Clarification:

Headtorch + additional batteries (additional batteries may be only from the control point in Zalesie for the distance of 100 miles) – additional batteries only apply to running over a distance of 100 miles. Runners of this distance must take an additional headtorch to the dropbag point in Zalesie, each runner of the 100 mile race should have additional batteries for the headtorch (batteries, or other additional charging). Some of you will be running in nightly conditions and from Friday to Saturday and Saturday night.

 

Bandana – from our experience in ultra marathons we know that it is better to have a bandana on the route, but we will allow: bandana or a hat.

    1. Route marking:
  • white/red tape (From Zalesie the tape will be reflective).
  • green paint (in some places, sharp orange colour)
  • paper marking on trees – poles (they will be visible)

There are situations where the locals or other people just pull the tapes off – that’s why you should look at the gps tracker, because despite the fact that we will probably mark it exactly 3-4 days, it does not mean that all the tapes will survive. As much as possible, we will try to mark fragments of tarmac and stones – but be vigilant!

10 mile route– we will check it before the start – there should be no problems.

Gpx tracker has been prepared by us on the basis of the route we have run it – however, as this equipment, sometimes it may have a slight detachment.

Dropbag – due to the fact that on the first part you will run a bit on the grass, we do not want your feet to get slaughtered at the beginning of the race, hence we will make a mini-pier in Łukowica (small sack: shoes, socks or something to change into) – for the distance of 100 I 40 miles. We invite you to take advantage of this change, because the weather is going to be promising with the presence of rain, so it’s not worth taking a risk.

In addition to the control and refreshment points, there will be 2 or 3 control points located on the route (no food) – no presence at control / control and nutrition points is disqualification .Each runner moves along the route designated by the organizer.

 

 

It is permissible to help third parties only at the control / refreshment points.The help of third parties outside the control / refreshment points may result in the runner being disqualified.
