Article 7. REGISTRATION

For reasons of safety, respect for the environment and respect for runners, it is necessary to limit the number of bibs. All pre-registrations and registrations will be done exclusively by completing the form via Internet.

In this edition the bulk of the bibs is covered by the entries of the previous editions postponed by health situation reasons. Vacancies shall be filled as follows:

  • Penyagolosa Trails® MiM®: Only those pre-registered in the last lottery who have not had the option to enter have the option to confirm their bib in a direct registration system, until available vacancies will be complete
  • Penyagolosa Trails®CSP®: Because all pre-registered in the last lottery already had the option to get a bib, a system of direct registration is established until the available vacancies are filled.The confirmation period of the registration will be from 19:00 on 07/19/2021 until 19:00 on 07/31/2021.
    Since 2015, there has been no waiting list. Given the experience of previous years, most cancellations occur as lateas possible and it is not reasonable to consider participating in a long-distance race without adequate preparation.Therefore, registrations will be managed through overbooking, that is to say, when registration closes, more runners than slots available will be registered because cancellations are anticipated. Thus, all runners will have the same time to properly prepare.Then, organizers will then reserve an amount of slots for:
  • Clubs and Sponsors: for the teams of our partner clubs and official sponsors.
  • Series and international participants: this consideration will be strictly applied and limited to:
    • Runnersdesignatedby Ultra-TrailWorldTour®.
    • Minimal representation of each country from the list of pre-registrants.
Article 8. ACCEPTANCE OF THE EVENT RULES AND ETHICS

Penyagolosa Trails® subscribes to a philosophy that combines outdoor sport with respect for nature. For this reason, we invite all runners to share our philosophy and to contribute – through their eco-friendly behavior – to maintaining the natural environment in the places where the race is held.

Part of the route runs along paths and trails of the Penyagolosa Natural Park. Participants in these races know very well that the mountain is a fragile ecosystem that must be preserved. Therefore, organizers have as their aim an eco- friendly race that shows maximum respect to the mountain environment. The race’s objective is to have zero impact on the natural environment, and to increase the awareness of all participants and fans for protecting this exceptional environment. For this reason, organizers, in addition to strictly complying with the norms of the Penyagolosa Natural Park, propose:

  • Preventing soil erosion. It is forbidden to use shortcuts off of marked roads and paths – with special attention to the section of the route from Les Useres to Sant Joan de Penyagolosa, which runs through Camí dels Pelegrins de Les Useres.
  • Limiting waste. Organizers encourage runners to bring their own beverage containers to be used in aid stations.
  • Waste management:
    In addition, the use of paths and dirt roads located on privately-owned land is regulated by decrees 49/2006 and 98/1996, which state that: “People passing through the property for any purpose can only do so with the express consent of the land owners and that equally, sports activities that run throughsaidforestlandsareprohibitedexceptforthosethatarepartofeventsauthorizedbytheappointedgeneralmanagement”.
Article 9. EQUIPMENT

Organizers recommend proper planning of race equipment based on competitors’ abilities, the weather, estimated race time and other variables that may compromise competitors’ safety. Each participant must be fully aware of the race’s length and difficulty, which can increase at night, under possible climatic conditions: heat, cold, rain and wind. Therefore, competitors should make sure that clothing, footwear, as well as physical health, are appropriate to complete the race. All participants are obliged to carry the following equipment, which will be checked at the start and can be checked again at any other point during the race.

 

Organizers may add some type of mandatory equipment not included in this section. In such case, such equipment requirement will be properly communicated in advance to race participants via the website or by e-mail.
