The organizer recommends that everyone avoid strenuous efforts for which they are not physically prepared. Make wise choices regarding the distance you want to cover and/or the pace you want to impose on your body.

If you want to perform sports at a high intensity, you should have yourself checked annually by a (sports) doctor. The presentation of medical certificates is not mandatory.

It is up to the athlete to decide how to deal with the information provided during a medical check-up.

The organizer bears no responsibility in this regard.

Do you feel sick, cough, sneeze or have a fever? Given the current health situation, we advise you to stay at home and not come to the event.
