GENERAL RULES
It is possible to participate as agonist (Trail), walker (Walktrail), or volunteer. The races and walks take place in semi-autonomy. Semi-autonomy is defined as having the capacity to be autonomous between two refreshments posts, as much on the food front as that of clothing and security, allowing for adapting to problems encountered or foreseen (bad weather, physical problems, injury…).

The routes are for at least 90% dirt roads and paths even with very high slopes and in difficult terrain. Participation is not recommended without an adequate training. Who participates, it does so with the knowledge that, due to the nature of the routes, he/she runs the risk of incurring even very serious traumas, and that it can take a long time to get any help.

Along the route, are planned  refreshment stations in a variable number in relation to the length of the route. The refreshment stations will be supplied with food and water. In the refreshment areas, plastic cups will not be available, Participants will use their personal glass. Drinking directly from the organization’s bottles or bins is not permitted.

Athletes must throw the waste into the bins provided by the organization. For safety reasons, it is not allowed to leave the route. The competitor who leaves the marked paths is no longer under the responsibility of the organization. The race will take place in any weather condition that does not put the safety of the participants at serious risk. The timetable program may undergo, based on contingent situations, variations that will be communicated during the briefing.

Competitors are obliged to provide any assistance to participants in difficulty.

The race-bib must be worn on the chest or stomach and be permanently and completely visible throughout the totality of the race. It must always be placed on top of all clothing and can in no case be positioned on a leg or backpack. The name and partner’s logos must not be either modified or hidden.

It is forbidden to be accompanied on the course by a person who is not properly registered. For safety reasons the use of headphones for listening to i-pods or similar devices is not permitted. The organization reserves the right to impose mandatory equipment. For each race will be set a maximum time which will run from the official start. Athletes who will finish the race beyond this limit, even if they will be included in the ranking, will have attributed only 0.5 points and will not take part in awarding ceremony.

Those who believe that they are unable to complete the race within the maximum time can request, where applicable, early departure.

Since the early departure is an option created to favor slow athletes, the use of it by faster athletes who have no real need of it, is to be considered unfair to other athletes of equal value and, moreover , complicates the work of the organizers. To discourage therefore those who make improper use of them, it is not allowed to those who start early, to cross the finish line before the winner (man / woman). Athletes who choose to start early and will cross the finish line before the winner (man / woman), will receive a time equal to that achieved by the first + a time equal to the advance + 15 ’.

In the sections where the route crosses the road, which will not be closed to vehicular traffic, competitors are required to respect the traffic regulations.
