Runner Support: Drop bags, pacers, and crews
We do not have “medical checks” or medical professionals at the event. You need to take care of yourself. Please read our medical policy before you enter.
All finishers will receive an engraved belt buckle — silver for under 24 hours, pewter otherwise. There will be awards for the male and female winners in the categories noted below. At least two competitors must start the race in a category for an award to be earned.
- Master (age 40-49)
- Senior (age 50-59)
- Super Senior (age 60+)
With the exception of the Solo division winner, the winners of the categories listed above can only receive one award. The overall winner will not receive the award for his or her age group. The overall winner may receive the solo division award if he or she participated in the solo division. The awards work down as listed above. The result is that the first VHTRC is the first member of the VHTRC to finish who did not win the overall award or an age group award.
Special recognition is given to 5, 10, 15, and 20 year finishers.
For those runners who complete the event without crew, pacer, or headphone support. Runners may sign up for the Solo Division at packet pickup. More information on the Solo Division.
Post-run celebration and awards ceremony
We have food and refreshments at the finish line that will be free to all — runners, volunteers, crews, and pacers. The awards ceremony will take place in the afternoon. See the schedule of events.
