Criteria for Selection
The Mawkyrwat Ultra invites runners who are 18 years and above on the 28th of October, 2017. All runners have to meet the selection criteria. Registration will only be confirmed after proof has been verified.
All selected runners for the 45k and 70k must produce a medical certificate from a recognized medical practitioner showing they are in good health and fit to run the Ultra Marathon.
All runners must only take assistance from the event staff along the route or aid stations. No personal assistance from friends or family will be allowed, which means any personal assistance will mean an immediate disqualification from the race. 70k and 45k ultra runners will have the option to have only an event staff accompany them if they choose to do so.
All runners must drop their personal race items at designated baggage drop off locations only. The organizers will not be responsible if a runner leaves their bags unattended or they are dropped off in locations other than what has been designated by the organizers.
Medical assistance is available at the race venue or at designated aid stations along the route. While a runner waits for medical assistance, he/she should rely on their race pack to provide comfort till assistance arrives. This means that the water, fuel, bandage or rain jacket etc. will provide that comfort to a runner stuck between aid stations till help arrives. Any expense that a participant incurs resulting from a medical emergency or an evacuation is payable by the person being rescued. We strongly recommend that each participant should consider procuring medical insurance that could cover the emergency cost in case of any eventualities.
Cancellation or Refund
There are no cancellation or refund policies for this event. If a runner is not able to compete this year, his fee will be transferred
to the next year event and he will have to pay the difference in amount if there is a rise in the event fee. The fees will be forfeited
in case he is unable to register for the consecutive event. All cancellation communications with the event team should be done by
email or paper mail only.
Direction and Kilometre Markers
The route will be marked as much as possible all along the 70k, 45k and 30k loops. In case of any doubt at an unmarked crossing, runners should wait for the next event staff to assist them on the direction.
Any runner who wishes to relinquish the race should make it clear to the next event staff or at the aid station. It is highly recommended that runners, who wish to drop out, should do so at aid stations as it will make their evacuation to the main event venue easier. These runners will have their bibs marked and will appear as DNF in the event results online board.
Race crew present on the route and those in charge of different aid stations are authorized to uphold rules regulations and to immediately disqualify a runner for not respecting rules and regulations of the event. Some of the breaches that can lead to disqualification includes the following:
1. Taking a short-cut or a vehicular ride
2. Lack of items in the mandatory race kit for 45 and 70k runners
3. Littering along the race route.
4. Cheating. For example using another race number, doping etc.
To make this event better for consecutive years all complaints about the event must be in writing or emailed to firstname.lastname@example.org.
