Pacers at Hardrock

Pacers must sign in at one of the crew access aid stations and must run at least the whole leg to the next crew access or specifically allowed aid station, as there is generally no access for them in between. Pacers may not continue unless accompanying their runner.

In 2016, pacers are allowed from Ouray on. In addition to crew access aid stations (Grouse Gulch, Sherman, Cunningham), pacers can start or stop at the Maggie Gulch Aid Station, but only if they make the ~4 mile trip from Co Rd 2 on foot or bicycle. No vehicles are allowed at Maggie AS.

Runners over 60 years old may have pacers for the whole run.

Muling is not allowed.
