Shortly about course

The course is designed that runner has to be almost independent, so call semi-autonomy. The time spent (irrelevant talk about distance) between check points can be long. Only in CP can gain liquid and energy for next stage, there are not any sources in mountains. There will not be drop bag CP on course and you have to finish with gear which you start.

Participants has to follow strictly mandatory equipment and certain rules otherwise may be disqualified. Before and during the event will be random check of your gear, if you will miss any mandatory equipment you may not continue without it. You can let any garbage in CP, but don’t pollute on course.

賽道設計是主要目的是讓跑者能獨立自主,所以稱為半自助。檢查站與檢查站之間是相距時間非常長(不考量距離的話)。在山上沒有任何的資源,只有在檢查站會有液體飲料及能量補給,在檢查站無背包寄放處,必須從起點揹自身的裝備跑完全程。

參賽者必須嚴格遵守強制性裝備,否則喪失參賽資格,賽前或在任何一個檢查站裡,主辦單位會隨機的抽查裝備,如果缺少任何一件強制性裝備,將無法繼續賽程,主辦單位有權取消資格。途中如產生任何垃圾,請留置檢查站,請勿恣意丟棄山林中污染環境。
