Do I have to start in Augusta?
If you live in Maine the answer is yes. If you live out of state I will allow a start somewhere else on the route if you really canít make it to Augusta and the following rules are followed. For this run, I recommend that you start in Augusta.
1.† You call the Rallymaster and get approval before you start.
2.† A receipt at the start point with the city, state, date and time. No exceptions. The time on the receipt will be your official start time.
3.† A receipt at the finish from the same place as the start. The time on the receipt will be your official end time.
4.†† A receipt from every gas stop, toll, meal, etc. If you spent money, get a receipt.

6.† Do numbers 2, 3, 4 and 5 again for your second run.
