Important information for all runners in relay and couples

  • A 5 person team for relay race consists of at least 4 different runners
  • Participants of the military 5 person team may also wear sports clothing
  • At the counter for the bib numbers relay runners will receive 5 bib numbers and couple runners will get 2 bib numbers. You must wear those bib numbers on your back (in order that other runners are able to recognize that this is a relay or a couple runner)
  • Furthermore you will receive one bib number (two numbers for troops) which will be fixed on a special belt for relay runners which will include the disposable chip for chronometry. This bib number will have to be passed to the next runner of the team at the transition zone and will have to be worn on your chest oder belly. The runners will only be classified when the bib number with the chip for chronometry will arrive at the finish line.
  • At the finish line in Biel the belt with the chip will be collected from our staff.
  • In case you quit the race, please handle the bib with the intgrated chip on the next transistion zone or at the finish line in Biel over to a staff member.
  • If one runner has to give up the race the team will be disqualified
