We do not request a health certificate or equivalent to start the race. Each runner participates at his own risk.
The runner is responsible for navigating right along the track. If the runner differs from the specified course in such a way that this has gained an advantage, the runner will be fined a punishment in the form of a time extension.
If the runner has otherwise attempted to gain an advantage in an unauthorized manner, the corresponding time extensions will be added. Multiple violations will lead to disqualification.
