Art. 10 Pettoral

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 Control posts and refuelling posts

Only runners with a clearly visible bib have access to refuelling points.
On the www.beccadinona.it website is published the map of the route that will identify the refreshments (where only drinks will be available), the control point and the rescue points. For the Aosta-Becca di Nona there is a single control post located together with the intermediate in Comboé. "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. 12 Maximum authorised time and time barriers

The maximum time of the Aosta – Becca di Nona test, for the entire route, is set at 4 h.

Competitors who will pass through Comboé beyond the time limit of 2h 20' will be stopped and included in the Aosta – Comboé ranking, these competitors will therefore have the right to withdraw the finisher gadget intended for The Aosta-Comboé and not that of the Aosta-Becca di Nona. The competitor who wants to continue without a bib, out of the race, will do so assuming all responsibility for the consequences that could derive 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 entire route, is set at 3h 30'.

Art. 14 Abandonments and returns

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. 15 Penalties and 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.
