Everything About Crews, Pacers, and Drop Bags

Accessibility for Crews and Pacers

Support crews and pacers can only go to the seven designated CPs. Receiving assistance (coffee, food, clothes, bandage, a place to sleep, etc.) anywhere else on the course will result in the racer being disqualified. We work hard to ensure fairness for all competitors and to keep it a level playing field, we need everyone to respect this rule.

You can find driving directions to supported CPs here, or pick up a copy at race check-in.

Here is an overview of where you can meet your crew and pacers, and get drop bags:

Drop Bags

NEW! This year, we are going to ask that you bring a maximum of two drop bags/bins. The southern bag will start at CP3, then move to CP4, and then to CP13. The northern bag will start at CP6, then move to CP7, CP9, and then back to CP6/CP10.

Only people without support crews need a drop bag. Please keep your bags or bins under 25kg and a reasonable size. If we have a whole pile of huge bags, we may not be able to fit them all under the tents, and then they will be out in the elements.
