Whether you are planning a 10 mile or a 100 mile race keep this schedule in mind:
Pumpkin Holler Hunnerd awards will be given for:
Awards ceremonies will be held ad-hoc by the race director as groups finish for each distance.
Ultra-distance (100 Mile, 100K, and 50K) runners are welcome to use drop bags as follows:
Drop Bag Retrieval - Please remember to take your drop bags home.
We totally understand that everyone is tired and wants to head home after running. However, runners nor their crew are permitted to drive on the course to pick up their drop bags. 100K and 50K runners who want to grab their drop bags at the conclusion of his/her race can follow the crew map directions and drive the paved roads to the aid stations. Otherwise, after the last 100 mile runners leave the drop bag aid stations, the drop bags will be delivered to the start/finish area.
We want your experience at the Pumpkin Holler Hunnerd to be the best possible. For your safety, the safety of others and to ensure we can continue this event we have a few rules to follow.
Pacers and crew can be the difference between an ultra runner finishing a race or tallying up a dreaded DNF. So, for the best race experience and the safety of all participants, Pumpkin Holler Hunnerd has specific, non-negotiable rules. Hey, we’re ultra runners and we hate rules, but they’re a necessary evil and can result in the disqualification of the race participant if a pacer or crew member violates, or otherwise interferes with the safety and integrity of PHH.
We want your experience at the Pumpkin Holler Hunnerd to be the best possible. For your safety, the safety of others and to ensure we can continue this event we have a few rules pacers must follow.
A two-hour early start is provided for 100 mile runners who know they will need extra time on the course (over 30 hours). Drop bags for the early start runners may not be at the aid stations for their first loop. Race volunteers will deliver bags as soon as possible after the 8:00 race starts. Early start runners should plan accordingly.
Aid stations may not be fully setup for the early start runners. Early start runners should plan to carry their own food and water for the first six hours.
