Laps will be tracked for each runner using MyLaps ProChip timing & scoring system. As each runner crosses over the mat to mark a “split,” the system will record it. Since the mat will be passed each time the runner circles the course, each split is thus equal to one lap. One word of caution regarding the counting of laps; Only completed laps will count towards your overall total mileage.
Pacers: This is a very simple course and pacers will not be allowed. You would have to work hard to get lost and in the spirit of competition try to do your best on your own efforts.
Any two or more registered runners, can run together as much as they desire. This is true no matter which race you are entered, all runners will be using the same course.
Trekking Poles: No Poles Allowed.
One aid station will be open from 9:00am on Thursday through Sunday morning. The aid station is run by the finest crew of ultra running cooks. They will prepare an array of food that keeps you full of energy and your palate entertained. Special Veggie / Vegan foods are available through out the entire event. It will also be stocked with the usual ultra fare as well as hot and cold food for the entire event. Participants and crew will have access to prepare their own special concoctions. Access to the walk in refrigerator is available to everyone as well. Please notify Race Director if access to kitchen is wanted. PLEASE NOTE THE AID STATION FOOD IS NOT FOR CREW AND FAMILY. Also, your aid starts once your race starts and not before.
Sussex County Fairgrounds has public restrooms located just a few steps from the course. There are also Shower facilities located inside the rest rooms.

Please be careful when crossing the course. Also be aware that there will be many other animals on the property. If your pet is uncomfortable around horses, cows, poultry or other animals it may be best to leave them home.
SHARING THE COURSE WITH THE GENERAL PUBLIC
Please be aware that the course will be closed to the general public while we’re using it. Having said that, Sussex County Fairgrounds is an active Fairground and will have a horse show, a poultry show, a garden show, a farmers market and possibly other activities going on away from the Race Course.
