Limited number of participants
This year, the number of participants is limited because of the capacity of certain locations. Accordingly, we allow a maximum of 300 accepted participants. If you register, but do not pay your participation costs, you may be left outside of the 300-person limit and we will have to cancel your registration. Therefore we ask you to pay your participation costs as soon as possible after registration in order to secure your participation. If the limit is reached earlier, registration will be closed before the registration deadline.
What will be provided for the participants?
Start kit contents: bib, map and memorial T-shirt if requested.
Prizes: the participants in places 1–3 in each individual category, as well as the teams in places 1-3 in the relay competition will be rewarded with medals and diplomas. All other participants will receive (smaller) medals and participation diplomas. The first three competitors in the overall race for men, respectively women will receive trophies as well. If any race category has less than 3 participants, the category will be merged with the previous one (lower age group).
The participants will receive energizing food (apple, banana, muesli bar, wafer bar, grape-sugar) at CP 3 and 7 (Gârbău Road, Jebucu/Zsobok), and sandwiches (bread and dripping, zacusca, jam) at CP 4 (Dumbrava/Gyerővásárhely).
At the FINISH, at the Szentimrei Villa, the Szentimrei Foundation will invite all participants to a bowl of warm meal (cornmeal porridge with sour cream, cheese and cracklings) (after 2.00 PM).
Out of consideration for the environment, single-use cups will not be available at the checkpoints; please bring your own bottle/cup.
If requested, the organizers can transfer the luggage of the participants (1 package per participant), free of charge, from the start location to the finish location, where they can be collected from the finish office. Luggage handed in for transfer must bear a ticket with the name and phone number of the participant. The organizers do not assume any responsibility for any valuables placed in the luggage.

The mountain rescue service (Salvamont) has been notified about the tours. However, the participants should be aware that on certain sections it can take some time for the help to arrive. Everyone is responsible for their own safety and, if needed, should help other participants according to their abilities. For this reason, we ask all participants to bring with them a small first-aid kit, with the following recommended content: band aid, disinfectant (hydrogen-peroxide, Rivanol solution, Betadine), Magnesium tablets, bandage material.
