Safety and medical assistance
Any runner who has difficulties or is seriously injured may ask for help:
• by visiting a lab
• by asking other runners to visit a lab and to provide help.
Each runner must help another participant in danger and notify somebody of the organization team.
Do not forget that various circumstances that are connected with the environment and the competition may delay the arrival of the aid. In this case, your safety may depend on the things you carry with you.
Rescue workers are entitled to:
• Participants who are unable to continue the competition to stop them(from deleting the starting number)
• Participants who are in danger of evacuating with the means they consider appropriate
• To include participants in a hospital if their condition requires them. The costs for the use of special evacuating agents must be worne by the person concerned. It is the task of the evacuee to submit a request for reimbursement of costs at his accident insurance company.

Competition and return transport
A participant may, except in the case of injury, terminate the competition only at control points. In this case, he must inform the persons in charge of the organization who depreciate the start number.
The participant retains his invalid start number because it allows him to use and access to help items and food.
The return transport is decided together with the person responsible for the organization and is only possible at certain labs / control points.
In the case of bad weather, the race office will ensure the return of the participants as quickly as possible.
If a participant gives up the race he or she is responsible to announce this to a person of the organization. The participant is no longer under the control of the organizer from this point onwards.

Cancellation of the race
If, for any reason, the event is canceled more than 10 days before the scheduled start, part of the entry fee will be refunded. The amount depends on the organizer to keep the funds already used for the organization. If, for any reason, the event is canceled less than 10 days before the start or the competition is canceled, a reimbursement of the nominal fee is excluded.
