OFFICIAL RACE RULES
Susitna 100 and Little Su 50K
Susitna 100 racers are expected to attend the Thursday evening gear check and meeting. If for some reason you do not attend, you may have your gear checked on race morning after the race start. There will be no gear check on Friday or prior to the 9:00 race start on Saturday. See details for the pre-race meeting on the Susitna 100 page at left. Little Su 50K racers are welcome to attend the Thursday meeting and pick up their race packet then. However, everyone signs in on race morning.
Dogs: Any racer with a dog on the course will be disqualified. Please do not bring your pets to the race. The race start is the Point Mackenzie General Store. We are guests of this business and must be considerate by leaving no trash or dog excrement. If your friends and family bring dogs to the start and let the dogs out of the car, please encourage them to be considerate also.
Phone calls: We know you have friends and family who want to track your progress during the race. Please ask them to do so via the website, which will be updated with results throughout the race if weather and conditions allow. During the race, our phones are used to contact checkpoints and facilitate racer safety. If a true emergency arises, and someone must contact a racer or race personnel, then this number may be used: In the history of the race, only five or six such situations have arisen. Events such as death in the family or imminent birth of a child come to mind. Arranging post-race transportation is NOT an emergency.
Please do not call any of the checkpoints, including the Point Mackenzie General Store.
