EVENT RULES

DIVISION CATEGORY

  • Participants competing in a military uniform will wear DCUs or their service equivalent uniform.

  • Military participants may not exchange their boots for any other footgear along the route. Anyone caught violating this rule will be disqualified. Footwear are limited to military service recognized boots. Consult your service regulations. 

  • All participants in the march will have at least a full quart of water at the start of the race.

  • Numbers will be attached to the front chest of the uniform or T-shirt only.  There will be checkpoints along the route.  Numbers must be attached to the front or risk disqualification.

  • All individuals wearing a military uniform must comply with the proper wear of the uniform at all times.

TEAMS

  • Teams will consist of 3 members, no more, no less.

  • All teams are required to march single file for the first 2 miles of the march.  This allows faster marchers and runners room to pass.

  • Teams will be judged by their times added together for a final timing; however, if a team member cannot continue, it is the team’s duty to ensure that they are left in the care of an aid station. Leaving a comrade behind is not in the spirit of the event. Once a team member is left in the care of medical personnel, the remainder of the team may choose to complete the course; however, the entire team is disqualified from placing. The team's time will still be posted on our website with an annotation of the discrepancy.
