Participation right:

The participating runner takes absolute personal responsibility for undergoing a cardiological check-up and all the necessary medical examinations . The organisers have no liability for any incidents during the event, concerning health issues, due to lack of a preventive medical check-up. All participants are highly advised to have been recently subjected to a medical examination. No medical assurance will be asked, since all participants compete on their own responsibility and minors on the responsibility of their guardians. As far as the Health and Safety Protocols is concerned, there will be announcements before the implementation of the event. A vehicle will escort the last runners, in order to collect anyone who wishes to quit.
