Call 911 if is necessary.
Call the Course Director (his # is in the handbook) and let him know. Please have your team name, # & leg (more specific location info is helpful if possible, but if we at least know that you are in leg 25, then it gives us an idea of where you are).
First of all, please get to safety.
If you are in a rental, most rentals will have a 800 Service number to call. Call them.
If you are in a private vehicle, then call the on road service # or general on road assistance membership someone in your van might have. (It may be a good idea to make sure at least one person in each van is a AAA member.)
Call the Course Director (his # is in the handbook) to let him know of your issue so we can make the appropriate adjustments to your times.
The first wave of runners will start at 6:00 am on Friday. The teams with the slowest estimated times will be in this wave. The last teams finish by 6:00 pm on Saturday. This translates to a 36 hour time limit.
THIS IS ONE OF THE REASONS WHY IT IS SO IMPORTANT TO GIVE US ACCURATE ESTIMATED TIMES WHEN REGISTERING. You could jeopardize your team from being pulled off the course or the safety of our support teams. If you put times that are too slow, you could jeopardize not having support at the T/A. We carefully time the set up and tear down of each T/A, police detail & venue rentals based on registrations times. So please, for your safety and the safety of our volunteers, register with accurate times. If we think you purposely “fudged” times, we reserve the right to DQ you.
For example, if you register slower times in order to start earlier, you may arrive at a T/A too early. This can happen in the first set of legs as someone may simply set out faster than anticipated (because they are so excited!!). But if the pattern continues, then it is obvious you fudged the times and we will either hold you at a T/A or DQ you. Nobody wants that. Just give us accurate times so that we can start you in the correct waves.
There are either toilets or a portable toilet at every staffed Transition Area. The two Free Exchanges (11 and 31) are not staffed and do not have toilets. There are non on the actual courses themselves….just at the T/A’s.
At VTA 12 (Bucksport High School), VTA 18 (The Penobscot Bay YMCA), VTA 24 (Great Salt Bay Community School) and VTA 30 (Brunswick High School) there are showers. Some of these locations will ask for a donation to use the showers. Please be generous and help them raise money for their non-profit.
At VTA 18 (The Penobscot Bay YMCA) and at VTA 24 (Great Salt Bay School) you will be able to sleep on the gym floor for several hours. We recommend that Van 1 runners sleep at VTA 24 and Van 2 runners sleep at VTA 18. Both locations may ask for a donation from you to sleep there. Please be generous with your donations and help these non-profits raise money.
