Chip time measurement

The race time is measured by chip. Chips are embedded in the start numbers and are disposable. Starting numbers must be pinned to the chest of the competitor, not on the back. Do not remove,  bend, break or otherwise damage the chip, otherwise there is a risk of your time not being recorded.

Both the gun-time and your real time will be shown in the results. Under athletic rules, rankings are determined by the gun-time.

Relay teams will receive two chips to be attached to the shoe. The first runner will attach the first chip and the second runner the second chip. The first runner will pass their chip to the third runner, and the third runner to the fifth runner. The second runner will pass their chip to the fourth runner, and the fourth runner to the sixth runner. 

Refreshments

Refreshments will be available approximately every five kilometres. These will include snacks, cold drinks, bananas, chocolate, raisins and salt.

Competitors can leave their own refreshments at the refreshment station on Masaryk Square. Bottles marked with the number of the competitor must be placed at the refreshment station before the start of the race.

Refreshments will also be available at the finish of the race.
