Safety is a serious matter and we invite you to read the rules. Not to please us, but for your safety.

Along the way, various checkpoints will be inserted: both to avoid cuts and to make sure you have everything you need.

Not having the mandatory equipment, besides being able to cost you the disqualification, could put at risk your safety.

Four suggestions, not to say “we told you so”:

  1. Light check with unquestionable stop for those not carring one after 3.30 pm in Aurisina
  2. Route and equipment check on 21 km after Santa Croce
  3. Route and equipment check on 57 and 164 km after the descent of Bukovec.
  4. On Ipertrail and Ultra the GPS tracks are checked one by one, so pay attention to the cuts

RULES – FULL TEXT

Article 1 – GENERAL INFORMATIONS

 

 

"S1 Half, S1 Trail, S1 Trail +, S1 Ultra, S1 Ipertrail" are competitive races in open environment, aimed at promoting the territory of the province of Trieste and the Slovenian Karst and sport in nature, enhancing the food and wine tourism resources and naturalistic areas of the Municipalities of Sgonico-Zgonik, Municipality of Monrupino-Repen, Municipality of San Dorligo Della Valle - Občina Dolina, Trieste and Duino-Aurisina / Devin Nabrežina, Občina Hrpelje-Kozina, Občina Koper.

THIS IS NOT AN ATHLETICS RACE OR "FIDAL" EVENT.

While reaffirming the esteem and the friendship with the athletics events, we tend, for safety reasons, to stress that the nature of our races is profoundly different from that of the strictly running events. This is the reason why the regulation could appear to some readers "too restrictive" and "exaggerated" if compared to competitions of equal distance under the federal umbrella of FIDAL and organized on road.

The Corsa della Bora takes place in a potentially hostile environment, in a cold period, and nothing to do with competitions focused solely on the athletic gesture. If, in fact, from the point of view of the FIDAL competition, particularly unfriendly conditions of weather and terrain are a cause of cancellation, in this case, they represent one of the natural variables, one of the founding elements of the race on which the participants are measured in the competitive action. Competitors must relate to this event with the perspective and rules of hiking, mountain running and those used to face the natural environment independently, without underestimating the rules and regulations of the organizers, that acting in the interest of the maximum safety of the competitors and with knowledge of the facts gained from years of experience in mountaineering.

The event is transboundary in S1T, S1T+, S1U and S1I races are involving the Slovenian municipalities of Občina Hrpelje - Kozina and Občina Koper. The event consists of semi-autonomous Sky Trail races, organized without profit pourpuses from the volunteers of ASD SentieroUNO in collaboration with local associations, organizations, and people who believe in these values. The races are affiliated to ITRA, IUTA, UTMB and AICS. There are no costs or obligations in this regard for athletes.

S1T, S1T+, S1U and S1I race are competitive and require the equipment described in this regulation and take place in a single stage.

S1 Sprint is a non competitive run with offical timing, ranking and finisher medal for all participants.

The S1I race can also be carried out in teams and is subject to the special conditions of participation indicated in the "IPERTRAIL PARTICIPATION" point.

 

 

Article 2 – RANKING AND AWARDS

There is a general classification with arrival times and published on the website www.s1trail.com. The distinct categories in the ranking are "men" and "women".

  • Absolutes
  • Juniores, < 18 years old
  • Masters, >50 years old

There are cash prizes and prizes in kind.

Special prizes are awarded to the first arrivals and a memory of the race attesting the title of "Finisher" to all those who completed the race within the maximum time. They are also assigned gifts to all runners at the time of collection of the bibs (see "REGISTRATION FEE AND GOODIe BAG").

Article 3 – SENATORS

All those who have finished all editions or all editions except one, participating at any distance, have the right to be listed in the Senators Wall of Fame. The senators are entitled to special conditions for enrollment, special prizes and additional services depending on their degree of seniority of participation. Registration as a senator is not transferable to third parties and from access, in addition to the general classification to a ranking of senators only.

Article 4 – ROUTE AND REFRESHMENTS

 

The races are run in semi-autonomy. The semi-autonomy to the "Sentiero 1" is defined as the ability to be autonomous between two refreshment points, as regards their own safety, energy, and equipment, thus allowing the runner to be ready to face unexpected problems, for example, adverse weather, physical discomfort, minor injuries, etc. Water supplies are made using natural water sources along the route and marked on the map and on the road-book. In order to limit the production of waste, there are no plastic cups for refreshments or in any case they will be reduced to a minimum, so it is mandatory  that every competitor has a container to drink with. Upon arrival, each participant can take advantage of a complete refreshment and a meal offered with the registration.

 

"S1 Sprint 16 km":  It takes place entirely in the municipality of Duino-Aurisina / Devin Nabrežina, provides only one liquid refreshment at km 4. This is a path without exposed or dangerous sections, equipped with parapets and indications with a ground suitable even for the less experienced. Although it is a simple track and accessible even to non-specialized athletes in mountain running, remember that it is always a natural environment and winter, so you should always pay attention and do not underestimate the weather conditions.

 

"S1 Half 21 km" takes place along the municipality of Trieste and Duino-Aurisina / Devin Nabrežina with the following refreshment points: Ristoro Prosecco (5.5 km, liquid and solid) Ristoro Santa Croce (km 11.7, liquid and solid) Ristoro Aurisina (km 15,5, liquid and solid) Ristoro Sistiana, Arrival (km 21, liquid and solid)

Elia (km 19.8, liquid and solid) Ristoro Napoleonica (33 km, liquid and solid) Ristoro Prosecco (km 39.5, liquid and solid) Ristoro Santa Croce (46 km, liquid and solid) Ristoro Aurisina (50 km, liquid and solid) Ristoro Sistiana, Arrival (km 57, liquid and solid) for a total of about 57 km and a positive height difference of about 2500 meters.

"S1 Ipertrail" This event occurs only in even years.

Article 5 – ROUTE MARKINGS

It is advisable to study well the technical documentation and the "Race Guide" which can be consulted and downloaded from the official website, which will be published within thirty days from the start of the race. Competitors must strictly respect the race route marked with flags with reflective tape and logo of the event. Any signs of different colors must be overlooked as they indicate paths that are not part of the "S1". On the official arrows of the "S1" and the name of the race is always shown, other arrows of a different type must, therefore, be neglected.  In case you do not meet the signs or flags for several hundred meters, you must return to the back to make sure you are on the correct path. The abandon of the official track, as well as involving the disqualification from the race, will take place at the sole risk and danger of the competitor.

Article 16 – MANDATORY EQUIPMENT S1 TRAIL 57 KM, S1 HALF 21 KM, S1 ULTRA 167 KM, S1 IPERTRAIL

 

S1 Trail is a race in an environment that can be hostile with challenging and exposed stretches. The winter period and the geographical area make the meteorological conditions extremely variable and unpredictable, offering participants conditions that can vary from almost spring sunshine and dry soil, to gusty winds of 150 km / h, sub-zero temperatures and ice.

 

  • Headlight with batteries installed and charged. (Even those who expect to complete the race before it gets dark are required to have this material with them, because any unforeseen circumstances such as accidents, wrong route or other, could prolong the scheduled arrival time. We explicitly require to have a front lamp or emergency electric light other than the smartphone)
  • At least 350 ml of liquids.
  • Double thermal layer or thermal padded jacket (ie: long sleeves and windproof and windproof shell or padded rain and windproof jacket for those wearing under short sleeves)
  • Long trousers or a combination of shorts and leggings to cover the entire leg in case of need.
  • Thermal blanket (isothermal emergency sheet)
  • Emergency whistle
  • Gloves
  • Cap
  • Roadbook of the route (present behind the bib)
  • Mobile phone with registered organization numbers and always on.
  • Cup or container for drinking: there are no glasses for refreshments!
  • Only for S1 Ultra and Ipertrail: satellite locator provided by the organization always on.

 

 

For greater well-being, starting with the following material is recommended:
  • Long-sleeved shirt or extra-warm garment
  • Scarf, balaclava or windproof buff.
  • Folding poles
  • Ice crampons

 

 

ICE CRAMPONS

 

There is the possibility of finding icy sections on all the race routes. The organization reserves the right to make the following items COMPULSORY to participate in the competition:

  • Racing crampons for the S1T, S1U, and S1I races
  • Ice tacks for S1H The Requirement of crampons or nails will be announced at the latest on the second weather report. A 10% probability is estimated.

 

 

Article 17 – WEATHER

 

Given the extreme climatic and meteorological variability, the organization will publish two weather reports on www.s1trail.com in the "news" section for the following purposes:

 

Bulletin 1: 5 days after the race, to inform about the conditions of the route and the weather forecast.
Bulletin 2: 12 hours before departure with the latest updates and result of the last survey on the route. In conjunction with the Bulletins, changes or additions to the suggested equipment can be made. In the case of extreme weather phenomena, landslides or events that make the route impractical, changes at the last moment will be possible. Any changes will be communicated in clear and as soon as possible to the participants even by volunteers on the route in case the race is on.
In these cases, there is no provision for compensation to competitors.
There is no suspension of the race in any case: the date and the geographical area are in themselves indicators of a strong possibility of hostile weather, which is considered as one of the fundamental components of the challenge by the athlete in the competition.

 

 

 

Article 18 – ENVIRONMENT

 

The race takes place in natural ecosystems and nature reserves. Competitors must behave in a manner that respects the environment, in particular by avoiding waste, collecting flowers and harassing wildlife.
Disqualification is foreseen in case of voluntary abandonment of waste along the route.

 

It will be verified that any GEL, bars and wrapped consumable material is marked with the competitor's bib number. This only in order to identify any waste abandoned along the way. During the competition, it will be possible to integrate the food stocks at the refreshment points or at the life base, at the discretion of the competitor, after marking all the wrappers.

Each competitor, as indicated in the mandatory equipment, is required to have a personal liquid container with him.

 

The environmental impact due to the waste production of this event is limited thanks to actions such as, for example, the use of compostable or reusable crockery and cutlery instead of disposable ones, the dispensing of draft drinks and use of alternative ways of communication and publicizing the event.

To minimize the use of "disposable" materials, replacing them with other reusable materials, we can use:

• crockery and pots made of ceramic and metal instead of plastic;

• cloth bags and bags for shopping instead of plastic bags;

• bottles of water and soft drinks with the return vacuum system instead of buying disposable bottles;
