4. TECHNICAL VERIFICATIONS AND RECEPTION OF PARTICIPANTS

The technical controls and the reception of runners will take place on the 24th at the concentration hotel. All participants must present themselves autonomously to the organization during the day. It is obligatory to spend the first night in the concentration hotel.

Only one suitcase per runner will be admitted.

4.2 Obligatory material control

For safety reasons, it is essential to present all the obligatory equipment. Otherwise, a penalty will be imposed according to the attached penalty table. This material must be presented on the day of the checks and provided that the organisation requests it. During the stages there may be random checks of compulsory material. In no case will the organization take charge of any of the personal material elements abandoned by the participants during the course of the stages.

4.3 Medical Certificate,

The NO presentation of the medical certificate, will suppose the "NO" participation in the race. The medical certificate, must be made with the document provided by the organization through the web of the race, in the corresponding section (download medical certificate).

4.4 Delivery of bibs.

The Organization will provide two numbered numbers, one front and one back, which must be located in the backpack. In both cases, they must be clearly visible at all times and must not be totally or partially covered or wrinkled by any element of the equipment (backpack straps, compensation, windbreaks, etc.) in such a way that it is clearly visible and identifiable.


5. OUTPUT PROTOCOL

The stage departures will be done in a group. In the second stage, and depending on the times made in the first, you can make two starts with an hour difference between the two. In the case that there are two departures, the participants who depart in the first group (1 hour before) will be those designated by time by the organization. All participants must pass through the exit controllers. The presence in the starting area must be 15 minutes before the start of the stage. The starting times for each stage are indicated in the race programme. Every rider must take the start only and exclusively at the time indicated by the Organization, which may be modified for logistical or security reasons.


6. PROVISIONING

The Organization is responsible for the provisioning of food and liquid before and after the stage. During the course of the stage, liquid and light solid refreshments, i.e. light foods such as fruit and nuts, will also be available at the transit controls. It is important for each runner to provide the energetic food for each stage.


7. MAXIMUM TIME OF THE STAGES

Each stage has a maximum time to cover it, which will vary depending on the route. Daily during the briefing before the start, the cut-off times will be indicated, both for the first pass control and the remaining ones, as well as the maximum time for the end of the stage. In the event of not doing so or not passing within the maximum time foreseen, the rider will be eliminated and will be withdrawn from the race by the organisers.

Any rider who has not passed through the control points or the end of the stage within the established maximum time or who abandons the stage, may take the start the following day, with the prior authorisation of the medical team and the race direction, although he will no longer score for the final general classification.

If such a situation of abandonment or out of control entry occurs again in the next stage, the rider shall definitively abandon the race.


8. RACE

The runners must follow the route established in each stage, it is cause for disqualification not to do so.

The organization of BVR reserves the right to modify the regulations, route layout, mileage of stages, development area and destination, for reasons of force majeure -whether meteorological, security or any other nature- beyond their control and that may compromise both the safety of runners and the Organization or the proper development of the test. The stages will have the following mileage and positive unevenness:

9. MARKING AND CONTROL POSTS

Participants in the BVR must follow the route marked and established for each stage. The terrain will be duly marked so that all participants can stay in line without difficulty.

The marking of the route will be done by means of clearly visible marks every 100 meters.

Although the route is marked it is obligatory for all runners to carry a GPS device with the Trak of the recorded route.

The CP (Controls of passage) will be distributed on the axis of each one of the stages. Their number will vary depending on the distance of the stage and they are obligatory places of passage and marking for each one of the participants, under penalty of penalty and/or disqualification. These positions allow the race controllers to record the passage time of each participant and ensure the supply of solid and liquid...

During the briefing prior to the start of the stage, the cut-off times of the passing controls and the maximum arrival time at the end of the stage will be indicated. The use of any means of transport will result in immediate disqualification.


10. PARTICIPANT'S TIME

The timekeeping team will record the daily time of each participant, which will be measured in hours, minutes and seconds.

10.1 Individual Classification.

The individual classification of the stage is calculated with the sum of the time made and any penalties received. The general classification is calculated with the sum of the times obtained in each stage.

10.2 Team classification

The general classification will be obtained with the sum of the times obtained by the team in each stage, always counting the time of arrival of the second runner.


11. MEDICAL TEAM

A medical team will be present at the test. Their presence will be permanent at the start and finish of the stage. Also, other members of the medical team will be in some controls of passage or on the route. If necessary, they will intervene on the route although it is important to bear in mind the difficulties that this situation can cause, due to the difficulty of access in many points of the route. The medical services will be authorised to withdraw from the race any participant who is unable to continue, at their discretion, for strictly medical reasons.

 

12. ABANDONMENT

The BVR is a test with an "adventure" component and although it takes place in a relatively populated environment, it is important to bear in mind the difficulties that can arise from the evacuation of a runner. Therefore, abandonment must follow a scrupulous protocol that facilitates any procedure after abandonment, especially centred on the safety of the runner.

First of all, the participant and the medical team, if necessary, must evaluate the conditions of an objectively sensitive abandonment runner before starting the race.

No participant may leave the race without prior notice to the Organization, under penalty of having to pay all search costs.

In case the abandonment occurs during the development of the race, the runner must communicate it personally in a CP (control of passage) to a race controller. That is to say, in no case is it allowed to leave out of a passing control (CP).

If the abandonment is not for urgent medical reasons requiring immediate medical evacuation, the participant, whenever possible, must reach the end of the stage or the next checkpoint by his own means, naturally accompanied by a team from the Organization.

If you wish to continue in the race you will be able to take the start on the following day and following days, after verification of your condition by the medical team, although you will no longer score for the final general classification, and provided that "NO" repeats this situation, which would force you to leave the race definitively.

If the abandonment is definitive, the rider, depending on his condition, evaluated by the medical team, and the area where the abandonment occurs, will be accompanied or transported to the end of the race.

The means used for this evacuation may vary depending on the condition of the runner, the location of the abandonment and the means available.

 

13. COMPULSORY MATERIAL OF THE PARTICIPANTS

Runners must take into account the team to be chosen given the thermal characteristics of the area, as well as the consequences derived from this in terms of weight. The obligatory equipment must be shown to the race controllers or those in charge of organisation, both during the technical controls and during the race on demand.

The list of obligatory material can be modified by the organization depending on the weather forecast. In principle this is the list of obligatory material.

COMPULSORY EQUIPMENT

● Backpack

● Drums or water containers with a total volume of at least one litre.

● Glass or container to drink at the refreshment posts (for environmental reasons, and to reduce plastic waste, no plastic cups will be offered at the refreshment posts, each runner must bring their own)

● (stage 2) Headlamp + spare batteries, minimum recommended 150 lumens

● GPS with loaded tracks of the different stages

● Whistle

● Survival blanket

● Passport

● Supplementary solid food

 

15. ECOLOGY AND THE HUMAN ENVIRONMENT

One of the main premises and backbone of the race is respect for the natural and human environment, an essential factor and one of the most important for the Organization. Any behavior objectively harmful to the human or natural environment, as well as the lack of scrupulous respect for the customs of the inhabitants of the area or unsportsmanlike behavior in relation to other participants in the race, will be severely penalized, even reaching the disqualification of race.
