|INJURY||If a member of your team becomes injured and is unable to complete his/her
leg during the race, another team member may complete the leg. Your team will
still be eligible for an award if you score.
Because of the injury, you may now be in a different division based on the number of men/women and ages on the team. Please notify a committee member at Funspot, so we may change your teamís division.
|MISSING RUNNER||If a runner gets to the Exchange Point and no teammate is present, for
the exchange, the team can do one of two things...
1) Wait for the missing team member to show up (remember, itís your
responsibility to be at your Exchange point on time) or
2) Another teammate can do the leg and you will still be eligible for
an award if you score.
Please discuss with your team members how you will choose to handle this situation. The Race Officials at the Exchange Point must be notified before you continue the race. Strictly Enforced!

NOTE: Exchange 5 at Morgan Farm can NOT be accessed by car- there will be Race Marshall's blocking access.

Runners finishing Leg 5 at Morgan Farm can get the bus at finish of that leg and get dropped off at end of leg 6(Exchange 6) at Moultonboro School.

These will be on every road that the runners will be running on.
Hopefully, this will help make the Public aware that this is a time to slow down. Just be Careful.
|OFFICIALS||Officials will be present at the Start, Finish, and at every Exchange Point. Exchange Points are busy places. If you have a dispute with another team, please try to resolve this issue among yourselves. If you are unable to do so, please bring it up with a North Medford Officer at the finish of the race. If anyone badgers a Race Official at an Exchange Point or argues with a Police Officer regarding interpretations about parking, traffic, crossing roads, etc. this may result in disqualification of your team. Remember to be polite and responsible. Do not block the view of race officials trying to record your numbers and your times. They need FULL VIEW of your NUMBERS and EXCHANGE.|
