Vermont 50 Pacer Information
Prepare for being a Vermont 50 Pacer
We do not encourage pacers out on the course because the trail is very narrow and we want the participants to have as much room as possible to enjoy the course. But if you feel it is necessary, you may have one for about the last 10 miles.
Pacer Bibs You must Check In on Saturday or Sunday morning before boarding the Shuttle to Aid Station #9 Stones. You be given a PACER BIB.
Pacer Parking You must park at the Race Start/Finish parking Area. Parking is at the Ascutney Mountain Base Lodge, one way in/one way out road. Please follow the signs to designated parking areas and please DO NOT park where it says DO NOT PARK.
Meeting Up With Your Pacer Meet Your Pacer at Aid Station #9 Stones. Runners are allowed to have pacers from Aid Station #9 Stones (mile 42) to the Finish.
Pacers will be shuttled to Aid Station #9 Stones. The shuttle van leaves Cunningham’s Parking Lot at the BIG TENT about every 45 minutes. The shuttle runs from about 9 a.m. to about 4 p.m.. There will be a White Board listing the approximate departure and return times outside the Big Tent.
Runners you should have your Pacers get to Aid Station #9 Stones about 1-1.5 hours before you THINK you will be running through, nothing worse than missing your pacer.
