All Runners must have support through a Crew Chief Unless approved by Tim Waz prior to registering. The Crew Chief must travel in a vehicle from check point to check point, but may not administer direct support to a runner from a moving vehicle (car or bike). Crew Chief and other support individuals must be on foot when in physical contact with their runner. You must include the name of your crew chief and cell phone number with your race application. If any changes occur prior to the event you must provide new contact information to the Race Director in person prior to the event. Support crews may not stop their vehicles on bridges at any time and must obey all traffic laws. The event takes place on sidewalks, bike paths, bridges and on open roads.
***NEW BEGINNING 2019*** All Runners must either wear a day-glow safety vest or HIGHLY VISIBLE colors on your shorts and tops. All runners MUST have a RED flashing light on your front and back of your shorts at all times which is not covered by a shirt, hydration pack etc. Any runner not running with their lights will receive 1-warning and will be immediately removed from the course on the second infraction. This is a mandatory requirement of the race. If you are unsure if your outfit will be race approved, please reach out to me directly before race day: [email protected] 843.986.4523
Runners must check in at all 3 check-points through-out the course, failure to check in will result in a DNF and runners will be pulled off the course.

All runners must check in at EVERY check point, failure to do so will result in a DNF.
If for any reason a runner must leave the course or receives medical attention on the course (from a paramedic such as administering an IV) the runner will be automatically disqualified resulting in a DNF. Crew Chiefs must check in with the Race Director if your runner leaves the course at any time. Entering a business along the course such as a gas station is not consider “leaving the course”.
Crew Chiefs are responsible for the overall well-being of their runners and must make the final decision as to if a runner can continue. Runners will all sign an agreement stating that they give their Crew Chiefs the final call and will agree with their decision to protect your overall health by not allowing for you to continue the race. If the Race Director feels that it is in the best interest that a runner does not complete the event, that runner will be pulled from the race. If at any time a Crew Chief pulls his runner off the course, you should immediately contact Tim Waz at 843.986.4523.
