How to dress

Don’t underestimate the risks associated with cold weather, especially the risk of frostbite, a cold burn that usually affects the extremities of the body (toes, ears) and exposed surfaces of the face (nose, cheeks, chin) and is painless, at least until it thaws in the heat. Fortunately, preventing frostbite is simple; just dress for the cold.

Liability waiver and image rights

The practice of a sport involves risks, and each participant MUST complete and sign the liability waiver and the image rights authorization. It is the responsibility of the captain of each team to ensure that this document is completed by all teammates before participation in the event.

Rules

In order to guarantee equal and fair conditions of participation for all participants, rules are in place. It is the responsibility of each participant to be aware of the rules and to respect them. In the competitive challenges, race marshals will be present to ensure that these rules are respected. Penalties will be applied in case of violation of the rules.
