Endurance Running Race
October 12-13, 2013
Fast, flat course with lots of aid stations. These races are run on the trails around the beautiful Boulder Reservoir. They consist of 7.14 mile laps and runners will be given 30 hours to complete the 100 mile course and 8 hours for the 50K. Any 100 mile runner dropping before the 24 hour mark will automatically be given an official distance in the 24 hour solo category. It is a fast course with approximately 1,400 feet of gain and loss for the 100 mile and 420 feet for the 50K, with a mix of pavement, dirt roads and non-technical singletrack. With aid stations every 3.5 miles runners will enjoy Hammer Gel products and sports drink out on the course and a great mix of foods and drink at the Base Camp aid station, including pasta and hot soup for the 100 milers at night. They will be run simultaneously with the 24 Hours of Boulder so there will be a lot of aid, great support and lots of energy.
Pre Race procedures
Each racer must check in at the Base Camp no later than 20 minutes prior to the start of the race unless management is notified beforehand.
Pacers are allowed after 7:00 p.m on Saturday for the 100 milers. All pacers must register at the registration table and will receive a number and aid station privileges.
Racers must attend the pre-race meeting.
Racers must log-in on each lap at the Base Camp located at the Start/Finish area. There will be a running clock, therefore the lap splits will run from lap-end time to lap-end time. It is the racer’s responsibility to verify that you are logged-in correctly. You must clearly state your number and wait until the race official acknowledges that your time and number are recorded correctly. There will also be a number check at the aid station. It is important that you check in at the aid station or your lap will not count.
Water and food may be supplied to any racer, by anyone, anywhere on the course. However, racers must stay well clear of the course when taking food or water. A strict Leave No Trace policy will be implemented. Race management will supply an aid station with water, sports drink and energy gels halfway through the course.
Racers must display their race numbers at all times.
Federal, state and county laws and ordinances must be followed at all times.
Staying on course
While running a lap, racers must stay on the designated course. Any racer that goes off the designated course (i.e. shortcutting) will result in a disqualification.
Official protests must be made directly to the Race Director.
The race director has the final say in any ruling, including rulings made by the co-director.
Quiet hours at night, will be imposed
from 7:00 p.m. Saturday until 7:00 a.m. Sunday. During this time, noise must be kept to a minimum but the fun will continue.
Running after dark
Racers entering the course two hours before sunset on Saturday and up to one-half hour before sunrise on Sunday must carry a light source and it must be in good working order. Racing with lights out is permitted but all runners must have some sort of lighting affixed to the outside of their clothing (i.e. glow stick). The course will be marked with reflective tape. We suggest using a headlamp or a handheld light that can be raised to eye level for night time navigation in order to maximize the reflective tape.
Racers must complete his/her last lap by 3:00 p.m on Sunday for both 100 milers and 50K. All 100 milers finishing before the 24 hour mark will be included in the 24 Hour awards at 9:30. All others will be given their awards as they cross the finish line. 24 Hours of Boulder solo runners will not be entered into the Boulder 100 standings.
Medals will be awarded for 1-3 place in both male and female categories in each of the following age categories:
Everyone who finishes 100 miles within the 30 hour limit and the 50K within the 8 hour limit will receive a finisher’s memento.
