ART. 2 – GUIDELINES

By entering the CMP Trail Bassano you automatically agree to abide by all the rules, without reserve.

Each runner agrees to comply with these rules and discharges the organisers from any civil or criminal liability for any incident or accident whatsoever, for personal injuries or property damage, caused to or by the runner, which may occur during the event named CMP Trail Bassano, which will take place in accordance with these rules and any amendments thereof, and with the notices which shall be published on the website. The full rules are available on our website www.cmptrail.it

The TRAIL world brings together people who love sport and above all respect Nature and other people. By entering the CMP Trail Bassano you agree to race in accordance with the worldwide trailers’ code of ethics. This means:do not throw rubbish on the ground, it could be harmful to the environment; respect yourself: no cheating before or during the run; respect the other trailers by trying to help fellow runners in need; respect the work carried out by volunteers who, like you, are participating for the pleasure of being there.

ART. 3 – GENERAL INFORMATION

The event includes three different routes that were planned and designed for different categories of athletes: 

  • A long, 43 km route called CMP TRAIL - LONG which has all the characteristics of a true semi-self-sufficient trail, with a positive elevation gain of 2,170 m. This is a real challenge, testing personal limits, because the race is run over hill paths and mule tracks, some of which are rarely used, through the dense woods of Bassano and Marostica, with stretches among the typical local vineyards and olive groves.It will be hard to forget the rough, stony or muddy ground, steep climbs and descents amid puddles of spring water and challenging flights of stairs. An opportunity to see a beautiful area, a competition that requires an appropriate fitness level and an ability to ration your strength and resources, to be among those who finish the CMP Trail!
  • A short, 18 km trail route called CMP TRAIL - SHORT for beginners, amateurs and anyone who wants to try their hand at a competition requiring a fairly good fitness level and, above all, wants to take on a challenge in contact with nature. A very exciting trail in terms of history, landscape, and panoramas. It winds along km after km following trails and unpaved roads, following the western side of the Brenta River, passing by the S. Bovo hermitage where the sound of bells will welcome those along the trail. With a positive elevation gain of just over 500 m, the short trail is perfect for those who want to get to know the trail world and enjoy the scenery and other attractions of Bassano and its surroundings. In this third edition of the event, the CMP TRAIL - SHORT is both a competitive (provided a medical certificate attesting to fitness for competitive races is shown) and non-competitive event. It is also possible to sign up for the Short event if you plan on Nordic walking.
  • There is a very short 7km YOUTH TRAIL for those under age 19, from middle schools and high schools and sport associations from all over Italy. The idea is to promote trail running among young people, therefore, the organisation is offering 80 individual scholarships for winners (the first 10 M/F) of the race, in the various categories: RAGAZZI, CADETTI, ALLIEVI, JUNIORES. Another scholarship is to be offered to the school that brings the most number of students and for the sport association that brings the most members. The 7 km YOUTH TRAIL will also be open to those who want to take it on with the NORDIC WALKING technique, open to all at their own pace.
  • There will be a short 2 km trail through the vineyards of Villa Angarano. It is meant for children from ages 4 to 12 who will get the opportunity to understand more about the disciplines of running and trail running.

N.B. THE ABOVE TIMES MAY VARY TO ENSURE THE EVENT PROCEEDS SMOOTHLY

ART. 9 – PUNCHING AND CHECK AT DEPARTURE

Each bib is issued to one individual and must be worn over clothes on the chest, over the stomach or around a thigh and it must be clearly visible throughout the run. We will start marking bibs at 7 a.m. The bibs are fitted with an electronic chip, which must be handed over at the finish. If an athlete withdraws during the run, he/she must give their bib, with the chip, to one of the volunteers along the route.

ART. 10 – CHECKPOINTS

Checkpoints along the route, where all competitors will be registered, will be at the refreshment stations (and at the time gates).There will also be other checkpoints established by the organisers, who may carry out checks anywhere along the route, without notice. Only competitors who were registered at all checkpoints will be ranked and awarded a prize. Competitors are therefore reminded to give their bib number, promptly and clearly, any time a member of staff along the route requests it. Punching at the finish line allows the timekeepers to establish the placings.

ART. 11 – REFRESHMENT STATIONS

The fundamental principle of this event is food semi-self-sufficiency. There will be six refreshment stations (including the last one, in Villa) along the route; their locations will be announced at the briefing. The six refreshment points will be stocked with beverages and a few different foods. Therefore, runners must provide themselves with whatever they think they will need to get from one refreshment station to the next. All rubbish, drinking cups, gel, energy bars, etc. must be thrown into the waste bins at the refreshment points. Anyone seen throwing any kind of rubbish away outside said bins will be disqualified.

ART. 12 – EQUIPMENT

MANDATORY EQUIPMENT FOR THE 43 km RUN:

• 1/2 litre of water, enough to tide you over between refreshment stations • energy gel or bars • shoes suited to trail running • emergency thermal blanket • mobile phone: we ask that you save the following numbers: help number --> 335-727-7410 / number for organisers 366-777-3361 • a windbreaker in case of bad weather • whistle

There is a time limit—racers must reach the finish line 30 minutes before sunset. Runners with time barrier objectives should carry a head lamp.

MANDATORY EQUIPMENT FOR THE 14.6 km:

• 1/2 litre of water, enough to tide you over between refreshment stations • energy gel or bars • shoes suited to trail running • emergency thermal blanket • mobile phone: we ask that you save the following numbers: help number --> 335-727-7410 / number for organisers 366-777-3361 • a windbreaker in case of bad weather. If the athlete does not have all of this safety equipment, he or she could be disqualified.

Runners with some but not all required equipment will be penalised. The organisers can carry out random equipment checks at the start and during the run.

ART. 13 – COMPETITORS' BAGS

Bags can be left in a special area in the start and finish zones. Each athlete has to mark his/her own bag to be able to identify it. Organisers decline all responsibility for bags left by athletes, with no exceptions. We strongly discourage leaving any valuables in the bag. The event pack includes a bag sticker.

ART. 14 – WITHDRAWALS

Runners may only withdraw from the event at a refreshment point or, alternatively, wherever there is a member of the organising team, to whom the runner will hand over her/his race bib. Race Management must be promptly informed of the withdrawal. This information is important so that rescue teams are not alerted without reason.

ART. 14 Bis - RETIRING

If a competitor drops out from the race somewhere along the route, he/she MUST go to the nearest refreshment point to communicate his or her withdrawal from the race.

ART. 15 SAFETY AND MEDICAL CARE

There will be authorised volunteers deployed along the route to ensure safety and medical care. First-aid vehicles will also move along the route in the zones accessible to the organisers’ vehicles. Support is provided by teams on trials motorcycles and are qualified to provide first-aid with bls‑d (basic life support-defibrillation). Their presence offers greater protection for all the competitors. They will move along the route without hindering the race. Please consider their presence as an invaluable safety aid.

The volunteers are able to assist people who need help, using their own vehicle or via authorised agencies. The physicians on hand have the final decision in deciding when an athlete is unfit to continue the race: bibs will be removed. First-aiders are allowed to use their vehicles to transport any runner who is judged to be in danger.

Every athlete is required—and risks being disqualified—to help other competitors in difficulty and to notify organisers of situations where first-aid or assistance is needed.

Any competitor who asks for a doctor’s or first-aider’s assistance accepts their authority and agrees to abide by their decisions. Any treatments, and the form thereof, will be the decision of the medical staff.

By calling the emergency number (given to all competitors) the runner automatically submits to the doctor/first-aider’s authority and will abide by their decisions.

ART 16 - PERSONAL ASSISTANCE

Competitors may avail themselves of a personal assistant positioned along the route.

ART 17 - PENALTIES AND DISQUALIFICATIONS

Along the way, the organisers can check a runner’s mandatory equipment and that he/she abides by the rules.

Any breaches of the rules discovered by the organisers or reported by other competitors (in the latter case, photographic or video proof is required) will be assessed by the event jury, which may disqualify the runner. This is an unappealable decision.

The jury may disqualify a runner for any grave breach of the rules, especially: - switching race bibs - failing to pass a checkpoint - cutting across or shortening the race route - lack of part or all the mandatory survival equipment - use of a means of transport - failing to help another runner in difficulty - throwing away one’s equipment along the route - polluting or harming the environment by throwing away rubbish along the route - insulting, being rude to or threatening members of the organising team or volunteers - refusing to be examined by one of the organising team doctors at any time during the race - physical/mental state judged unfit for continuing the event

ART.18 – COMPLAINTS

Complaints will be taken into consideration only if lodged in writing within 30 minutes before the organisers post the temporary rankings and only if a sum of 50 euros is paid; this sum is refunded only if the complaint is accepted. The jury is tasked with refusing or accepting complaints.

ART.19 – CHANGES TO THE ROUTE

The organisers reserve the right to change the route (shortening it or even extending it) or the location of refreshment stations, at any time. Any changes will be promptly announced on the spot or via the web (in the news and/or route sections) in order to protect the runners and volunteers and for the safe progress of the race.

In the event of very bad weather (thick fog, violent storms, high winds) which could put the competitors at risk, the start of the race may be postponed or cancelled, the route may be changed or shortened, or the race may be stopped at any point along the route.

Should the event be stopped, the final placings will be based on the last check made during the race. Competitors will not be entitled to an entry fee refund if the race is stopped. All decisions will be made by the jury and by all competent persons appointed by those in charge of the Organising Committee.

ART.20 - INSURANCE

The organisers take out civil liability insurance for the duration of the event. However, competitors assume full responsibility for themselves and by entering the run they waive any recourse against the organisers in the event for any damage or other consequences which may occur to them as a result of the race.

ART.21 – IMAGE RIGHTS

Each competitor specifically waives his/her image rights during the Trail, and waives the right to make any claims against the organisers and their official partners concerning the use of her/his image. By entering the trail run, competitors authorise the organisers to use – free of charge and with no time or geographic limitations – photographs, videos and recordings deriving from his/her participation in CMP Trail Bassano for any legitimate purpose, including publicity.

Furthermore, by signing up, every competitor authorises the organisers to process his/her personal data in accordance with the Italian Data Protection Act 196/2003 “Protection of individuals and other subjects with regard to the processing of personal data”.

ART.22 – STATEMENT OF RESPONSIBILITY

The voluntary entry and participation in CMP Trail Bassano indicates full acceptance of these rules and any amendments thereof.By entering and taking part in CMP Trail Bassano, each participant states that: he/she is aware of and accepts these rules and any amendments thereof and relieves the organisers of any civil or criminal responsibility whatsoever connected with any damages to persons and/or property caused by and/or originating from him/her before, during or after the event.
