In order to qualify, participants must complete the entire route and pass through all the checkpoints established by the organisers. It is the responsibility of each runner to follow the route marked. Failure to do so will result in penalty or disqualification. During the race, participants must follow the instructions of the checkpoint staff at all times.
Bibs will be collected on the day before the race at the place and time indicated by the organisers and on presentation of official identification documents. IT IS NOT POSSIBLE TO COLLECT BIBS ON THE DAY OF THE RACE. Participants must wear the bib provided by the organisers at all times and it must be visible AT THE FRONT, to facilitate the job of the checkpoint staff. Bibs must not be trimmed, folded or altered. Telephone numbers for the Organisation Centre and the event Emergency services are printed on the bibs.
The maximum time to complete the K42 is 8.5 hours. Cut-off times have been established as follows.
There are no cut-off times for the K21.

14. Dropping out.
If a runner drops out of the race, he or she MUST notify the Organisers at the closest checkpoint available or call the Organisation Centre using the telephone number printed on the bibs.

For the same reason the organisers do not provide cups at the refreshment points. Participants must use their own cup, flask or hydration pack. Runners using Walking Sticks can only do so with rubber tips.
The event organisers guarantee the safety of the participants by deploying the necessary measures and staff. This includes the presence of official, marked vehicles, both the organisers’ and security vehicles. Medical staff and ambulances will be available at strategic points along the route in order to be able to intervene as necessary.
There will be staff at the checkpoints to ensure the safety of the runners. The checkpoint staff have the authority to give participants instructions at any time, in the event of danger, a change in the route, an accident or in the event of a participant dropping out.
18. The event.
In the event of bad weather conditions, for security reasons or for other cause of force majeure, the event may be interrupted, the route may be altered or the time limits may be changed. If the event is brought to a halt, it will be classified according to the order and arrival times at that moment or, if that’s not possible, at the last completed checkpoint.
Participants take part at their own risk. It is their decision to start and complete the race. It is the responsibility of each participant to be physically prepared to take part in the event. Medical staff will have the authority to remove bibs from any runners whose health they consider to be at risk. Participants indemnify the organisers from any claims or lawsuits based on alleged actions or non-actions of participants or others acting on their behalf. As well as from claims arising from any damages that maybe caused to them or their kit. Participants must sign the required documents that state this section of the regulations more clearly.
