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 website www.beccadinona.it The map of the route is published, which identifies the refreshment points (where only drinks will be available), the control point and the rescue points. For the Aosta-Becca di Nona there will be a single checkpoint located together with the intermediate one 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.

Competitors who will pass through Comboé beyond the time limit of 2h 20’ they will be stopped and included in the Aosta ranking – Comboé, these competitors will therefore have the right to collect the finisher's gadget intended for Aosta-Comboé and not that of Aosta-Becca di Nona. The competitor who wishes to continue without a bib, out of the race, will do so assuming all responsibility for the consequences that may derive from him.

In case of bad weather conditions and/or for safety reasons, the organization reserves the right to cancel the race, suspend the race in progress, delay the start, change the route or modify the time barriers.

The maximum time of the Aosta test – Comboè, for the entire route, is set in 3h 30'.

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.
