It is NOT ADVISED for runners to listen to any kind of audio or playback device that diminishes the external sounds by inserting them into both ears at the same time while running.

At the race, the cyclists and motorcycle organizers work in the field, and if necessary, the ambulance cars are also present.

The headphones suppress external noises, thus hindering the runner from obstructing the fellow runners and the organizing team carrying out their duties, including the medical team.

Please wear your race bib on the front of your clothing, ensuring it is visible at all times, and do not fold it. Make sure to securely attach your race bib using the safety pins provided in your race packet or available at the registration desks.

If the pace of the last runner falls below the pacemaker’s pace, they will be required to board the sweep bus. Their race bib will be marked, and they will not be permitted to enter the finish area.

Participating in the race on inline skates, cycling, running without a race bib, or running with a dog is not allowed. There is no provision for cycling escorts during the race.

  • A competitor who folds their race bib, obscures it, or fails to wear it visibly during the race may receive a 10-minute time penalty.

  • A competitor can be disqualified if they repeatedly violate the race bib wearing rule, despite multiple warnings. Disqualification can also occur if a competitor fails to complete the full designated distance as determined by the race organizers or if they inaccurately or incompletely fill out the registration form with incorrect or missing information. Additionally, improper use of the timing chip can also lead to disqualification.
