RULES AND REGULATIONS:

1. NO LITTER. LEAVE NO TRACE

AUTOMATIC DISQUALIFICATION AND BANNED FROM ANY DTR RACE.
The course must be in better shape than how we found it. Littering is absolutely against our principle and will not be tolerated.

2. Stay on Course. If you get off course, you must return on your own to the place where you got off and start over. I wish we didn’t have to add this to the rules as cheating is the worse thing someone can do, but if a race Marshall catches a person (cheating) you will be banned from any future race that DTR hosts for life. Remember, the real prize is in the memory of the achievement.

RULES FOR CREW, PACERS, AND VEHICLES
