Want to cheer on the runners, but didn’t get asked to crew one? We’ll you’re in luck. Here are the best VT100 spectator spots.
But First – The Rules
- Spectators Only! We mean it, these suggestions are only for spectators only – NOT crews or pacers, or aid of any kind.
- Seriously! If any registered crew vehicles are found using these spaces, Race Officials will assume that you are offering illegal aid to your runner and we will disqualify them.
