Any member of the organization may request inspection of the compulsory gear at the checking controls. ALL participants will be required to present their entire gear for inspection at the Gàtova’s control (km 43.70). Absence of any compulsory gear will be penalised (from 10 ‘ to disqualification).

Participants must follow the specific signs of the GR10 route, which are white and red marks. The organization will only include additonal signs where appropriate, and only to ensure the safety of all the participants. The goal is for the event to maintain the spirit of adventure as much as possible.
