Each bib is individually returned to each competitor on the presentation of a photo ID, or to a third person with a special written delegation and including photocopy of the delegate's IDENTITY document. The bib must be worn on the chest or belly and be visible always and in its entirety throughout the race. It must therefore be placed on top of all clothing and in no case fixed elsewhere. Before the start, each runner must be registered, passing through the gates to the closed starting area. The competitor must verify that the registration has taken place at the checkpoints and on arrival. The punching is therefore essential to ascertain the actual presence of the competitor. If the pass is not registered, the costs of finding the runner will be charged to the runner himself.

Art. 11 Chip

The chip will need to be attached to the shoelaces. It will be delivered at the time of the withdrawal of the bib against a deposit of 10 euros that will be returned at the end of the race (at the time of the withdrawal of the race package) at the same time as the return of the chip itself. In the event of damage, the organization does not take responsibility for a possible malfunction. Please keep your chip correctly.

Art. 12 Checkpoints and refueling posts

Competitors are surveyed in one place. Only visible bib runners have access to the refuelling posts.
On the website www.beccadinona.it is published the map of the route that will identify the retori, the checkpoint and the rescue points. "Flying" control points will also be placed. Their location will not be communicated by the organization.
The organization reserves, in its unquestionable judgment, to inhibit the continuation of the competition to individual athletes if it detects dangerous conditions for their health and/or in the absence of safety conditions.

Art. 13 Maximum authorized time and hourly barriers

The maximum time of the Aosta – Nona Becca test, for the entirety of the route, is set in 4 hours. An hourly gate will also be placed, after two hours and winds from departure, in Comboé (after about 1500 meters of difference). Competitors who pass through Comboé over the two-hour and 20-hour time limit will be stopped and placed in the Aosta – Comboé ranking. The competitor who wanted to continue without bib, out of the race, will do so by assuming any responsibility in terms of the consequences that could result from him.
In the event of bad weather and/or safety reasons, the organization reserves the right to suspend the current test, delay departure, vary the route or change the time barriers.
The maximum time of the Aosta – Comboè test, for the entirety of the route, is set at 3.30 hours.

Art. 14 Animal bans

To ensure the best safety conditions for all participants, it is forbidden to compete by pets whether they are on a leash or not. Competitors with pets in tow will automatically be disqualified and considered outside the race, therefore held responsible for any damage done to themselves, to other competitors, to third parties in general.

Art. 15 Leave and return

In the event of abandonment of the ride along the route, the competitor is obliged, as soon as he has the opportunity, to go to the nearest checkpoint to communicate his abandonment by registering. If the runner is not notified of withdrawal and the subsequent start of the runner's research, any resulting expenses will be charged to the runner himself.

Art. 16 Penalties – disqualifications

Controllers on the route are allowed to check for the presence of the mandatory material and in general, compliance with the entire regulation. Please note that in the absence of mandatory material, under the regulation, the runner will be disqualified or will be penalized.
