SOLO RUNNERS

Complete solo rules are included in the VT100 Runner’s Handbook.

MEDICAL

Below is the details of the Vermont 100 medical/first aid process:

  • Runners WILL NOT undergo a quick medical check-in on Friday during registration
  • Runners WILL NOT need to check-in with medical personnel during the race
  • Runners WILL be responsible for their own healthy, safety, and well being throughout the event
  • Vermont 100 will provide first aid-level care only.  There will be first aid kits at every manned aid station, and first aid volunteers at Camp 10 Bear, Bill’s, and Start/Finish.
  • There will be an ambulance with EMTs at the start/finish area for runners who need a higher level of care.  Any treatment or ambulance ride is at the cost of the runner (or their medical insurance) and not the event.
