RULES

Check our rules and regulations to enjoy a unique experience in your edition of PIRENE 3 DAYS 245K

DAY 1 SWIM

It is compulsory to present the athlete at the briefing (with photo ID).

The athlete must provide a signed Civil Liability Release document. This document can be printed from this race manual.

The athlete is obliged to be present during the briefing in order to be aware of any modification or indication from the organisation.

SWIM

From the pier of the Hotel Terradets, we will start the swimming sector.

The swim consists of a total of 5Km in the Terradets Reservoir (Cellers) in a 2.5Km circuit which will be completed in two complete laps. At the end of the first lap, and in the area indicated by the organization (starting dock) the athlete will be able to refresh himself.

The time to complete this segment will be a MAXIMUM of 3 hours.

It is MANDATORY:

  • The use of safety buoy (each athlete must bring his own).
  • The cap provided by the organisation must be the first one to be seen, in case more than one is used.
  • The use of neoprene is compulsory in water temperatures below 20 degrees. If the water temperature is higher than this, the organisers, with prior notice in the Briefing, will give the possibility of swimming without neoprene.
  • It is forbidden to use gloves, fins or any other garment that may give an advantage over the other athletes.
  • In case of extreme weather conditions, the organisers reserve the right to shorten or eliminate the swimming segment.

In the water area, you will find kayaks to guide you and organisation buoys anchored at strategic points (indicated on the reference map).

The kayak guiding the athlete in first position will have lights on the back of the kayak.

You will also find kayaks that will signal the start and finish area of the swim. In case you feel unwell and consider that you cannot continue with the race, use your arms to signal with your arms. The kayak closest to you will signal the rescue boat.

DAY 1 BIKE

Once the athlete comes out of the water, he/she must change in the area provided for this purpose and get ready for the 71 km cycling circuit.

The cycling circuit will be signposted by the organisers, but it is COMPULSORY to download the route to your mobile device or Garmin.

In the 71km cycling course there will be 1 CHECK-POINT at km 35 where the times of each participant will be taken.

There will be marked all those points that we consider important, such as crossroads or places that create confusion, but we understand that athletes have a mobile device with the downloaded route.

DAY 2 BIKE

In the stages of days 1 and 2, some rules must be followed during the cycling route.

The development of the different stages, their altimetries and GPS files for downloading are available on our website, where the distances and segments to be run each day are described.

Each participant must be familiar with the route of each circuit, being the participant the only responsible for any mistakes that may be made on the incorrect interpretation of the route. All the circuit is with open traffic. Be careful and respect the traffic rules.

On the 127km cycling route there will be 3 CHECK-POINTS at km 43, 77 and 111 where times will be taken from each participant.

It is compulsory for the bike to have a rear light.

It is compulsory to wear a helmet approved by the E.C. during the whole route and suitable shoes.

It is possible to have more than one bicycle and spare wheels.

It is a NO DRAFTING event.

It is compulsory for the athlete to follow the route marked by the organisation, to respect the signalling rules and not to obstruct traffic and to avoid dangerous situations.

The athlete must carry a mobile phone in order to be able to communicate with the organisation when needed. It is forbidden to use the mobile phone while moving, nor audio devices or headphones.

DAY 3 TRAIL

It is an uphill and downhill climb in which you will have to control your strength, as the two previous days you have exposed your body to a great effort. Enjoy the trail and live this experience calmly.

The trail route will be signposted by the organisers at points of difficult orientation.

On the 42km trail course there will be 3 CHECK-POINTS at km 10,5, 21 and 31,5 where the times of each participant will be taken.

You like sport, but what you really like is to push your body to the limit, to know that you can overcome any situation, and you apply this to your daily life.

You are one of those who look pain in the face, the adversities are what make the journey fun and the uncertainty of what you are going to experience is what motivates you to be here.

You are different, they might call you crazy... and they might also say that you were FINISHER of PIRENE 3DAYS 245K.
