2.4. Map/Profile/Route description

- The routes of MIUT® - Madeira Island Ultra-Trail® are mostly composed of paths, trails, footpaths, levadas (irrigation channels), paved forest roads and small stretches of asphalt. The routes use public roads either on-road or off-road, across farms and villages and use service roads that pass through private properties. Therefore the routes will not be closed to the race and participants must take into account the fact that there may be cars, people and animals moving in both directions on the trails.

- The routes sometimes follow some roads and sometimes cross them perpendicularly. The crossing must deserve the utmost care on the part of the participants.

- There will be locations on the paths that will have gates that participants will have to open and close. Whenever a participant encounters a closed gate he should leave it the way he found it, meaning closed.

- The organization will make GPS tracks of the routes of the race. However, signalling placed on the ground will always prevail.

- The organization will mark the route with signalling ribbons (red and white with the inscription MIUT®) with a reflective band and will also use vertical signs. It is imperative to follow the marked paths without taking shortcuts. If a participant doesn’t see any signs for approximately 500 metres, he should go back to find again the respective sign. Common sense should prevail.

2.5. Time limit

- MIUT® - Madeira Island Ultra-Trail® is an event that integrates four single stage races, with a maximum time limit.

- Time barriers are calculated to allow participants to reach the finish line within the time limit imposed, already accounting for the possible stops (rest, supplies, etc.). All the aid stations will have time barriers.

- To be allowed to continue in the race, participants must leave each check point before its closure, otherwise they will be prevented from proceeding and, consequently, will be disqualified.

- Any participant excluded from the race who wishes to continue, can only do so by delivering a portion of the race bib, detachable for this effect, pursuing on his own responsibility and in complete autonomy.

- For reasons of force majeure (weather and/or security), the organization reserves the right to change the time barriers.

2.6. Timing system operation

- An electronic system will be used to control the passage of the athletes on the check points. In each check point there will be an electronic station which shall record the passage of the athletes.

- The race bib of each athlete will have an electronic chip (tag), which will be used for the registration of the passage of the athletes. There will also be another tag on the backpack or similar equipment of the athlete.

- In addition to the electronic control at the aid stations, there will also be an electronic / manual check-in control at security stations that will be placed at some strategic points along the course.

- The starting area will delimited with metal barriers. The participants are obliged to enter in this area using the indicated entrance for chip checking. No athlete can enter the start zone without his chip being checked.

- In the area of departure a clock begins counting at the established time, with or without the presence of the participants. Participants who are not present until 15 minutes after the departure time or that are beyond this period, will be prevented from starting and, as such, will not be classified.

2.7. Check points

- The check points are compulsory passage points and are located in areas outlined by the organization. In each of these controls there will be a responsible person from the organization.

- Not passing in one or more checkpoints will lead to the disqualification of the participant.

- During the race there may be "surprise" check points to ensure full compliance to the route. Their position, obviously, will not be previously posted by the organization.

- Retirements must be done only and exclusively on check points. In the event of an accident or injury by which the participant is immobilized and unable to reach a check point, he must activate the rescue operation, by contacting the organization.

- The contact number of the organization, for emergency purposes, will be printed on the race bib of the participant and should also be recorded in advance in the participant's mobile phone.

- The organization reserves the right to modify at any time the route and position of the check/supply points, without notice. In the event of adverse weather conditions at the start, the start may be delayed by up to two hours, after which period, the race is cancelled. There will be no right to reimbursement.

- During the race, in case of bad weather, and for security reasons, the organization reserves the right to modify the time barriers, or to suspend, reduce, neutralize or stop the race. There will be no right to reimbursement.

2.8. Location of the Aid Stations

- The aid stations will provide participants with food and drink to be consumed on the premises. Although other drinks will be available on site, only water will be provided to fill the tanks and other containers of the participants.

- There will be first aid positioned in all aid stations. It is crucial that participants help any person in distress, alert the nearest control post and/or contact the organization.

- Participants must abide by the decisions of specialized medical personnel.
