During the entire competition, each participant is required to have the obligatory equipment indicated for the route on which he is competing.
The equipment can be checked by the Organizer both before the start and at the finish line.
Lack of the obligatory equipment will result in a time penalty for the participant. The amount of the time penalty is 15 minutes for each missing piece of equipment. The time penalty will be added to the time the participant obtained at the finish line.
