2020 Vermont 100 Race Registration Process
The 2020 edition of the VT100 Endurance Race is fast on it’s way. Here’s an update on registration for the upcoming event.
Early Registration/Lottery Bypass returns this year:
As has become tradition at the VT100, we’ll once again offer early registration from December 15, 2019 to December 24, 2019 to a limited number of runners who fall within the following categories:
- Long timers – 4+ Vermont 100 mile finishes in the past 8 years for 100 mile only, OR 4+ Vermont 100 km finishes in the past 8 years for 100 km only.
- Overall podium (top 3 male/female) for the last 2 Vermont 100s, for the distance of podium
- Athletes qualifying for (and competing in) the Athletes with Disabilities Divisions
- Aid station captains or their designee (i.e. each aid station can designate 1 runner for early entry), may choose either distance
- “Local Supporters” (race committee members, landowners who let us use their land for the race, etc.), may choose either distance
We will send out emails by December 10, 2019 for everyone who qualifies. If you are an AWD, or believe you qualify as a local supporter, email the RD prior to December 1st to inquire about being added to the list. Otherwise, please wait until after the December 10th emails go out and only reach out if you believe you qualify but don’t receive the bypass info.
General Registration continues as Lottery System:
Last year was the first year that the Vermont 100 held a lottery for registration. Obviously, some love this change and some hate it – but it achieved the goals of the race committee to allow fair entry process for all. Further info is below.
2020 Lottery Details:
The lottery and resulting registration will be hosted through RunReg. Those participating in the lottery will be randomly selected, in accordance with the registration limits for the two distances. There is no fee to enter the lottery.
Runners will be allowed to either register individually or in groups of two. For the groups of two, either both runners will get in or not, but they’ll be paired together throughout the process. If not selected for the race and placed on the waitlist, we’ll pull the names together and order the two names based on who of the two registered first.
2020 Lottery / Registration Process:
The lottery registration / application period for the 2020 event will open on Thursday, January 2, 2020 at 8:00 AM EST and will close on Friday, January 10, 2020 at 8:00 PM EST.
The lottery drawing will be held on January 11 or 12, 2020, with accepted registrations processed and the start list published in real time (location and time of public lottery TBD). Accepted applicants selected during the lottery will have their credit card automatically charged and will be officially entered into the event as a registered runner at that time.
We will continue to pull every applicant during the lottery process, with applicants beyond the race limits being added to the waitlist in the order they were drawn. As with past years, runners will be taken off the waitlist as spots are available in the coming months, and their credit card will be automatically charged. If you are on the waitlist and are no longer interested in running the race, email the RD to be removed from the waitlist.
2020 Team Run 2 Empower:
As always, Vermont 100 also welcomes runners who commit to fundraising for Vermont Adaptive, and have set aside several spots in the event for these runners. Registration for the Team is currently open, email the RD if you are interested in learning more and potentially joining the Team.
