One hour for every missing part of the mandatory equipment. A competitor may wear the equipment or has it stowed in a backpack (bag …).

In the case of a bad weather forecast, the organizer retains the right to impose additional mandatory equipment for the safety of the runners not later than one day before the event.

Equipment transition (only UTVV100 Miles and UTVV 100)

Upon receipt of BIB numbers the runners can get 3 designated baggs for personal equipment.

The runners can retrieve a bag with personal equipment

  1. at the checkpoint at the middle of the UTVV 100 Miles track in Miren (S6 - 84 km ) - 1.trasition bag (100 miles)
  2. at the checkpoint at the middle of the UTVV 100 track on Preserje (S8 - 51 km) - 1. transition bag (100 km)
  3. at the checkpoint in Podnanos, before Nanos uphill (S11 - 136 km / 87.5 km) - 2. transition bag
  4. at the finish line.

The bag must be submitted at start area in Ajdovščina on Saturday one hour before the start or at the collections of BIB numbers at Kamp Tura.

The 2 bag is crucial for your safety. It is mandatory that it includes proper equipment for the possible night with rain, strong wind and temperatures below zero on an open terrain in the mountains. Without proper equipment at Nanos in the night it is very hard to finish the race.

The organizer will transfer the bags with personal equipment to Batuje, Lovska hunting hut and/or to the finish line.
