For 81K race, we advise participants to have completed at least one TRAIL race on mountain terrain of about 40 Km and 2.500m D+.

Every participant must be aware of chosen race length and specific terrain where the race takes place, be well trained and have acquired before the race, a full capacity of self-autonomy in a alpine mountain environment, in particular:

  • Be able to eventually face weather conditions that could become difficult. Alpine environment conditions can change fast and drastically, so this is an aspect that cannot be underestimated; therefore, participants must be able to face extreme weather conditions as intense cold/hot, snow or rain, strong wind etc.
  • Be able to manage eventual physical/psychological problems connected to high level of tiredness, stomach problems, muscular/articular pain, small wounds, starvation/dehydration feelings etc.
  • Be conscious that the OC role is not helping or assisting the participant to complete the race.
