Select aid stations will also be responsible for pacer check-in procedure and drop bag management.

    COURSE MARSHAL

    Course Marshals will be positioned at key intersections on-course to provide directional assistance to
    runners as they maneuver the trails. In certain situations, course marshals will be on radio or stationed at road crossings where runners are required to yield to vehicular traffic. These positions require a minimum age of 18, unless accompanied by an adult.
