Health Coverage
In any case all runners participate solely at their own risk. The organizers have no responsibility for whatever happens to the runners related to health issues or is due to lack of preventive medical check. It is highly recommended that the participants undergo a thorough medical examination before entering the race. The organizers will not ask for medical certificates from any athlete (male and female), since they all participate at their own exclusive risk and responsibility (children are at the liability of their parents or guardians). We will also provide offers for special health checkup for all runners, and members of their families.
The Organising Committee is responsible to provide medical service to the runners by organising and operating medical stations and units at the start, the finish and throughout the course.

Electronic Timing
All participants will be timed by a timing company using an electronic timing system. For this reason, the runners must wear the timing chip they will receive from the registration center together with the participation number.
Attention: Your time will not be registered and will not be included in the results if you do not have the timing chip attached to your shoe and not pass over the timing mats.

Supply Stations 
For the Half Marathon race there will be 6 supply stations (5, 7.5, 10, 12.5, 15 & 17.5km) providing water and isotonic drinks..

Awards
Awards will be given to the first three athletes who will finish the race (men & women) of the general group.
All runners who will finish the race will be given a commemorative medal and t-shirt of the race.
