All Vermont 50 participants, crew/spectators and volunteers should realize we are visiting a small community. That community has given us permission to enjoy their piece of Vermont.
To continue to hold our race in this community, we ask everyone to commit to the following:
- Obey ALL speed limits (most dirt roads are 35 MPH, some paved roads can be 25 MPH)
- Keep noise at a reasonable level
- Do Not Litter, keep our race community clean of trash

Crew Vehicles On Course Must Display An Aid Station Access Tag
Participants may register ONE vehicle at the Car Vehicle Table to “crew” them on course.
This vehicle MUST display the “Official Aid Station Access Car Tag” to allow them to park at the designated aid stations.
Relay Teams-one vehicle per team.
Please stay off the actual race course as much as possible.
You will be given Crew directions to these designated aid stations at the Information Table.
Why only ONE Vehicle ?
In order to receive the proper permits and support of the community members around our race we MUST keep traffic on race day to a minimum.
We have agreed with the communities to enforce the ONE VEHICLE per participant (or relay team) rule. This agreement allows our race to continue.
Violation of the ONE VEHICLE rule jeopardizes the future of our race.
Friends and Family-Are they Crew?
They can be.
Crews follow you around on race day giving you support during the race.
They can provide you with food, beverages, change of clothing etc.
But they can ONLY do this at designated aid station locations on course.
And their vehicle must be registered with us and they must display our race crew parking permit.
In order to enter any of these aid stations, the CREW VEHICLE must display our race an Official Aid Station Access Car Tag.
Vehicles WITHOUT A TAG will be asked to leave or will be towed.
Crews can meet their race participants at:
#3 Skunk Hollow (50 Mile ONLY) Mile 12.0
#7 Greenall’s (50 Km, 50 Mi) K13.4 M/50M 31.5 M
#10 Johnson’s (50 Km, 50 Mi) K28.5 M/ 50M 47.5 M
CONTACT WITH RACE PARTICIPANTS CAN ONLY BE MADE AT THESE DESIGNATED AID STATIONS. ANY OTHER CONTACT DURING THE RACE IS A VIOLATION OF RACE RULES AND GROUNDS FOR DISQUALIFICATION.
Friends, Family, Spectators-Your Cheering Squad
Friends, Family and people just wanting to see you finish can park at the Ascutney Outdoors parking lot (or other designated parking around base camp) and wait for you to arrive at the finish line to cheer you on.
No parking permit is required to park at base camp.
