DIRECTIONS FOR 100 Mile HANDLERS
VT 100 MILE ENDURANCE RACE
July 19-20, 2014
(printable version here)
There are 9 locations
at which you will be able to meet your 100 Mile runners along the course. The last 7 are where support crews can meet their 100K runners.
MEETING OR HELPING RUNNERS AT ANY OTHER LOCATION IS NOT ALLOWED.
In your runners packet there will be a Handler Vehicle Identification Tag which must be used at all
Cars on the course must be kept to a minimum so you need to follow the handler directions between authorized stations. Please don't try to shortcut using your GPS; there are very bad, impassable roads that your device won't know about. At a few particularly tricky locations there will be supplementary signage to get you to the aid station. Please do not park on lawns or in driveways. The future of the race is dependent upon the people whose properties we run through so BE CONSIDERATE, BE FRIENDLY AND HAVE FUN.
Handlers are not allowed to park anywhere other than locations posted and allowed by race management
FOLLOW ALL POSTED SPEED LIMITS.
In some locations it is 25 or 30 mph. The local police know 'visitors' are in town and you are easy money for the local community coffers.
Be aware that there are also horses running the course, so drive slowly in their presence.
If the roads are dusty, slower speed means less dust that runners, horses and riders have to breathe.
Historically it's the handlers who are the biggest offenders. Take it, don't leave it!
Dogs are not allowed at Silver Hill Meadow or at any of the Handler Access Aid Stations.
If your runner drops from the race, THE RUNNER OR CREW MUST NOTIFY RACE PERSONNEL AT ONCE.
In the past, many man-hours have been spent searching for 'lost' runners who were not lost.
In order to follow these directions more easily, I suggest you keep resetting your trip odometer for each segment. I also suggest, right now, crossing out directions that do not apply to you (depending on which race you are supporting.)
I also strongly suggest that handlers carry a good flashlight in order to help spot road signs along the
route, and a headlamp for reading these directions in the dark and for walking to and from aid stations
in the dark.
Changed as of 2014
handler aid stations will not be posted in advance of the event to prevent runners and crews from
pre-visiting the event area. This is to decrease the impact that our event has on traffic in the area.
Directions to handler aid stations will be available at the Crew Car Registration on Friday,
July 18th and Saturday, July 19th.
