Rules and regulations for Skogvokteren Ultra 2024

Version 2: May 15, 2023

These rules and conditions apply to participation in the Skogvokteren Ultra 88k event, organized by Grenland Ultra Runners.

Participation

Participation is at one’s own risk and responsibility. The organizer disclaims any liability for expenses that may arise in case of injury, illness, or other circumstances related to the event.

Participants are obligated to familiarize themselves with, and comply with, all information (written and oral) provided by the organizer.

If another participant encounters an emergency situation, participants are obliged to assist to the best of their ability and report to the organizer.

Participants must follow the designated race course.

Participants must not leave any litter of any kind along the route.

Participants’ names, club affiliation, nationality, and year of birth may be published in result lists and participant lists.

Pictures of participants may be taken during the event. These pictures may be posted on the website and social media.

Registration is binding, and there is no refund of the registration fee. It is possible to transfer registration to another person if you are unable to participate.

The minimum age to participate is 18 years, but it is possible to participate with an adult from the age of 16.

Participants must save the race director’s phone number (Stian: 913 37 510) on the mobile phone carried during the race. The phone must be turned on throughout the race.

The race style is supported, meaning it is allowed to receive food and drink by one’s own crew, but only at the official aid stations.

Pacing (running with someone not participating in the competition) is not allowed.

In case of a DNF (Did Not Finish), participants must report to the organizer immediately.
