Practical information on the SAS and starting waves:

– A start wave corresponds to a start time
– For each wave, there can be 1 or 2 SAS in order to distribute the runners within the starting wave according to their level and to make the starts more fluid.

The SAS are automatically constituted by our timing software 1 month before the date of the event based on the performance index that you will have at that time.

Your race time will begin when you cross the start line.
Time barriers are calculated on the departure time of the last wave.

ARTICLE 5 – Security and Medical Assistance

First aid stations (doctors, ambulances, first aiders) are located at various points along the route. These positions are in radio or telephone connection with the race headquarters.

First aid stations are intended to assist anyone in danger with the means specific to the organization or approved (depending on the seriousness, the request for intervention by the public services is not excluded)

It is up to a runner in difficulty or seriously injured to call for help:
– by going to an aid station
– by calling the PC race (phone number written on the bib)
– by asking another runner to call the emergency services
– If it is impossible to reach the race PC or controller, you can call the emergency organizations directly and only in the event of a vital emergency. (112 from France)

It is up to each runner to provide assistance to any person in danger and to notify the emergency services.

Don’t forget that hazards of all kinds, related to the environment and the race, can make you wait longer than expected for help (between 5 and 25 minutes in normal times – which can go up to 40 minutes in some cases depending on the FFA recommendations). Your safety will then depend on the quality of the equipment you have put in your bag.

A runner who calls on a doctor or a first aider submits himself to his authority and undertakes to accept his decisions.

The rescuers, official doctors and the race management are in particular empowered:
– to disqualify (by invalidating the bib) any competitor “deemed” unfit to continue the event
– to evacuate by any means at their convenience the riders they deem to be in danger.

If necessary, for reasons that are always in the interest of the rescued person, official mountain rescue will be called in, who will then take charge of the operations and implement all appropriate means, including including helicopters. The costs resulting from the use of these exceptional means will be borne by the rescued person who will also have to ensure his return from the point where he will have been evacuated. It is the sole responsibility of the runner to compile and present a file to his personal insurance within the time limit.

ARTICLE 6 – PREVENTIVE ACTION IN HEALTH

The organization has decided to set up an internal health prevention action. This action is neither intended nor competent to replace the national and/or international regulations in force in the fight against doping but aims to strengthen the medical surveillance desired by the organization. This action is piloted by a Medical Council, composed solely of doctors, who can seek advice from the experts of their choice and are responsible for giving an advisory opinion to the Race Jury on the medical condition of the participants.

Each runner agrees to:

Inform the Organization’s Medical Council in the event of the use of a prescription subject to a Therapeutic Use Exemption (TUE). A procedure is available for this purpose in the health space which each runner can access free of charge on the website of the International Trail Running Association (ITRA): www.i-tra.org. This information must be provided from the day of registration in the event of a TUE requested or obtained previously. Otherwise, it must be made no later than the 8th day following the TUE request and imperatively before the start of the race.

Accept all urine and/or blood and/or capillary samples and associated analyzes requested by the Organization’s Medical Council, it being understood that the costs inherent in carrying out these samples and associated analyzes are the direct responsibility of the Organization.

Accept to respond to any summons that the Medical Council may send him on the basis of the information concerning him that he has collected, so as to discuss his ability or not to participate in the race for which he has registered. At the end of the interview, the Medical Council may go so far as to propose to the Race Jury that the runner be taken out of competition.

ARTICLE 7 – Maximum authorized time and time barriers

For all events, maximum race times have been defined which may vary at any time depending on race conditions.
These time barriers are calculated to allow participants to reach the finish within the maximum time imposed. To be authorized to continue the event, competitors must leave the checkpoint before the fixed time limit (regardless of the time of arrival at the checkpoint).

ARTICLE 8 – Course, safety of runners and timetables

At any time, the organization of the Trail du Lac d’Annecy reserves the right to modify the route or the times of the events entered in this race. It also reserves the right to cancel a race for any reason that would put the life of the runner in danger or any case of force majeure (no refund can be requested).

The organization may have to modify the route and the distance originally planned, by favoring more numerous sections of road, in order to allow participants to run whatever the weather conditions and in complete safety (respecting the any prefectural decrees).
We make runners aware of the fact that fallback routes exist and that, except in exceptional conditions, the race can take place. The change of route cannot give rise to any compensation.

Your identifiers to access your personal space were sent to you by email when you registered.
If you can’t find them, here’s how to request them again

– Options can only be transferred during a bib transfer
– If you do not resell the options with your bib, we will not make any refund.

Buyer Information

The redemption of a bib implies the acceptance of the rules of the event

If you buy a bib from a registered runner, it will not be possible to take out cancellation insurance, nor to obtain a refund or postponement if you cannot participate in the event.
This is not a choice on our part but a constraint linked to our registration module.

When redeeming your bib, you will have to pay on the registration module the assistance to associations, the fees for non-licensed runners, the management fees (bank).

Once you have agreed, it is up to the seller to transfer his bib by going to his personal space. For your part, you will find an explanation of the actions to be taken on the last page of the online help

The registration module only allows the automatic transfer of the bib number.
Any options will be transferred manually by our team in a second step if the seller requests it.
There will therefore be a delay of a few days before this transfer of option is carried out and you will be notified by email when it is done.
Following several misunderstandings, we remind you that if you have purchased a bib with options, you should not add them to the module because you will have to pay for them. It is up to the seller to request the transfer of options and we will add them manually

This insurance makes it possible to obtain reimbursement for any unforeseeable and sudden cause that does not allow participation in the event.

This insurance does not allow you to obtain a refund in the event of cancellation of the event. In this case, our general conditions apply (see details in the section “Cancellation of the race by the organizer and reimbursement of the runners”)
It also does not allow you to obtain a refund for a reason that can be considered linked to a pandemic or epidemic (Covid 19 in particular).

How to exercise this insurance?

Valid for resident participants from all over the world and for any cancellation made up to 72 hours after the event

If you subscribed to this insurance when you registered, all you have to do is go to your contract, received by email, to access the reimbursement request link and follow the instructions.
Please note that if you request reimbursement, your registration will be automatically canceled and the insurer will take care of your compensation. Once the request has been made, we as the organizer do not have the possibility of knowing the progress of your reimbursement.
