How to Enter

Registration will be via UltraSignUp only.

Entry will open on March 21st, 2015 and be limited to the first 150 qualified entrants in each of the solo events. The 100 Mile Relay will be open to only the first 30 teams.

Registration includes a manicured, hill-free course with little to no mud**, stocked aid stations, more mining reflectors than last year for those not paying attention, a delicious spread of post-race food (note: options limited for Fruitarians), either a 100% recycled made-in-Maine Tech shirt OR an event print, potentially a finisher's schwag item for each event, buckles for 100 mile finishers. Pre-race Pasta dinners an additional $12 with advance registration/notice as will be post-race food.

**Note: the part about the course was a lie, the rest of the description that followed about what you get for your dollars wasn't.

  • VCU 100-Mile

    Athletes will be required to have demonstrated the completion of either:

    • An organized/verifiable 100 mile run any time prior to the race
    • OR
    • A 50 mile or 100 km trail (roads will be considered) completed within the last year

    Considerations will be made for athletes who have not yet completed the required distances but who are signed up for qualifying events prior to September 7th, 2014. These athletes will be placed on the wait list behind qualified runners and formally granted acceptance upon completion of their respective events if space remains.

  • VCU 50-Mile

    Open to any and all who understand that Virgil Crest is a challenging course which can make for both a rewarding and long day on your feet.

    The Virgil Crest 100 Mile Trail Relay Open Divisions (non service-related teams, see below) will be open to teams of 5 covering the 100 Mile Ultras course and have a 28 hour cut-off. Teams are permitted to break up the 20 legs as they see fit with a minimum of only 1 leg per runner. Refer to the chart for leg breakdowns. Members may only hand-off at designated aid stations and runners must reach the target aid station to remain qualified. Teams may provide supplies and support only within aid station and no runner is to receive aid, pacing, or muling outside of those designated stations. Teams are permitted the use of only 1 car at any one time on the course with the exception of emergency situations.
