RESCUE AND MEDICAL ASSISTANCE
First aid posts are positioned at check points . A medical control team is present during the entire duration of the event at the start/finish area. If it appears that a runner is in difficulty or seriously injured, it is essential that each runner helps anybody in danger and alerts the first aid point. Due to the difficulty of access of certain locations, one might have to wait for assistance for longer than anticipated. 

DROP BAGS
You may drop a bag at the start that you will collect at the finish.

DROPPING OUT OF THE RACE
Except for injury, a runner must not retire anywhere else other than at the check point. He must therefore inform the person in charge of the post, who definitively invalidates his race bib.
