F.A.Q. Frequently Asked Questions

READ OUR FAQS

Each competitor must be considered suitable for high-commitment cardiovascular competitive activity by a sports doctor. In the registration form, the competitor declares to be in possession of a valid document at the date of the race, that states this condition

We do not collect a copy of the medical certificates (but this does not exonerate you in any way to have it), and we accept any certificate attesting the ability to sustain any high-cardio vascular activity, signed by a sports doctor.

So the classic medical certificate for athletics is fine, but certificates for triathlon, swimming, biking, etc. are also valid.

No FIDAL card is required, much less the Run Card.

We take care of each competitor’s insurance.

If online registrations are only open with the “Mountain Rescue / Soccorso Alpino” option, this means that the maximum number of “ordinary” places has been reached.

 

 

At the beginning of the year, we assign the maximum number of competitors for each race, in addition to which the remaining places go in favor of the Alpine Rescue. It is a fixed quota that if modified would take away the sense of this initiative.

 

 

The mechanism: we make a count of how many places are available and how many of they cover the costs of the race.
The Corsa della Bora is not an initiative to make a profit, so once the operating costs are covered, the remaining places that can be run safely are devolved to the people that everyday guard on our trails.

Other races raise the price, earning more, precisely on those places that already have very high margin.
We do the opposite: we give up the most profitable sale, to the most valuable BIBS, because we are grateful and aware of the value of the service that is given to us free of charge every day.

 

 

These bibs are identical to the normal ones, they differ only in color and because they do not have a race pack, just to maximize the amount to be given in support.

Those who purchase them have the same services: shuttle, wardrobe, refreshments, same ranking, finisher medal, showers, massages, pasta party, insurance and much more, but do something more than the other competitors. Give up something of your own, like us at S1, to help one day help others every day.
The best way to start the year with a good star.
All those who buy these bibs, then receive an email confirming the payment to the beneficiary.

 

 

It is necessary to clarify the concept of Ipertrail and the concept of S1 Ultra

Ipertrail, more than a race is a challenge in strategy and navigation. A mountain experience with a very expensive support for transporting the material of the competitors in boxes, synchronized with the movements of the single person and a race with a constant monitoring of each runner. Doing this has very high costs and requires a low number of participants. This is why the race is one of a kind. No organizer has decided to create a race that does not generate profits, but only costs, and is based only on carrying forward an idea in its purity, a concept of ultra trail. The most important thing, however, is to understand that those who choose this race must love the “adventure”, must be able to appreciate the idea of being apparently alone in the middle of nowhere. They must want to challenge their minds before their legs. In two editions we realized that, despite the online explanations and the single contact of each runner, only 60% of the selected competitors understood this concept. Added to this is we have a 30% refusal of registration requests due to lack of requirements. This has meant that those who are our efforts to give a unique experience, were seen by some runners as a discomfort caused or an organizational lack.
For example, providing personal BOXES does not mean saving money on food for refreshments, but this is generating very high costs of logistics and management in favor of creating a completely different racing experience.

We strongly believe in Ipertrail, a unique race, a challenge that those who completed it will remember for life and a completely different running experience from the common races. This experience is reserved for small amount of runners. And those few are the lovers of this kind of experience, not the fastest or the strongest athletes. Ipertrail is not a traditional race and this must be clear.

We did not want to change the spirit but we wanted to satisfy even those looking for a traditional Ultra, with route markings, refreshments and all the standard services of the classic 100 miles. In short, one of those races that many sign up, without reading the rules, and then won’t find unwelcome “surprises” (read the regulations!)

 

The only way not to betray Ipertrail’s spirit and satisfy those who love the traditional 100, was to create two distinct races.

 

 

So here in the ODD years, there will be S1 Ultra, a 164 km that runs in the opposite direction the path of the Ipertrail 2018. All info here and the map here: http://www.s1trail.com/gps164/

A race open to all, marked, with the rules of the traditional 100 miles and a maximum number of 150 runners.

The start times have also been adapted to guarantee a fast race, accessible to all runners and with the minimum number of hours of darkness. Online registration here: http://www.s1trail.com/en/registrations/

 

 

In the EVEN years, there will be a 167 km Ipertrail whose course will change at each edition, creating a unique journey and a discovery of the Triestine Karst, Slovenian and in the future also of the Croatian one.
In 2020 we anticipate that the route will start from Gorizia to touch the Vipacco Valley, Mount Nanos, Mount Taiano and then arrive in Trieste. A truly amazing journey. Detailed information will be published within 12 months from the date of the race.This will allow those who love the kind to have a different travel experience at each edition, while still maintaining the spirit and without facilitating those who have already participated.
Registration only by invitation or after a chat with the organization. You can write or contact us from here

No, the START lines are separated and only some route sections are overlapping.

In particular: the 21 km corresponds to the last 21 km of the 57 km and the 57 km coincides with the last 44 of the 164 km. The 8 km and the non-competitive routes have different paths.

Per essere senatori bisogna aver partecipato alle prime due edizioni della Corsa della Bora per chi si è iscritto ed ha partecipato nel 2018, dal 2018 in poi per essere senatori bisogna aver partecipato a tre o più edizioni.

Quindi dal 2019 in poi saranno senatori solo coloro i quali hanno partecipato a 3 o più edizioni, ad oggi sono senatori anche quelli che ne hanno fatte due, applicando il regolamento 2016-2018, ovvero quello con le condizioni a cui si sono iscritti.

To be a senator you must have participated in the first two editions of the Corsa della Bora for those who registered and participated in 2018 or before, from 2018 onwards to be a senator you need to have participated in three or more editions.

So from 2019 will be senators only those who have participated to 3 or more editions, before this date are also senators who have run two, applying the 2016-2018 regulation, the one with the conditions to which they are registered.

 

Article 3 – SENATORS

The list of the senators can be found here:

 

Senatori della Corsa della Bora

 

If your name is not in the senator rankings, please let us know and we will edit the file. Unfortunately, it may happen when some information is missing or is different for people who have enrolled online or from an s1 point or event.

This is nobody’s fault but the simple lack of correspondence between data acquired from different sources and we can fix it easly

Alla Corsa della Bora siamo molto amici degli animali, ed oltre ad una forte coscienza ambientale cerchiamo che esprimiamo con un regolamento molto restrittivo a tutela dell’ambiente ed una totale assenza di involucri di plastica sul percorso, ci impegniamo nella tutela delle specie e dell’ecosistema che attraversiamo.

In quest’ottica i nostri amici a quattro zampe non potevano essere esclusi dalla manifestazione ed abbiamo creato una Corsa/camminata appositamente per loro, con animatori per cani, giochi ed intrattenimento Puoi leggere su questa

At Corsa della Bora we are very fond of animals, and besides a strong environmental awareness that we try to express with a very restrictive regulation to protect the environment,  and a total absence of plastic enclosures on the path, we are committed to the protection of all living species and ecosystems we cross.

With this attitude, our four-legged friends could not be excluded from the Corsa della Bora.  We created a Run / Walk specially for them, with animators for dogs, games and entertainment You can read on this page all the information on a S1 Dog

In addition to the S1 Dog, there are non-competitive routes / walks where dogs are not only allowed, but are welcome. Then read the information on the Marcia della Bora on this page

However, the 8 km, 21 km, 57 km and 164 km races are exclusively reserved for runners and not even the access with any aid other than trekking poles is allowed.
Unfortunately, we can not bring our four-legged friends on these tracks.

There are two reasons: the first concerns the safety of those who run.
The paths are narrow, there are steps in which a leash could be dangerous for the other competitors and the space is carefully calibrated on the number of participants. Every year we have to refuse an increasing number of applications to the race for the same reason. The number of participants is limited and restricted.
the second reason concerns the safety of dogs. The same dogs, although on a leash, could be overwhelmed by other competitors and there are several steps on the karst rock “campo carreggiato” that does not bother us that we wear trail shoes, but that could easily hurt the legs of our best four-legged friend.

  • If you want to stay overnight at Bora Village you have to book your place.
  • The Bora Village is the finish point of all the races but also the starting point of the 164 and the departure point of the shuttles for the 8, 21 and 57.
  • This is not a gym but an auditorium, inside the sports complex, used as a dormitory.
  • For insurance reasons, this area is accessible exclusively to the competitors of the S1 races.
  • You have to bring your own sleeping pad and sleeping bag, we will not provide a bed
  • The reservation is only for the night of January 4th or/and 5th and includes dinner.
  • On January 6th the Village is open until 10 pm and there is a space for rest after the race, and it’s free.
    After 10 pm on January 6th we close the Bora Village, so if you want to sleep the night of 6 January, and do not just rest a few hours, we recommend one of the facilities next door.
    The list is here: http://www.s1trail.com/hotel/

Exact. It’s correct!. If there are fountains they are closed for the winter.

You will not even find lodges, shelters or anything else.

Exceptions, not always open:
Refuge at km 50.6 (Monte Cocusso)
Refuge at km 100 (Monte Taiano), but of course, it depends on what time you get there.

At km 34.5 (Col) there may be a restaurant if you get there in the opening hours.
No rivers, springs, streams or even puddles along the way.

My suggestion is to rely only on the refreshments

For the 2019 edition, the S1 long sleeves shirt is free for all S1 Half runners.

The shirt has on the chest the name of the distance you are running and the name of the race. If you are enrolled in S1 Ultra or S1 Trail,  and you also want the long sleeves shirt with the name of the race in which you participate, you can buy it at full price (euro 20) at the S1 stand on the day of the race.

Alternatively, you can ask for a race goodie bag upgrade to the premium option, and you will receive it in addition to the race goodie bag of the distance you have chosen.

The upgrade costs € 15. You can pay by bank transfer or PayPal.
Once payment is complete, you can request the upgrade to enroll@s1trail.com

Great for your equipment or to put dirty and wet clothes after a race and seal them up at home.
