Every high school will be able to register a boy’s, a girl’s and a mixed team; each of them formed by a maximum of eight (8) participants, with the option of including two (2) teachers or members of the educational community. It is not compulsory to reach the number of eight competitors in every team. The minimum number of members in each team is five (5). In that case, only one teacher can be included in the squad.
The groups will have free transport if the high school registers three complete teams (boys, girls and mixed). This means eight (8) members in each team adding up to twenty-four (24) registered contestants. We can offer a limited service of transportation so only the first registered centres will have access to that service. Therefore, we recommend all the high schools to formalize the inscriptions as soon as possible. Once the registration process is completed, there will not be the opportunity of making any changes of the team members, unless they are justified for medical reasons. This justification must be presented to the race organization before May 1st to the e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org with the doctor’s certificate attached. After that day, no further changes will be accepted, and the participant’s place will remain vacant.
The race bibs will be distributed at the same day of the race from 8:30 am until 9:45 am in a space set up for it, next to the starting and finish line in Plaza de la Música. The bib numbers will only be handed to the delegate of each high school, identified as such in the team’s registration.
The runners will go to the call rooms at 10:15 am with their numbers on their chest. The race will start at 10:30 am and will have a duration of 45 minutes and the control of arrivals will close at 11:15 am. The race will be supervised by the judges of the FIAGC and an electronic timing system that will be place in the starting/finish line and the further point of the Paseo de Las Canteras, so as to control that all the participants run the complete circuit.
There will be one starting signal at the starting/finish arch located next to Plaza de la Música. The runners will complete the course through the Paseo de las Canteras with 1.5 straight kilometres, a turnaround and the return to the finish line. The route will be marked.
In the finish area there will have to be at least a delegate of every high school to receive the students when they arrive. The delegate will be accredited by the organization before the race bibs distribution. Without this accreditation, he or she will not be allowed to access the finish area.
At the end of the race, there will be three different rankings: all-boys teams, all-girls teams and mixed teams.
- The results will be calculated in the following way: the sum of the times of the 5 better runners (only one of them can be a high school teacher). In the case of mixed teams, the 5 counting members must be 2 boys and 3 girls or 3 boys and 2 girls.
- Only the teams with at least 5 finishers will appear in the Final General Ranking.
- The best three teams in each category will receive an award.
The organization will offer a provisioning service in the finish line.
