ENTRY PROCESS

Entry process for the 2023 event is as follows:

Early Registration

Participants can qualify for early registration through any of six criteria:

  1. 4+ Vermont 100 mile finishes in the past 8 years (100 mile race only) OR 4+ Vermont 100 km finishes in the past 8 years (100k race only)
  2. Overall podium in the past 2 Vermont 100s (for the distance they podiumed only, to be used once for an early registration)
  3. Aid station captains or their designee (each club that adopts an aid station can designate one runner for early entry)
  4. Athletes with Disabilities
  5. “Local Supporters” (race committee members, VT100 course land owners, etc.)
  6. Runners who have completed both the Vermont 100 mile run and Vermont 100 mile ride.

Runners who qualify for early registration will receive an email with their early registration code by December 10th and must enter during the early registration period.  If you believe you qualify and don’t receive a lottery bypass code, follow up with the RD between December 15th and 20th, 2022.

*For 2023 only, early registration will also include runners who rolled their entry over from 2020.  Please note that runners must meet the 2023 qualifying standards, including the window to run a qualifier.

General Registration

General registration will be via lottery, as follows:

  • Runners will be allowed to enter lottery either individually or with a buddy (i.e. either you both get in or you don’t).
  • All names entered will be pulled, either for the race or to place them on the waitlist in the order pulled.
  • New this year – we are not capping registration for the different distances, we are instead capping the event total at 450 runners.  This means there will be one lottery and one waitlist for all runners.  *This will allow runners to change their entered distance through June 1, 2023.
