Runners do not need to have a crew. You are allowed to receive assistance from a crew within aid station boundaries so long as your crew does not impede other runners or race staff.
  • Dropping Out (DNF/Did Not Finish): If you find it necessary to “DNF” the race, you must do so at an aid station when you reach the Acacia Tree area (for 21k runners). Notify the aid station marshal and have the marshal remove your bib number. If you feel you cannot get to the nearest aid station, stay on the trail, call the assistance of other runner and find the sweeper to assist you. Do not leave the course without notifying an aid station marshal or sweeper.
  • Mandatory Drop Out: Medical staff and aid station captains have the authority to pull a runner from the event should they deem it unsafe for the runner to continue. The runner must comply with this decision.
