1.1. The route of the run will be secured by the police, civil guards and the organisers.

The route of the race will not be fully closed to traffic, therefore each runner must keep to the designated route at all times.

At junctions and pedestrian crossings traffic will be stopped while runners pass through. Cones will be placed out on pavements and bicycle paths to assist the runners to proceed.

The lead vehicle will drive ahead of the front runners. The route will be secured between the lead vehicle in the front and the sweep vehicle at the rear.

It is forbidden to reduce the size of the race number, to bend, twist or fold it, to cover parts of it, or to place additional text or logos on it. When securing your race numbers in place, make sure that the timing chip attached to its backside is not damaged by the safety pin.
