Mandatory Equipment


During the month of May, the weather can change very quickly from very hot to very cold, with rain, hail or even snow! Your equipment must be suitable for facing all types of conditions and allow you to spend one or two nights outdoors, on the race route, depending on your speed of progress. In case of an incident, your equipment must also allow you to wait for the rescue team in sufficiently safe conditions.

Each participant must present their mandatory equipment — including any additional hot/cold weather kit (see lower down) activated by the organisation — before they can collect their race bib.

You must carry the mandatory equipment with you during the whole race — from start to finish — or you will be penalised. Race stewards may also check your equipment at any time during the race.

Don't forget that the equipment we request includes an essential list of basic items that each trail runner must adapt according to their own abilities. We highly recommend you to test it during training sessions under different conditions and to carry everything you need with you.

The hot weather and cold weather kits are an essential part of the mandatory equipment. Depending on the weather conditions, the organisation may ask participants to carry some additional mandatory equipment items. In this case, runners will be informed before the opening of the registration/race bib collection for their race. Each participant must then present their mandatory equipment — including any additional kit activated by the organisation — to collect their race bib.

Choose clothes that allow good protection in the mountains against cold, wind and snow, and therefore provide greater safety and ensure a better performance. All clothing must be the runner's size and must not be altered after leaving the factory.
