Rules & Regulations

The Mountaineer is grateful to the state of New York and to private land owners for allowing us to host this event. Our small hamlet is surrounded by state land and this charity run would not be possible without venturing onto such land, which encompasses 70% of the town of Keene. GATR gives visitors and locals alike a chance to enjoy the mountains, get some exercise and celebrate the spring and black fly season!

 

This is a wilderness trail run - no support will be given.  Participants are on their own from start to finish; prepared with own water, food and any other supplies. Volunteers stationed on the course are there to make sure runners take the right trail–they will not have water, food, moleskin, etc. We are privileged to be allowed to hold the race on such a wonderful course, and need to respect this wilderness area. Anyone caught littering will be immediately disqualified; if you drop an energy packet by accident, pick it up. Our permission to hold this run rests on the behavior of the runners.  Please plan ahead, prepare, & leave no trace.
