Runners with a federation membership are required to compete with the clothing of their clubs otherwise they may be sanctioned.

Disqualified runners shall not be eligible for prizes.

Runners who are not registered or run without a bib or with an unofficial bib for this edition of the trial will not be admitted by the Organization, preventing them from having access to the race in defence of the rights of those runners legally registered.

(1). Given the serious prejudice that this would cause to the Organization and to the other runners in the event of access to the trial infringing the conditions of access established or if any irregularity was committed, the Organization reserves the right to take appropriate measures, in accordance with applicable law. Accordingly, appropriate civil, penal, or administrative actions will be taken to hold the infringer accountable.

Among the irregularities that will lead to the initiation of such actions are:

  • Not being registered for the trial and thus not having a bib/chip to participate in the trial.
  • Running with someone else’s bib/chip (without having officially changed the name or hiding it)
  • Running with a bib/chip other than that officially approved for the trial.
  • Running with a fake bib/chip (photocopied document or that imitates the bib)

The examples listed above are not exhaustive, and there may be other irregularities that may lead to the initiation of legal actions by the Organization.

Both infractors and those collaborating with those irregularities shall be identified as “delinquent runners”.

Those identified as “delinquent runners” by the Organization on the day of the race, will be separated, identified and expelled by the trial security staff in the exercise of their powers, obtaining identification data, photographs, etc., which will be used in order to take the corresponding legal actions.

Should the infraction become known after the trial, appropriate measures shall be taken by the Organization when they become aware of the facts.

“Delinquent runners” will receive notifications and/or order for appearance of the proceedings in which their possible responsibilities will be judged, so that they can be part of the proceedings.

For legal and sport reasons, but especially those concerning security, the bib may not be transferred to another runner without following the process planned for this purpose and without obtaining the agreement of the Organization (see article 10 note (1)). Should the Organization become aware of this circumstance before the trial is held, the bib that has been sold or transferred without authorization will be disqualified, and the participant will not be able to take part in the trial. In addition and given the risk to those who wear a bib without knowledge of the Organization and the distortion that occurs in the classifications, the details of the person who transfers or sells the bib will be noted, preventing their registration in the following 4 years, and communicating these irregularities to other marathons, half-marathons and 10-kilometre races organizations. In the case of athletes who are member of the Royal Spanish Athletics Federation (RFEA) and the Valencian Athletics Federation (FACV), these associations will also be informed of said infractions so that appropriate measures can be taken.

The Organization reserves the right to prevent the future registration and to inform other races of those athletes who are disqualified for not having fully completed the 21,097 km of the course.

12th ARTICLE

13th ARTICLE

The timing will be done by the BIB TAG system of the company MYLAPS/CHIPLEVANTE, with checkpoints at the Start, at the Finish line and also every 5 km. All runners must pass through the checkpoint mats.

The timing chip will be placed on the back of the bibs, protected with a spongy strip. It should not be folded, wet or torn. The chip is for single use only, when the trial finishes it becomes useless. The bib must be worn on the front over the chest to keep it visible.

If after 3 months from the purchase, the person concerned (participating buyer) does not claim it, he/she will automatically lose his/her right to purchase and the product will become property of SANTA POLA C.A., without any right to claim or economic compensation of any kind.
