-    40+ competitors will be awarded in their age group and also in the general classification for the distance. The competitors in M/W age groups will be awarded only depending on the general classification. For instance: Competitor, Man, first in 40+ age group at 25km Trail-running is also third from all competitors in 25km Trail. He will be awarded as 3rd in the general classification of 25km Trail, and also as 1st in the 40+ prize giving ceremony. The runner who is third in age group Men, will not be awarded as he is 4th in the general classification for the discipline.
-    Competitors in the Duathlon discipline will be awarded also in the separate trail and MTB disciplines if they are classified in the top three.

-    Signs, nylon tapes and color spray. Detailed information will be given on the technical conference on 14.04.2018 and just before every start.
-    The marking is with the color of the track. If two or more of the tracks go through the same route, there will be tape for every track. In addition, in some places you will see orange spray.
-    Tape “Attention” red-white stripes – only for dangerous parts of the route. Especially for 35km MTB – if you see it, reduce speed dramatically, and be prepared to step down from the bike.
-    The marking is quite dense – if you don’t see sign or tape in 150-200 metres, you’ve most probably missed a sign.
-    In addition, GPS-tracks are available for advance running and GPS-device usage.


-    In the tech. info page on the official site, you will find information for the position and type of the aid stations for every race.
-    The stations will be closed with nylon tapes and competitors will not be allowed to leave with plastic or paper cups
-    We hope all runners will act respectfully and protect the nature


The race can be left if you have both:
-    Contacted the organizers on the phone on your bib number
-    Returned your electronic SI-card at the finish


Data for the control  cut-off times will be published in the detailed technical information about a month before the competition.


Electronik time-measurement system will be used for Tarnovo Ultra 2019.
