A CUP- this is a cupless race. cups account for a large majority of race trash. Please have collapsible cup for soda and most importantly please also carry a cup that can handle hot liquids like broth and coffee. I like using a foam coffee mug or camp style collapsible.
A JACKET – Not having a jacket will end your race pretty quickly. while it may be sunny and warm in the rolling hills in the farm valley, things change quickly on the way up to Whitetop ! especially if you’re walking or get slow on the way back down. A jacket is mandatory, even if you have crew. Most folks that have run and finished it several years, bring a light hat and gloves with them. I cant stress this enough- every year someone has to leave the race at Taylors Valley because they ignored the mandatory gear. Last year- a person arrived and needed medical treatment because they didnt have the mandatory equipment. You have trained way too hard to have your race come to an end over a jacket.
You are allowed to have one pacer with you and your first pacer is allowed to join the second time through the Alvarado aid station.
Pacers dont need bibs but we always have some cool unicorn ones at packet pick up for your pacer to have .
Athletes With Disabilities
Criteria for AWD Entry
As a runner it’s inevitable that you’re going to register for a race that at some point later on you’re unfortunately not going to be able to start for one reason or another. It happens to all of us, especially as race registrations need to open months in advance of the races themselves, and life happens during those interim months: Injuries, work, family emergencies, etc. We assure you we get it; we really do. And we strive to be as understanding and cooperative as we practically and financially can.
But just because the race hasn’t happened yet doesn’t mean we haven’t already incurred significant expenses related to that race. We pay taxes on the income from the entry fees; we pay for permits, insurance, and supplies (including race shirts, buckles and other awards) For all of these reasons and more we cannot offer refunds, deferrals or transfers.
