To participate in the Ultra Trail Dinarides, particularly the KING'S and KNIGHT'S races, it is essential:

 

  • To be completely aware of the length and specificity of the event and to be perfectly prepared for it
  • To have acquired, previous to the race, real capacity of personal autonomy in the mountains allowing for the management of potential problems induced by this type of event, and notably:

 

  • To know how to confront, without outside help, climatic conditions which could be very difficult to deal with at altitude (night, wind, cold, fog, rain or snow)
  •  To know how to manage, including when one is isolated, physical or mental problems arising from great fatigue, digestive problems, muscle or articular pains, small wounds…
  •  To be completely conscious that the organization’s role is not to help a runner manage these problems
  • To be completely aware that for such an activity in the mountains safety depends upon the runner’s capacity to adapt to the problems encountered or foreseen
  • To inform and to sensitize the members of the runner’s entourage towards the respect of nature, people and the regulations of the race
  • To accept to receive newsletters providing information about the event

The race will be conducted based on teh principal of semy-autonomy. All races of The Ultra Trail DInarides event take place in one single stage, at an undefined pace, within the time limits specified for each race. Semi-autonomy is defined as having the capacity to be autonomous between two refreshments posts, refering to food and drinks, equipment, and safety, allowing for adapting to any problems encountered or foreseen (bad weather, physical problems, injury…)

 

This principle implies the following rules:

  1. Each runner must have with them throughout the duration of the race the totality of their mandatory equipment. At any moment of the race, the equipment can be checked by the race officials. The runner is obliged to submit to these checks in good faith, at the risk of exclusion from the race.
  2. The refreshment posts supply drinks and food may only be consumed at the refreshment post. The organization only supplies still water or energizing drink for filling water bottles or hydration packs. When leaving the aid station, the runners should take care to ensure they have the quantity of drink and food which is necessary to keep them going until the following aid station.
  3. Personal assistance and company is tolerated exclusively at certain aid stations (*), in the zone specifically reserved for this use. Assistance can only be given by one person, without specific equipment other than a bag with a maximum volume of 30 liters. Assistance given by a team of professionals, or any medic or paramedic, is strictly forbidden. The rest of the refreshment post is strictly reserved for the runners.
  4. It is forbidden to accompany or be accompanied along any part the race route by a person not registered for the race, outside of the tolerance zones which are clearly marked in the

 

(*) Personal assistance is tolerated at the following aid stations: Brezovac, Cetina river source, sv. Jakov, Korita

 

It is forbidden at all other refreshment posts, as well as at any other point of the race route.

In order to ensure their security and the good progress of each event, each participant must have at their disposal the all the mandatory equipment on the list, detailed below.

The “hot-weather”, “cold-weather” kits are integrally a part of the obligatory equipment. According to the weather conditions, the organizers can activate a kit and inform each participant before the opening of the race-bib distribution for their race. Each participant must, therefore, present their mandatory equipment, including the kit activated by the organizers, in order to retrieve their race-bib, and agree to keep it with them throughout the event.

It is important to note that the material imposed by the organizers is a vital minimum which each trail-runner must adapt in function to their own capacities. In particular, they must not choose the lightest weight clothing possible in order to gain a few grams but opt for clothing which really offers good protection in the mountains against the cold, wind and snow, which therefore give better security and better performance.

  • It is imperative that you follow the paths as they are way-marked, without short-cutting them.
  • No disposable plastic dishes (cutlery, cups, bowls) will be distributed at the aid stations. This is to reduce the plastic usage by runners, as well as by the volunteers of the 100 Miles of Istria. Instead of the plastic utensils, the organizer will provide wooden or paper ones.
