Solo Racers

Can I do it without a crew? Yes you can do the race without a crew. It will be a little slower but you can get refueled at the aid stations yourself and have equipment droped off at the critical spot before dark on the ambler loop. Or you can pair up with many of the teams and perhaps they can help assist you. But many people do it totally alone, but having a crew there is a very nice thing, especially in the latter stages of the race when you begin to lose your mind.  If you’d like a support crew but finding it hard to convince Family and Friends to do this for you it is possible to hire the Mountain Madnes Tours crew who have run a support service for soloists at the race for soloist for the past 2 years. Check out this link to find out more.

ONE parking pass per soloist is included in your race kit for your crew.

Ambler Loop Drop Bag.  Runners may elect to have a small bag of equipment and food items sent to the Ambler Loop Emergency Aid Station, which will be attended by volunteers only. No crews are allowed at this station. If you wish to drop off a small equipment bag (ex. headlamp, rain gear, extra food and drink), your drop bag must be clearly marked with your race number on the outside. We recommend something durable and waterproof, at least as strong as double bagged plastic, with race number printed in waterproof black marker on large white tape. All drop bags must be delivered to the drop off at race registration by 8pm Friday evening (penalty box at the hockey rink). Bags can be collected Monday at the Awards presentation. Please pick up your bag, we are not responsible for lost or stolen items (which hasn't been a problem in the past, but please don't call us at Christmas about the Rolex you left in the Louis Vuitton gear bag that you didn't pick up). After one week we take them to the dump!

How does the lottery affect my SOLO registration? We figure there are only a certain number of people crazy enough to attempt this solo in any given year, and we've reserved this number of registrations exclusively for Soloists and our sponsors. If these spaces do not fill within the registration period, they will be allocated to the Relay/Marathon category in the Final Fools Draw on April 1st. Because of this special consideration, entries in the Solo category are no longer transferable to the Relay category. I burned everything I got at the Sin7 - Can I give my race number to my friend? Solo division substitution strictly prohibited. You must enter the solo division with total commitment. In either case of solo or relay there are no refunds after 45 days once entry is accepted (and before May 1) – NO EXCEPTIONS.
