Runners cannot accept any aid from anyone (crew, family, friend, “stranger”, bicycle) beyond 100 feet of an Aid Station. (Of course in an emergency/crisis situation, runners should accept aid from anyone who is available to assist with their needs!)
There are 6 road crossings on the course. Only 1 road crossing will offer runners the right of way. 
The New River Trail is a multi-use trail. Expect to share the trail with other users including cyclist and horses and riders. Horses have the right of way. When approaching from behind, slow down and ask to pass on the riders left.
