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.

Competitors are surveyed in one place. Only visible bib runners have access to the refuelling posts.
On the www.beccadinona.it website is published the route map that will identify the refreshments (where only drinks will be available), the control point 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.

The maximum time of the Aosta – Nona Becca test, for the entirety of the route, is set in 4 hours.

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.
