Rules : CHALLENGE QUEEN / KING of "D" CONFINEMENT.

 

 

1) Principle:

You have to choose and spot a lap of six or seven km from home.

 

You can choose the type of ground you want to run on: road, forest, sand, mountain or countryside. Please avoid main roads so that you  stay safe and secure. Tryavoiding crowded places too in order to respect social distancing as well as possible.

 

You can choose the ascending elevation.

 

The goal of the challenge is to run your lap in less than one hour. You have to respect 1meter50 social distancing and for this part 2 of the challenge you can run with maximum two family members or friends who you usually run with.

 

The first start will be given on Saturday 30th May at 6.00p.m. for fans of ultra trail-runners who want to run for 24hours, 30, 36, 48hours or more… to give people the opportunity to try a first running experience at night.

 

A second start will be given FOR ALL RUNNERS on Sunday 31st May at 10 a.m

 

You can decide when you want to stop the challenge, depending on your physical condition or your defined objective

 

The start of the first lap is on Saturday at 6.00 p.m, the second lap begins at 7.00 p.m and so on…

 

Same principle on Sunday ! The first lap begins at 10 a.m, the second lap at 11 a.m and so on…

So if you run the 1st lap in 42 minutes, then you get 18 minutes break before leaving home for the second lap and so on…

 

The challenge will stop if:

- You can’t complete the lap in less than one hour.

- You achieve your own objective.

You can run or walk, or both.

You will be given a second form which you have to use when you decide to stop the challenge. We will use it to establish the ranking. If you don’t send the form back, you won’t appear in the final ranking.

 

All participants will belong to a FACEBOOK group created for this special event. Thanks to this group everyone will be able to share their experience, to give information about their physical condition , to share videos and pictures. Every runner will report when he/she gives up the race or when he/she arrives off the time limit.

 

During the whole challenge you can rely on your family to provide assistance at home, but also to accompany you, to encourage and to motivate you while you’re running.

 

Family and especially children can create and draw your bib which we invite you to wear during the challenge.

 

If you run at night you need a headlamp and a fluo safety vest.

 

The challenge is open to everyone: walkers, runners, trail-runners or ultra trail-runners

 

You MUST NOT stop your GPS running watch when you arrive at home in front of your stand. You will start your watch at the starting signal and you will stop it when you decide to stop the challenge.

 

The final ranking will be established according to the number of laps you ran and NOT on the number of kilometers you ran.

4. Miscellaneous information

 

Common sense should prevail. All tours will have a different  ascending elevation, a different length and a varied floor surface. We are aware ofthese facts. It will be impossible to contest them and they won’t be subject of disagreement.

 

The aim of the challenge is to have a great time TOGETHER while practicing our favourite sport activity.

 

It’s the opportunity to take on an amazing challenge and to know yourself better facing a long-term effort.

 

It’s also the opportunity to test food, hydration, equipment, assistance…

 

This will be the opportunity for some people to run at night with a headlamp.

 

BESIDES ALL THESE ADVANTAGES IT WILL BE A UNIQUE MOMENT TO SHARE ALL OUR EXPERIENCES, MEMORIES, FEELINGS. WE WOULD LIKE YOU TO FEEL ENRICHED BY THIS UNIQUE AND INCREDIBLE EXPERIENCE.
