Medical

Racer Support Crew (and Pacing):

Participate in the race! Some individual out-of-town runners may prefer to compete with a support crew but are unable to bring people from home. Crew will drive the support vehicle, meeting the racer at pre-determined intervals to replenish drinks, ice and food, change shoes, clothes or gear, take a break, etc. Some racers may want a crew member pacing him/her for at least part of the race. Good crew are an integral part of the successful racer's effort, providing encouragement as well as physical support. Crewing can be a very fulfilling experience. Find your runner by logging onto the race Facebook page and offering your service.
