Rules

Important rules:

  • The route is not marked, except in the immediate vicinity of the start / finish, around and at the mouth of the river. Outside the marked sections, follow the coastline, not more than 15 meters from the coast;
  • The mouth of the Kamchia River crosses a marked ford, located shortly after the inflow of the river into the sea. The passage is watched by a team of lifeguards. Those who do not wish to cross the mouth wading can use the water wheels and / or boats provided by the organizers, but will also go through an additional obstacle that will slow them down. If conditions (high river level, high currents, high sea waves or other) do not allow the mouth to bewaded, the organizers will provide additional vessels for crossing the river;
  • The route can be run with or without shoes;
  • The route is two-way - going and returning. There are two checkpoints and checkpoints along the route - the fifth and 10.55 kilometers. The first point is the point from which the participants of 10 kilometers return. Participants in the half marathon distance pass through the first point and return from the second point;
  • Registration and bibs are individual and cannot be assigned;
  • It is strictly forbidden to dispose of any rubbish along the route, except for the designated places in the areas of the Aid stations and the start / finish line;
  • Children between the ages of 9 and 18 can be registered as accompanied by a parent / guardian or a parent-authorized trainer. In this case, the parent or the authorized trainer signs a special declaration after receiving the bib. You can download the declaration from here. Accompanied participants and accompanying person move together and cross the river with only a water wheel. To register an accompanying participant, select "Add Accompanied Participant" at the time of enrollment. The time of escort is measured by only one participant;

Equipment: Each competitor must bring a water tank to use at the Aid stations. There are no other requirements except for the possibility to attach the bib.

Timing:

Timing is done with RFID chips attached to the bibs, and for triathlon with chips attached to the ankle.

Time limits for finishing are:

  • 4:00 hours for 21.1 km.
  • 3:30 hours for 10 km. 

Recommendations:

• It is advisable to take out insurance and carry out a pre-competitive check-up (including pulse and blood pressure measurement) not earlier than 3 days before the race;

• Try to run on the hardest part of the strip, which is usually closest to the water;

• If you plan to run barefoot, it is a good idea to prepare in advance with training.

Preliminary refusal of participation, refund and change of the distance:

• The system allows a participant to opt out and receive a part of their fee if this occurs within a specified period before the start day. As the start approaches, the part that can be restored decreases;

• Before closing the site registration, it is possible to change the distance for which an additional minimum fee is charged.
