RACE RULES

BE KIND.

BE KIND AND RESPECTFUL: Seriously, none of these races would be possible without the help of the great volunteers, sponsors, public agencies, etc, so please give them the upmost respect! If you have an issue, please bring it up with Alpine Running.

LITTERING: No.

CHECK-IN AT AID STATIONS: Volunteers are tracking runner bib numbers upon arrival into aid stations throughout a race.

TIME CUT-OFFS: Race cut-offs exist for several reasons; safety, keeping the race on schedule and our volunteer's precious time. Remember that cut-off times indicate when a runner must leave an aid station.

NOTIFYING RACE OFFICIALS: If you do not finish a race, you MUST notify a race official before leaving the race. For safety and permit concerns, runners unable to finish the course for whatever reason may only drop at an aid station or at the finish line if close. We do not want to be looking for you late into the night.

RECEIVING AID - CREW/AID STATION: Runners may only receive aid at aid stations - no stashing aid on course or receiving aid from anyone outside aid stations.

DROP BAG GUIDELINE: Drop bags need to be labeled with your name, your bib number, and the aid station where it is going. Drop bags will be returned to the finish after that aid station has closed. If it is a crew accessible aid station, you may have crew pick up your drop bag there. It is possible that drop bags may not arrive to the finish until near the end of the race. Many of our aid stations are in very remote locations. If you are unable to pick up your drop bag or you forget - you have 1 week to contact us and pick up your bag in Central Oregon. After that time, items left will be donated. 

DROP BAGS WILL NOT BE MAILED  

STAY ON COURSE: Stay on designated race course. Period.

ANTI-DOPING: Anyone issued a temporary or lifetime ban from the World Anti-Dopig Agency (WADA) will not be allowed to race. The use of WADA-banned substances is not allowed before, during or after races.

RACE-SPECIFIC RULES: Each race has specific rules. Refer to race webpage, pre-race email announcements and pre-race briefings.
