1. FOREWORD: Important note regarding the SARS COV 2 pandemic (COVID 19)

With the pandemic still ongoing, it is difficult to predict what situations we will encounter when the event is on. Over the next few months we will be putting in place every measure necessary to ensure CURSA DI CICLOPI – 2023 edition goes ahead, in accordance with regulations issued periodically by the competent national and international authorities. These race regulations will be updated as necessary. Any substantial changes will be notified via our newsletter and published on the website and all official race channels.

2. ORGANIZATION

The TRISCELE TRAILERS amateur sports club organizes the CURSA DI CICLOPI.

3. DESCRIPTION

CURSA DI CICLOPI is a foot race in a natural environment, running along paths, dirt tracks and paved roads in North-Eastern Sicily, between the provinces of Palermo, Enna, Catania and Messina.
The race is run in a single, free-speed stage within a limited time, in conditions of semi-self-sufficiency.
The route includes high-altitude sections, some above 2,800 metres, where conditions can be extremely harsh (wind, cold, rain, snow and ice), alternating with sections at much lower altitudes where conditions can be the exact opposite (very hot).
Runners must be prepared for varying weather conditions between refreshment points, both day and night. Your choice of clothing and the equipment you carry with you should therefore reflect what is required for these particular circumstances. Rigorous training and a personal capacity for autonomy are imperative pre-requisites if you are planning to compete in this race.

RACE CHARACTERISTICS: a route of approx. 500 km with a positive gain of approx. 20,000 m crossing the territory of 50 municipalities, starting and finishing in Cefalù. On the route there are refreshment points at varying distances (from approx. 3 to approx. 18 km) and eight Life Bases in Gangi, Maniace, Zafferana Etnea, Castiglione di Sicilia, San Piero Patti, San Marco d’Alunzio, Pettineo and Cefalù.

CAUTION!
Underestimating the physical and psychological preparation and the proper clothing and equipment required can have serious and potentially life-threatening consequences!

If you take part, it is imperative:

  • to be fully aware of the unusual length and peculiarities of the race;
  • to be thoroughly prepared, both physically and mentally;
  • that prior to the race you equip yourself for total self-reliance in the mountains, so that you can handle any problems involved with this type of endurance trial, in particular:
    • coping alone and in isolation with the physical and psychological problems of extreme fatigue, gastro-intestinal upsets, muscle and joint pain, minor cuts and injuries, etc.;
    • managing altitude and weather conditions that could potentially cause extreme difficulty (darkness, strong wind, freezing temperatures, fog, rain and snow) without any help;
    • understanding that the organisation’s role is not to help a runner manage the normal problems that can arise and that safety, especially in such a demanding race, depends on one’s ability to self-manage in even extreme situations.
4. DIFFICULTY OF THE RACE

ITRA classifies trail races according to their level of difficulty.

Understanding the difficulty of a trail race allows runners to select the race that best suits their needs and better prepare for it.

ITRA race evaluations provide runners with ratings that are consistent throughout the world.

The ITRA uses a ratified method to calculate the difficulty level of a race; the method is based on the notion of ‘Km-effort’.

The total “Km-effort” of a race is calculated taking into account both distance and altitude difference.

5. TERMS OF REGISTRATION

All persons, men and women, aged 20 years or over at the time of registration (categories from Seniors to Veterans), may register. There are no specific restrictions for registration, but it is strongly recommended to have already participated in other long trails (100 km or more), of several days.

6. REGISTRATION FEE

The registration fee is set at € 1,380.00.

7. NUMBERS OF RUNNERS

MAXIMUM NUMBER: the maximum number of bibs available is 500.

If the number of pre-registrations exceeds the maximum number of eligible runners provided, a draw will be organised. Following this, a list of eligible runners will be drawn up and published on 100x100trail.com by 10 December 2022.

By paying the registration fee, the runner declares having read and accepted these race regulations.

CHARITY RACE NUMBERS: 20 charity race numbers will be available to runners, the proceeds from which will be donated to one or more of the organisation’s partner charities after the runner’s race expenses have been deducted. These race numbers will be available to purchase online at 100x100trail.com from 12:00 noon on 11 December 2022 until midnight on 11 March 2023, or until they are sold out. Charity race numbers are charged at € 3,000 each, of which € 1,500 to cover the race registration fee and € 1,500.00 as a share donated to charity. The amount donated to charity is non-refundable. Payment is by credit card only and receipts will be issued for tax purposes.

ECO RACE NUMBERS: 10 environmental bibs will be made available to runners, which can be purchased by credit card payment – followed by the issue of a receipt for tax purposes – directly on the website 100x100trail.com from 12:00 noon on 11 December 2022 and available until midnight on 11 March 2023 or until sold out.

The cost of each environmental bib is € 3,000.00, of which € 1,500.00 is the registration fee for the race and € 1,500.00 will be used to finance the study and activities relating to reducing the environmental impact on the area where the event takes place. The fee used for environmental activities is non-refundable.

8. HOW TO REGISTER

REGISTRATION/UPDATE OF DETAILS ON THE 100%TRAIL WEBSITE: before you can register, you must first pre-register on the VDA Trailers 100x100trail.com website. It is advisable to pre-register on the website before the registration period begins. Users who are already registered must update their details before registration begins; it will be too late to do so after. If you have forgotten your password, please request a new one; do not create a new profileIf you create a second profile, any priority treatment you are eligible for will be cancelled (e.g. draw coefficients, runner rotation, etc.). When you register on the 100x100trail.com website you will be required to disclose your personal details; it is a criminal offence in Italy to give false information.

PRE-ENTRY: pre-registration opens on 1 October 2022 at 12:00 noon and closes on 30 November 2022 at midnight. Candidates must fill in the on-line form in all its parts and proceed with the payment of the sum of € 50.00 (partially refundable), which will be deducted from the registration fee when the runner makes full payment of the fee.

Once the payment has been made and confirmed by the interbank on-line payment service, the pre-registration will be registered as completed in the organisation’s database.

A confirmation email will be sent to the mailbox indicated at the time of registration.

Only those pre-registrations whose payment is successful and confirmed by the international credit card payment system will be considered valid. The Organization declines all responsibility for the acceptance of on-line payments.

The process assigns a unique code to each person registered. Registration is personal and bib number exchanges and/or name substitutions are not permitted on pain of exclusion from the race. Therefore, in the event of an exchange of registration between two persons, they will be removed from the entry list and any sum paid by them will not be returned.

REGISTRATION:  if pre-registrations exceed the maximum number allowed, the final list of runners admitted to the race will be determined by a draw, taking into account the country quotas below.

Registration stages:

    • Sign-up/update details on the 100x100trail.com website
    • Pre-registration (from 1 October to 30 November 2022)
    • Data checked
    • Draw
    • Country quotas determined
    • Official notification to selected runners (by 10 December 2022)
    • Enrolment completion (11 to 31 December 2022)

DRAW: a draw will be held after the pre-registration period closes and all the data entered has been checked. The list of pre-registered runners will be input to a third-party programme which will issue a list in random order using an unalterable algorithm.

COUNTRY QUOTAS: CURSA DI CICLOPI is more than just a sporting event, it is also a means of promoting the Sicilian territory throughout the world, along with the values of intercultural relations and fellowship between nations, which are the essence of island spirit. For this reason, the organisation has decided to set country quotas as follows:

  • any nation represented on the list of pre-registrations is entitled to a minimum of 2 participants,however many entrants are registered.
  • the remaining number of runners for each country will be based on the total percentage of non-Italian pre-registrations that country represents.

COMPLETION OF REGISTRATION: all selected runners will be sent a confirmation e-mail by 10 December 2022 and will have from 11 to 31 December 2022 to finalise their registration by proceeding to the payment of the envisaged fee, minus the amount already paid in the pre-registration phase.

Once the payment has been made and confirmed by the on-line interbank payment service, the registration will be registered as completed in the Organisation’s database and the name will appear in the list of registered participants.

A confirmation e-mail will be sent to the mailbox indicated at the time of registration.

Only those registrations whose payment has been successfully completed and confirmed by the international credit card payment system will be considered valid. The organisation declines all responsibility for the acceptance of on-line payments.

Runners who do not proceed in time (i.e. before the deadline of 31 December 2022) to finalise their registration will lose their right to register.

NON-SELECTED RUNNERS AND REFUNDS:  runners not selected by the draw will still be kept on the ordered list and may be reselected whenever a place becomes available due to the failure of a selected athlete to complete the entry. The reselected athlete will be promptly notified of the opportunity to register by email (*). Once the list of starters has been finalised, pre-registered athletes who have not been selected or repechaged will be reimbursed the sum of € 40.00 (€ 50.00 – € 10.00 secretarial fee). No reimbursement will be due to those who, despite having paid the pre-registration fee, and having been selected, did not proceed to the final registration within the deadline.

(*) In this case, the registration must be completed within 10 days from the date of the e-mail notification of the repechage.

9. CONSENT FORM AND MEDICAL CERTIFICATE

CONSENT FORM: all runners are required to sign a consent form declaring that they are aware of the difficulty of the endurance trial they are about to undertake and agreeing to carry with them all the equipment they need to complete the race safely.

The consent form is available in your personal file at www.100x100trail.com and must be completed online no later than 15 March 2023.

The organisation reserves the right to request additional certification depending on the requirements of any national and/or international regulations that may be issued to contain the SARS COV 2 pandemic (COVID-19).

MEDICAL CERTIFICATE: it is mandatory to submit a medical certificate of fitness for competitive sports, with the following specification:
certificate of fitness to participate in competitions, dated not more than one year before the date of the race.

A consultation for a medical certificate of fitness to participate in competitions consists of the following tests: spirometry, electrocardiogram under stress, visual test and urine test.

  • runner’s personal details
  • the wording ‘competitive activity’ or ‘trail running in competitions’
  • date of issue
  • doctor’s stamp
  • doctor’s signature

For foreign certificates, please request a copy in English or French.

Medical certificates and consent forms will not be accepted at the start of the race.

10. REFUND OF REGISTRATION FEES

TRISCELE TRAILERS SSD is a non-profit organisation. Proceeds from the corporate business are invested in sports activities. Organising sporting events is an extremely demanding process involving a great many activities and requiring resources to meet fixed costs (salaries, rental of office premises and warehouses, maintenance of equipment, service and utility charges, subscriptions to external services such as press reviews, logistics costs, etc.). This means that any registration fees paid can only be reimbursed strictly within the stipulated limits and in the cases listed below:

REFUND FOR CANCELLATION OF THE RACE:  in the event that the race is cancelled due to force majeure beyond the control of the organisation, including any national or international regulations issued to contain the spread of COVID-19, the proportion of the registration fee to be refunded will be determined as follows:

% refund
before 1 January 2023 60%
between 1 January and 31 January 2023 50%
between 1 February and 28 February 2023 30%
after 28 February 2023 no refund

Refunds will only be made on submission of the appropriate request form completed by the runner, which will be provided by the organisation.
CAUTION!
Requests for refunds due to race cancellation received after 30 June 2023 will not be accepted.

REFUND FOR WITHDRAWAL OF ENTRANT: there are no refunds if the competitor decides not to participate in the race. A competitor who, for personal reasons, decides not to participate, may request to have his registration for the 2024 edition of the Cursa di Ciclopi deferred.  The deferment only lasts for one year and remains valid even if the entry fee is increased for the following year. To benefit from the deferment of 100% of the entry fee, requests must be made by sending an e-mail to info@trisceletrailers.com up to one month before the date of the event. Beyond one month and up to one week before the event, only 50% of the registration fee can be deferred to the following year. Beyond this deadline, the competitor will be considered a non-starter (DNS) and will not be entitled to retain any part of the entry fee for the following year.

REFUND WILL NOT BE MADE FOR ANY OTHER EVENTUALITIES.

11. BIBS AND CHIPS

BIBS: bibs are handed personally to runners on presentation of a photo ID. Two bibs will be issued: one to be worn in a visible position on the chest or stomach at all times, and one to be attached to the backpack. Bibs allow runners free access to shuttles, buses, refreshment areas, treatment rooms, rest rooms, showers, bags, etc.

CHIPS: two timing chips will be handed out along with race numbers:

  • a numbered wristband to be worn for tracking via smartphone at checkpoints;
  • a numbered strap to be attached on the outside of the backpack for detection by antennas at the start and finish.

Before the start, all runners must pass through the entry gates into the enclosed starting area to be registered.

12. GPS TRACKERS

Every runner is issued with a GPS tracker to be fixed on the outside of the backpack and returned after the race. A deposit of € 100,00 (cash) is required, which will be forfeited if the tracker is not returned.
The GPS trackers allow spectators to view the runners’ progress on an interactive map.

It is the responsibility of runners to check that their trackers are switched on and working properly before the start of the race, following the instructions provided by the organisation.

13. SEMI-SELF-SUFFICIENCY

CAUTION!
Underestimating the physical and psychological preparation and the proper clothing and equipment required can have serious and potentially life-threatening consequences!

Semi-self-sufficiency is defined as the ability to be autonomous in terms of safety, subsistence and equipment between refreshment stops. It also includes the ability to handle and manage any issues that may arise (bad weather, physical problems, injuries, etc.).

Daily weather forecasts are displayed at all Life Bases and on the website www.weathersicily.it for runners to assess what type of clothing and equipment they will need to continue the race in safety. If there are any special circumstances, the organisation reserves the right to require runners to carry specific equipment (crampons where the route is over frozen ground, heavy clothing, etc.).

14. EQUIPMENT

CAUTION!
Underestimating the physical and psychological preparation and the proper clothing and equipment required can have serious and potentially life-threatening consequences!

All runners must carry with them for the entire race all the equipment they need to safely confront the challenges of weather, route and altitude. This equipment must be carried in a suitably-sized backpack.

Runners may offload equipment they are carrying only into their personal CDC bags at Life Bases, where the bags are kept.

In particular circumstances (adverse weather conditions, difficult technical route, etc.), the race marshals may check the equipment that runners are carrying and report to the race organisers. After assessing the situation along with security officials and rescuers, the race organisers may take the decision at their sole discretion to stop a runner from completing the race.

COMPULSORY EQUIPMENT: compulsory equipment that all runners must carry with them for the entire race.

All details are specified in a Security Plan filed and approved by the Prefectures of the Provinces of Palermo, Enna, Catania and Messina affected by the passage of the race. Rescue points are there to provide assistance for anyone experiencing difficulties, via the official agencies or the organisation’s own resources.

The official race doctors are authorised to remove runners from the competition if they consider them unfit to continue. Rescue service workers are authorised to remove from the race any runner they believe to be in danger, using any means at their disposal. Where necessary for the interests of the person requiring rescue and at the sole discretion of the organisers, the official mountain rescue services may be called in to take over the rescue operation using any means they consider appropriate, including helicopter. Any costs incurred by recourse to this method of transport will be charged to the person rescued, in accordance with current regulations.

Any runner who requests the services of a doctor or rescue service worker implicitly submits to their authority and undertakes to abide by any decision they make.

Doctors and health professionals stationed along the trail route will only provide assistance in cases of major medical or health problems. All runners must make sure they take with them everything they need to treat foot problems and small cuts and grazes not requiring medical attention.

HEALTH INSURANCE: medical expenses in Italy are not free. The costs of rescue by helicopter and emergency medical treatment are only covered by the relevant institutions in the runner’s country of residence, or any private insurance policy, if the runner is carrying the following up-to-date documentation:

  • ITALIAN NATIONALS: health insurance card/tax code.
  • EUROPEAN NATIONALS (including Switzerland, Liechtenstein and the UK): European health insurance card.
  • NON-EUROPEAN NATIONALS: a guarantee of payment letter with the address of the insurance company to which invoices should be sent.

Anyone who does not have public health cover (Italian or European health insurance card) or private health insurance (payment guarantee letter from a private insurance company) will be required to pay the full cost of any healthcare provided, including emergency treatment.

The relevant documentation must be carried at all times during the race. Runners must pay any non-urgent medical expenses in full.

HELICOPTER RESCUE: transfer by helicopter is only for patients requiring urgent medical attention and cannot be used simply as a means of transport by runners who withdraw from the race.
Where a runner is of foreign nationality or not covered by the national health service, or in the event of a call-out not justifiable for health reasons, the entire cost must be paid by the runner, even if he/she is registered with the national health service.

16. INSURANCE

The organisation takes out public liability insurance to cover the entire period of the event. Participation in the race is entirely at the runners’ own risk. Runners waive the right to make any claim against the organisers in the event of injury or consequences that may arise subsequent to the race.

At the time of registering online, runners are required to sign a consent form to complete the registration process.

The organization undertakes to enrol all registered competitors with the ASI (Italian Sports Association), which provides accident insurance for all (click here for details).

Runners are strongly advised to take out personal injury insurance in case of accidents during the race, covering medical expenses and rescue by helicopter.
ITRA (International Trail Running Association) has developed a special trail-running insurance policy to cover the needs of trail runners who experience difficulties during a race (for details go to https://itra.run/Runners/AboutInsurance).

17. ASSISTANCE DURING THE RACE

Assistants are expected to observe the regulations, on penaltyof the runner being disqualified.

Refreshment point managers have the right to remove assistants who cause inconvenience to the competitors.

Personal assistance is permitted only in the areas specially reserved for this purpose at refreshment points and Life Bases, and at the discretion of individual refreshment point managers. Each runner is allowed one assistant only, who must hold a pass issued by the organisation.

Assistants may not consume refreshments provided for the runners. Runners must help themselves personally to any refreshments they require.

Assistants may bring spare clothing and shoes, food and/or supplements for runners.

Professional assistance (team members, professional trainers) and medical or paramedical assistance are strictly prohibited.

The showers, medical treatment rooms and appointed rest areas are for the exclusive use of runners. Access to these areas is prohibited for assistants.

Assistance of any kind along the route is prohibited and will incur the disqualification of the runner.

Assistants and coaches must observe road transit restrictions. Any infringement of this rule will incur the disqualification of the runner.

Assistance provided by camper van, car or any other means of transport is prohibited anywhere except at Life Bases. Any runner found sleeping, eating or receiving assistance outside the authorised points will be disqualified.

18. COACHING

Runners are prohibited from receiving coaching along the route, on penalty of disqualification.

19. REFRESHMENT POINTS AND CHECKPOINTS

All official refreshment points are also checkpoints. Runners must ensure they register correctly. Failure to register at a checkpoint will lead to disqualification of the runner.

Runners must follow the marked route through refreshment points, even if they are not intending to stop over.

The organization reserves the right to carry out checks at unofficial checkpoints along the route.

The official refreshment points supply drinks and food strictly for runners only, which must be consumed on site.

Plastic drinking cups are not supplied.

Before leaving a refreshment point, runners must ensure they have enough food and water to last them until the next one.

20. LIFE BASES - REST AND SHOWERS

Life Bases are set up along the route where runners can have a full hot meal and a hot shower, and stay for a longer rest, depending on time barrier constraints.

All Life Bases are checkpoints. Runners must ensure they register correctly both on entering and on leaving. Failure to register at a checkpoint will lead to disqualification.

Life Bases are indicated on the schedule of race checkpoints, in the altitude profile and on the GPX trackers. All files can be downloaded from the website www.cursadiciclopi.com.

It is strictly prohibited to sleep in any building, shelter or vehicle other than the organisation’s check points.

21. RIDERS BAGS (CDC BAG + WITHDRAW BAG)

At the bib distribution, each runner will be given a bag for the equipment they need to complete the race safely (CDC bag) – which will be transferred between Life Bases by the organization – and a bag containing what the competitor deems necessary to have available in case of withdrawal (spare clothing, identity document, etc.), which will be kept at the Life Base in Cefalù.

Runners are required to collect their CDC bags in person on entering a Life Base, and return them in person to the bag collection volunteers when leaving.

If a runner withdraws from the race, the CDC bag will be taken to the Life Base in Cefalù where it can be collected at the time the race number is handed in. Since it is not possible to guarantee that, in the event of withdrawal, the runner’s bag will already be available upon arrival in Cefalù, it is strongly recommended that the runner’s bag be prepared with everything that may be useful to the runner while waiting to receive his or her CDC bag. The volunteers at the Cefalù Life Base are not responsible for the non-arrival of CDC bags.

CDC bags will not be transported if anything is attached to the outside. Please do not put any fragile items or items of value in the CDC or pick-up bags. The organization accepts no responsibility for any items lost or damaged during the entire competition period.

22. WITHDRAWAL AND RETURN TO CEFALU'

Runners wishing to withdraw before the end of the race must go to the nearest checkpoint and report their decision to withdraw. The organization will then arrange for transport back to the Life Base at Cefalù.

Any runner who withdraws without reporting the decision immediately, thereby prompting a search by rescue personnel, will be responsible for any costs incurred.

23. MAXIMUM TIME ALLOWED AND TIME BARRIERS

CURSA DI CICLOPI is held in a single, free-speed stage with a limited time of 168hrs.

A schedule of stages and time barriers is available to download from the www.cursadiciclopi.com website.

Each life base has two time barriers: one at the entrance and one at the exit. These are calibrated to allow runners to reach the finish line within the maximum time allowed, but still make stops (to rest, eat, etc.).

The time barriers at interim points are set up as exit barriers.

Runners will not be allowed to leave after the time limit has expired.

24. CHANGES TO THE ROUTE AND TIME BARRIERS – CANCELLATION OF THE RACE

The organization reserves the right to change the route, the location of rescue and refreshment points and the time barriers, at any time and without notice.

In the event of unfavourable weather conditions (severe depression with heavy rain and snowfall at high altitude, severe risk of storm, etc.) the start of the race may be postponed by a maximum of 24 hours, beyond which the race will be cancelled.

Where necessary, the organization reserves the right to change or remove sections of the route.

25. ROUTE AND GPX TRACKING

The race route is available to download as a GPX file from the www.cursadiciclopi.com website. The Organization will notify runners in good time of any substantial change to the route and/or logistics.
