Last Man Standing Ultramarathon 2020 Rules and Regulations
Racers must declare whether they are A. “in it to win it” or B. aiming for a personal best.
A Racers will begin at noon on Saturday September 5th and start new laps at the top of every hour.
B Racers will begin at 12:30 on Saturday September 5th. They will begin new laps on the half hour.
Race organizers will make the lap starts clear and timely for both groups of runners.
Racers will be required to wear face coverings in the transition area. Face coverings will not be required on the course. We request that everyone on site practice social distancing whenever possible. Hand sanitizer will be provided on site.
Because of the limitations on the number of people allowed to gather, we must place restrictions on support people and spectators.
Each registered runner will be allowed 1 support person, we encourage those who can to share a single support person
No support will be allowed on site until 1:00 PM on Saturday September 5th
No spectators will be allowed on site until after 8:00 PM on Saturday September 5th
Registered runners who bow out of the race may stay on site as a spectator or support person for a runner or runners still in the race
Race organizers will not be providing the foods or hydration we normally provide under the large tent. Racers will all be 100% responsible for their own nutrition and hydration.
Based on the number of registered runners, we believe this format will allow us to run a safe, fun event while staying as true as possible to the traditional Last Man Standing Ultramarathon you know and love.
As we get closer to the event, we also need to share the current state of Maine guidelines for out of state visitors to Maine:
Mandates for Anyone Entering Maine
It is mandated that all out-of-state travelers coming into Maine, as well as Maine residents returning to Maine, complete a 14-day quarantine upon arrival. This means: You need to arrive with enough food for 14 days or arrange to have food delivered to you. You cannot go out to grocery stores. Stay at home. You cannot go out to public places. Avoid contact with others, especially those who are at high risk of severe COVID-19 illness.
Negative PCR Test Result
The State will allow adults who have a negative COVID-19 PCR test collected no more than 72 hours before arriving in Maine to forgo the 14-day quarantine upon arrival in Maine. A non-PCR test, such as an antigen or antibody test, is not accepted to forgo quarantine for visitors and those returning to Maine. Maine is strongly urging visitors to “Know Before You Go,” meaning they should get tested and receive their test results in their home state before traveling to Maine, which will allow them to take appropriate action depending on the result. If you do not have the test result by the time you arrive, you must quarantine in your lodging until you receive the result. Individuals may be tested upon arrival in Maine as well, but they must quarantine while awaiting the results. Additionally, the State will exempt residents from the following states from the testing and 14-day quarantine requirement altogether because, when adjusted for population, the prevalence of active cases of COVID-19 in these states is similar.
Exempt effective June 12, 2020:
Exempt effective July 3, 2020:
If you are traveling from any state other than Maine or the exempted states listed above, you must either quarantine in Maine for 2 weeks prior to the event or provide race organizers with documentation of a negative Covid-19 PCR test upon your arrival. This also applies to support crew and spectators who are coming from a state not listed above.
Race organizers will be taking temperatures of every participant when they arrive to pick up their race packet.
