and female runner will be awarded the RRCA National 100-Mile Championship title.
- RRCA age groups are as follows:

- Athletes competing in the RRCA National 100-Mile 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 start/finish line aid station (50-miles) and at the second Diamond Peak aid station visit (76.3-miles). Both aid stations are accessible by car.
- 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.
