On the route there are staff members of the organization, volunteers of Civil Defence and Mountain Rescue, in constant contact with the base. Next to the finish area there is an ambulance carrying medical and paramedical staff, ready to intervene. Along the route we set up control points, where the organization staff will monitor the passage of the athletes. It is mandatory to have the number clearly visible, when passing by a control point. Bibs on the leg are not allowed. We advise to make sure you are properly registered ad each passage, in case of failure to register or failure to pass a checkpoint, the disqualification is applied. Each runner, injured or distressed, may request the assistance of the Organization:

S1 Trail is a race environment that can be hostile with energy demanding trails. The winter period and the geographical area make the weather the highly variable and unpredictable, offering to the competitors conditions that can vary from almost spring sun and dry soil, or wind gusts of 150 km / h or temperatures below freezing and ice. For varying conditions, and the fact that the race is considered reserved for those who are in physical conditions and with the experience to deal with this ground, the race rules don’t talk about “mandatory equipment”. We specify however the gear considered necessary, by the organizing committee, to deal safely and conscientiously the trail, warning that anyone who decides to go on the trails in an unsafe condition, it does so with the awareness of risking his own, and eventually the ‘others’ safety and that consequently the cost of a possible rescue, as well as any damage caused to the Organization or to other competitors, will be in total responsibility of the person. The Organization rejects from now any wrongdoing or liability claims for damages by the person concerned, or of those entitled, in case of injury or death during the event. The lack of an object or objects referred to as “equipment to be safe on the trails” involves the application of penalties and possibly disqualification. It ‘important to know that in case of emergency needs, the morphology of the territory or the weather conditions of the moment, the rescue might be waited for longer than expected. In this scenario, the security depends on the material that the competitor have in his/her backpack.
Equipment to be safe on the trails:
- Head torch or torch with batteries installed and charged. (Even those who plan to complete the race before dark is required to have with them this material, because as any unforeseen accidents, the wrong path or another, could be prolonging the estimated time of arrival.

We specify that given the difficult terrain, the potentially adverse weather conditions and logistics of the race, withdrawals will be managed by giving the highest priority to bring the competitors warm and safe place, but once in a safe and warm place the waiting to be transported to the race headquarters may be quite long.
MANDATORY EQUIPMENT IPERTRAIL (Integration)
- 2 chemical hand or foot warmers
- Satellite tracker continuously on this device provided for free by the organization for use during the race.
- GPS navigation device. We strongly recommend that a cartographic navigator, but simply a device that supports navigation with track. You can decide to use Maps and Compass, but this options is not suggested. The organization will provide tracks and digital maps installed on devices for free. If requesting the configuration of the device and its verification, this must be requested explicitly by email within 72 hours of departure.
Navigation is a fundamental element of this competition and the route is designed to test the navigation skills of the competitors.
TIME BARRIERS IPERTRAIL
In addition to the final stop in the event of failure to pass a gate (see point 16), the organization have the right to stop, without explanation or money refund:
- The competitor shows clear signs of imbalance that could compromise security
- The competitor who has switched off or tampered with the tracking device
The philosophy of IPERTRAIL refreshments is similar from the alpine camp management, nothing to do with jogging and running refreshments. There are no refreshments assisted. At the refreshment point will be the race staff or not. Monitoring by the organizers is constant through control along the path and the operations room of satellite tracking.
- The refreshments are made up of wooden boxes size 40 × 40 x 40 cm in which the competitors can enter all they want, including clothing and equipment. It will not accept anything that is not in cash. The box should contain foods and liquids different from water.
- At the life bases along the route will be present boiler with hot water. This means that you will find hot water every time you get your equipment box.
- The point will be a shelter of tent with hot air to temper the chill.
- The staff at the refreshments has the function of control and assistance in case of withdrawal but not of service to competitors.
ROUTE MARKINGS AND DEVICES GPS IPERTRAIL
The competitor is aware that the path marking may be barely noticeable for long sections. The trails are also marked at 60% with the official signs CAI CAI 1 and 3 in Italy and the circular sticker RED and WHITE in Slovenia.
Navigation on a GPS track is needed in many places. Long stretches of snow-covered forest or steppe require navigation “direction” rather than according to a path.
ROUTE CHANGE IPERTRAIL
In case of adverse weather conditions, such as snow or rain to engender a state of weather alerts according to Civil Defense, the passage in some sections could be particularly difficult and slow. No organization should clean up, facilitate or help competitors, as these conditions represent the natural status of the environment in January. Those conditions are well-known and faceable by those who have decided to enroll. The organization, however, wants to allow participants to finish the competition, as a race valid for all purposes and ranks, and by demonstrating readiness to activate an operational plan to cope with such eventualities, if it is not physically impossible to finish in 40 hours, will activate an alternative route with the same mileage and ascent but with easier ground. We emphasize that this circumstance is unlikely to occur every 20 years. So: The passage of the first competitor at km 107 (ciclopedonabile Cottur) or at the stroke of the 20th hour of the race, the organization could consider modifying the path that makes the race terminable in a maximum of 40 hours, making it easier for the last 60 km, but no particular alterations altimetry and mileage. In this circumstance the competitors must follow the GPS track and road book named as “Finish40”.
The risk of hypothermia is concrete always present. Temperatures can range from 12 to -12 degrees with wind gusts of Bora up to 150 km / h. It is recommended that proper management of body temperature and to withdraw at the first signs of hypothermia. There is the real risk of being lost. Paths with many variations, of course snow and adverse weather conditions make navigation difficult stretches. It is recommended to always keep an eye on GPS.
WAYPOINT AND GPS LOCATION ERRORS
Navigation is done following the track provided, or freely, going from all waypoints given on the mapping page, see: www.s1trail.com/gps
Failure to pass a waypoint results in a penalty of 1 hour, the failure to pass two consecutive waypoints will be disqualified. In the case of “honest mistake” or path failure, the competitor must immediately contact the direction of the race and communicate what happened. The real-time assessment of the error and the track by the race staff can determine two decisions: the competitor will have to go back on his/her steps and take the track properly, or under special end rare circumstances and evaluation by the race staff, for safety purposes, an alternative route can be approved.
MANDATORY PROCEDURES DURING THE RACE
The race and the checkpoints are monitored through three systems: satellite, a radio frequency chip and via manual registration. This redundant procedure has the aim of guaranteeing the certainty of the presence of the competitor in a determined point, and the real-time determination of the passage of the refreshment.
The competitor, under penalty of disqualification, must:
- Pass the chip at each checkpoint
- Keep the satellite locator always on and in an outside pocket of the backpack
- Sign the register before leaving the control points.
