Crews are permitted for runners in the 50K and 50 Mile individual events only.
Crews may meet their runners only at established aid stations (Upper 528, Jennings, Swamp Section) and may only render assistance within 100 yards of those aid stations. Crews may be provided specific areas to stage and support their runner(s).
Crews are responsible for their own food and drinks. Race management, sponsors, and volunteers are not responsible for lost or injured crews. Crews must abide by posted speed limits. You will have more than enough time to get from one aid station to the next ahead of your runner!
Parking availability should not be an issue at the Jennings and Swamp Section aid stations. Due to the configuration of the course, the Upper 528 aid station will see much more runner traffic than the others. Unfortunately, this location is also most limited in parking. Parking will be available along the road to the Upper 528 aid station (Boat Launch).
