Third group: starting at 6.40 pm, maximum time to complete the route: 70 minutes
6. Registration costs 15 euros, of which 10 euros corresponds to the registration fee and 5 euros will be donated to the Marató de TV3, devoted this year to the fight against Covid-19 (more information in the ‘Solidarity Race’ section of the website). Registration will only be valid once payment has been made.
If the race is suspended on the grounds of health, safety or force majeure causes, the registration fee of 10 euros will be refunded. The donation of 5 euros will be retained and will go to the Marató de TV3.
7. Using a chip is obligatory. Runners who do not own a (yellow) chip must acquire a single-use chip, at a cost of two euros (VAT included), or their own chip to keep for eight euros (VAT included). (see the conditions and promotions in the "Registration" section).
8. If a runner does not take part in the race, neither the registration fee nor the donation or the cost of renting the white chip will be refunded.
9. The registration process will conclude when the total available number of bibs has been reached.
10. The use of face masks is obligatory in all race areas, except while participants are running as they warm up or compete, when they will NOT be required to wear them.
Nobody will be allowed to access the starting box without a face mask, which runners can remove as they go over the start line. Once the race begins, throwing face masks on the ground is not permitted, neither at the beginning nor during the race. Runners will have to keep their face masks, dispose of them in the right bins at the finish line and receive a new one.
11. The organisers may change the route for the race in circumstances beyond their control or due to force majeure causes.
12. The starting groups are designed according to runners’ accredited times for a distance of 10 km. This means participants will run alongside others with similar times.
13. The only vehicles which will be able to follow the race will be those expressly authorised by the organisers.
14. Number bibs and chips must be collected on the days and at the times established by the organisers. Access to collect number bibs outside the chosen times will not be allowed, and only the person picking up the bib will be allowed to access the premises, with no other people accompanying them. The day and the timeslot for picking up the bib should be specified when registering. Runners should choose the size of the Adidas shirt (one size smaller than usual is recommended). When sizes run out, they will become unavailable for runners to choose. Exchanges will not be possible. See the registration section. It is important to check the shirt size, as it is very different to previous editions.
15. Failure to pick up number bibs and runners’ bags on the established days means the participant renounces their place. In this case, the registration fee and the cost of the white chip will NOT be refunded.
16. It is obligatory for participants to run the race wearing the number bib on the front of their shirt so that it is visible. Number bibs are personal and non-transferable. The organisers will disqualify any runner without a number bib, or taking part with another person’s bib, with their finishing time to be null and void. The organisers will take legal action against this (an action considered very serious given the current pandemic), as it may hinder traceability in a hypothetical detection of a positive case among runners.
17. In the registration process, participants will have to accept the self-responsibility declaration assuring that they are clear of Covid-19 at that point. In the case of runners getting symptoms or confirmed infections on the day before the race, they must renounce their participation and must not show up at the start line.
18. For safety reasons, we recommend you fill in the personal details on the back of the number bib. The phone number you provide should be for a third party and not the person running.
19. Runners are responsible for any damage they may cause to themselves or to third parties. The organisers do not take any responsibility.
20. Participants can take part in a wheelchair or an adapted athletics chair during the timeslot allocated for this category. Participation is not permitted in categories which do not correspond to this event, such as skateboards, skates, bicycles, tricycles, handbikes, electric wheels etc.
21. Participants are not permitted to take part with children’s pushchairs or pets.
22. Guides accompanying people with visual impairment must register by request with the organisers. They must be duly identified and not use chips. If they wish their finishing time to be registered, this will be done using the same chip worn by the person they are accompanying.
23. Prizes: The only starting group for which prizes will be awarded is the first (in which elite athletes will compete). The first three women and first three men will win prizes based on their actual finishing times, with trophies to be collected after the event finishes. There will also be prizes in categories for people with some sort of disability (wheelchair, visual impairment etc.), provided that at least three sportspeople compete in the same category and were registered properly.
24. The cloakroom service will be available.
25. Participants explicitly allow their name, surname, sex and date of birth to be published in the list of registered runners, as well as their result in the race, according to the established rules.
Registration implies acceptance of these rules and the rules of long distance races by the RFCA. The organisers will have the final decision on any incident not provided for.
26. There will be no refreshment stops along the route of the race. The only point providing liquids will be located just after the finish line.
