ITEM 9 – TAG-IN AND STARTING-POINT CHECKS
Each bib is individually assigned to the competitor, and must always be worn above all other clothing on the chest, stomach or thigh, where it must remain easily visible throughout the entire race. The tag-in is the responsibility of each individual participant and you should allow at least 30 minutes before the start of your competition. The race bibs are fitted with a chip which must be handed over at the finishing line (except for the 4km Youth Trail, the 10km food and wine walk and the Nordic walking). Competitors who withdraw during the course of the competition are asked to return their bib fitted with its chip to the volunteers who are stationed along the trail. The cost of the chip equal to 18.00 Euros will be charged if the athlete does not hand over the chip at the end of the race.
ITEM10 – CHECK POINTS AND TIME LIMITS
The checkpoints along the entire trail, where the competitors will be recorded as they pass through, will be decided by the organisation which will implement checks at any point along the trail without prior notification. Only those competitors who have been recorded at every checkpoint shall be included in the rankings and awarded prizes. We therefore remind all athletes to give their race number promptly and clearly when requested to do so by the staff stationed along the route. The rankings will be drawn up by TDS which will manage the timings of all the competitions through the use of the microchip attached to each competitor’s bib. The time limits set by the organisation to be entered in the ranking are as follows:
43km Long Trail: 9 hours
18km Short Trail: 6 hours
ITEM 11 – REFRESHMENTS
1) LONG – SHORT TRAIL – YOUTH TRAIL
The basic criterion of this competition is food-related semi self-sufficiency.
Please refer to the individual sections of the website dedicated to the various distances and information which will be provided to all participants about the location and gate times located at the refreshment points. The refreshment points that will be set up along the route, the location of which will be communicated during the pre-race briefing and can be consulted on-line, will be supplied with drinks and some food. Athletes must therefore independently ensure that they have as much as they believe they will need to go from one refreshment point to another. All rubbish, cups, gels, bars etc. must be thrown away in the specially provided bins available at the refreshment points. Anyone found to be throwing rubbish away outside of the designated containers shall be disqualified.
2) 2 PASSI DI GUSTO (FOOD AND WINE WALK) and NORDIC WALKING
Three refreshment points will be set up about 2-3 km apart on which an aperitif, first and second course and canapés will be served. Please refer to the dedicated section on the website and the communications which will be provided before the start to all the participants about the location and use of the service.

ITEM 13 – COMPETITORS’ BAGS
Bags may be deposited in the start/finish area in a location specifically provided for the purpose. It is the responsibility of every athlete to mark his/her own bag so that he/she recognises it upon arrival. The organisation does not accept any responsibility for the safeguarding of the bags. No complaints in this regard will be accepted. We strongly recommend that no valuable objects should be left inside the bags. A sticker to use for identifying bags can be found inside the athletes’ race packs.
ITEM 14 EURO
Withdrawal is possible at the refreshment points or, alternatively, anywhere the organisation’s staff are present so that the athlete can return the race bib and chip. Every withdrawal must be communicated promptly to race Management. Notification is vital to prevent emergency services from being alerted needlessly.
ITEM 14 bis – DROPPING OUT
Competitors who drop out of the race along the route are OBLIGED to make their way to the closest refreshment point as soon as possible to notify them of their dropping out.
ITEM 15 – SECURITY AND MEDICAL ASSISTANCE
Security and medical assistance shall be provided by the organisation’s volunteers stationed along the route and by authorised personnel. Moreover, emergency services shall be present on the trail in the areas accessible to the organisation’s vehicles. Support is also provided by teams on trials bikes qualified to perform BLS-D first aid. Their presence is a vital safeguard for all athletes in the race. They move along the route without hindering the smooth progress of the race and we ask that their presence be considered as a vital support for safety. The operators have arranged to bring assistance to those who need it, with their own resources or through appointed organisations. The doctors on duty have the incontestable power to stop competitors judged unfit to continue the race, with subsequent disqualification. The race bib shall be removed. Emergency responders are authorised to use their resources to remove competitors judged to be in danger. On pain of disqualification, every athlete is obliged to assist others who may be in difficulty, and to bring the attention of organisation personnel to situations which require emergency intervention or assistance. Any competitor who calls for a doctor or emergency services must respect their authority and agree to comply with their decisions. Access to and the nature of treatment shall be at the discretion of the medical staff. Calling the emergency number provided to the athletes entails an automatic acceptance of the doctor’s and/or the emergency responder’s authority and the obligation to accept their decisions.
ITEM 16 – PERSONAL ASSISTANCE
Competitors may avail of any personal assistance stationed along the route.
ITEM 17 – PENALTIES AND DISQUALIFICATIONS
The organisation’s staff on the trail will be authorised to ensure the regulations are respected in full. Violations encountered by the organisation’s staff or reported by athletes may lead to incontestable disqualification after consideration by the race jury (though in the latter case proof in the form of a photo or video is required). The race jury may declare a competitor disqualified in the case of a serious violation of the regulations, particularly: – bib exchange – failure to pass through a checkpoint – missing out part of the trail – use of transport – failure to assist another competitor in difficulty – discarding your belongings along the trail – pollution or littering of the place by abandoning rubbish along the trail – insults, rude behaviour or threats towards members of the organization or volunteers – refusal to be examined by an organisation doctor at any time during the race – physical and/or mental state deemed to be unsuitable for continuing the race
ITEM 18 – DISPUTES
Disputes will be accepted and taken into consideration if presented in writing within thirty minutes of the posting of the provisional rankings by the organisation, with a payment of 50.00 Euros which will be reimbursed only if the dispute is upheld. It will be the responsibility of the jury to provide a response upholding or rejecting the dispute in question.
ITEM – 19 – CHANGES TO THE ROUTE
The organisation reserves the right to alter, at any time, the route (shortening or even lengthening it) or the positioning of refreshment points, using the dedicated on-site area at the race or the web (in the area reserved for news and/or the trail) to give timely notice of any alterations made in the interests of the well-being of competitors and volunteers and the safety of the race. In the case of adverse weather conditions (thick fog, heavy storms, strong winds) which may put competitors’ safety at risk, the starting time may be postponed or cancelled, the route may be altered or reduced, or the race may terminate at any point along the trail. If an ongoing race is interrupted, the final rankings shall be issued on the basis of the last check conducted during the race. Suspension of a race does not entitle competitors to any reimbursement of their registration fees. All decisions will be taken by the panel of judges and by the staff designated by the heads of the organising committee.
ITEM 20 – INSURANCE
The organisation shall take out civil liability insurance for the entire duration of the competition. Participation in the competition is therefore at the sole responsibility of the competitors, who, upon registering, waive all claims against the organisers in the case of damages and any further consequences which they may incur after the race.
