Bib / race number delivery
The race numbers are specific to the event and numbered according to the criteria of the organizer.
The race numbers can be collected in the days before the race according to the program. Non-resident participants have the opportunity to collect their race numbers on the morning of the race day, if they have confirmed this in advance with the organizer via email.

Participants must follow the marked route.
The timing is carried out by Top Time Eventos and approved by the official competition judges and timekeepers of the FCC.

For the long distance, a time limit of three hours (from the start) is set at the 40-km-checkpoint. Participants who do not pass this checkpoint within the time limit, will be redirected to the finish line and included in the classification of the short distance race.
The cut-off at the finish line for both distances is at 7.30 p.m.
The organizer attaches particular importance to the passing of all participants through all checkpoints.
Participants who are found to have irregularities in this regard can be disqualified.
