Race strategy—length of individual running segments: teams retain the flexibility to determine race strategy and to modify their plan during the race.  However, at no time will any one “leg” be allowed that is less than one full mile in length.

In all cases where the race route directs runners onto the road shoulder, runners MUST run on the OCEAN side of Overseas Highway FACING TRAFFIC.  There are no exceptions to this rule.  Following someone who violates this rule is no excuse.  This is considered a major violation and will be enforced accordingly.
Violations of any race rules will result in a 10-minute penalty for each infraction.  Depending upon the severity of the violation and other factors, including but not limited to flagrancy of the violation and safety considerations, violators may be disqualified from the race at any time at the discretion of the Race Director.  Race marshals will be monitoring the course throughout the race to ensure compliance.  They will have the authority to impose time penalties on the spot.  Race rules will be VERY strictly enforced.

Race timing will be chip-based for 2011.  Results will be posted at the finish line, and uploaded to the race website for those who would like to follow their runner or team’s progress at home.  Top finishers and age-range winners will be identified as they finish.
