Rule Enforcement and Penalties
Race rules are designed to provide a safe and fair experience for everyone involved and to help ensure our ability to produce the race again next year.
Like we said before, cheating in this race would just be strange…it is a charity event, and you are truly a model for 30,000 children who participate in The 100 Mile Club®. Cheating would be weird and wrong and you probably wouldn’t even be in this race if that were something you were likely to do. So, just don’t cheat or take shortcuts. We don’t want our kids to do it, and we definitely don’t want you to, either.
Major rule infractions by racers or their crew, especially those regarding “cheating” or dangerous behavior will result in immediate disqualification of the racer.
The Race Director has the authority, at any time, to overrule any rule or invent a new rule based on extenuating, unforeseen, and/or unusual circumstances and/or to maintain the integrity and fair play necessary for the successful completion, and continuation, of the race.
The Race Director has ultimate authority in regards to all rules, their interpretation, and their enforcement. There is no “appeals committee” nor an “appeals process.” All entrants in the race, and their support crews, willingly acknowledge this fact, as well as all other race rules, by attending the race in any capacity.
In all cases and circumstances, it is the intent, and spirit, of the rules which will govern their implementation and enforcement.
