Participants are responsible for studying the route beforehand. In addition, participants must check if they have been properly registered when they cross the different checkpoints and the finish line.
Any change or modification of the directional signs will be penalized. These signs are set up along the route for the participant’s safety.
In the event of adverse weather conditions, the organizers will establish an alternative course to ensure the participants’ safety.
