Course Rules

  1. We cannot comprehensively marshal all 160 km of The ENDURrun. We will do our
    absolute best to provide safe, clearly marked courses for all Stages, utilizing the following resources:

    • volunteer marshals
    • Police
    • cones
    • flags
    • caution tape
    • spray paint
    • direction markers
    • km markers
    • water stations
    • course map review
  2. The chance for unforeseen events is equal for all participants. These events would
    include traffic accidents, traffic congestion, unplanned non-marshaled traffic lights,
    police or fire emergencies, citizens moving course markings, trains, dogs, etc. Should a
    participant experience one of these events, it will be deemed an unforeseen event, and no
    additional consideration will be given to the participant.
  3. Courses are measured by following the right hand side of the road at all times.
    You must run within one or two feet of the right side of the road at all times. Cutting
    corners or tangents will not be allowed for the following reasons:

    • No roads are closed to traffic. You cannot see the traffic behind you to cut corners
      or tangents safely.
    • The courses are measured this way, so by cutting corners or tangents, you will not be
      running the entire distance.
    • All runners are aware of these same rules, optimizing fairness.
  4. Penalties for course violations could vary from time penalties (1 minute, 2 minute,
    etc.) to event disqualification. Reports of course violations will be reviewed by The ENDURrun Director, and The ENDURrun Director’s decision will be final.
