Safety information &
Compulsory equipment

Safety information:

Skyrunning- & Trail running events take place in the outdoors and through nature conservation areas along already existing tracks, paths, forestry tracks, gravel roads, and on public and private roads. Highways rules must be adhered to, and in the case of 2-way traffic, runners should stay on the left-hand side. Crossing public highways and private property should be done in an orderly fashion. Any unfair behaviour towards other runners, refusal of medical help to other runners, or any pollution of the environment will be followed by immediate disqualification by the organiser.

For environmental reasons, there will no beakers available at the checkpoints or at the refreshment points. Therefore, a beaker is on the list of the compulsory equipment to take with you. There are sufficient refreshment- & water points along the route.
If participants choose to pull out of the race, they are responsible for organising their own transport back to the start/finish area or to their accommodation. Every participant are obliged to inform the race organisers by sending a text to the organisers on +43 (0) 664 1539141.

In case of emergency, participants must phone +43 (0) 664 1539141, giving details of the emergency. The event organisers will then inform the relevant mountain rescue service.

The event organiser and his team are responsible for the general safe running of the race, and any instructions given by members of the organising team, mountain guides, services, doctors, first aiders, marshals, and any staff manning the checkpoints/refreshment points are to be followed. If, on the part of the event organisers, a participant is deemed by medical staff to be in no fit healthy condition, then he/she may be pulled out of the race.


Qualification:

As the Schlegeis Skyrace and Trailrun is a high Alpine and very technical trail and the trail also goes over very rocky climbs, participants are required to have a suitable amount of experience of running Speed Trail, Skyraces or longer high Alpine races, and the following requirements apply:

  • no fear of heights
  • sure-footedness
  • head for heights
  • a high level of fitness
  • experience of navigation in Alpine terrain

The qualification points will be checked on a random basis by the organising team after the closing date for registration and publication of the appropriate list of results.

The minimum age requirement is 18 years.


Route marking:

IMPORTANT: marking of the route according to theInternationaler Skyrunning Föderation (ISF); The Skyrace route will be marked by an expert marking team with chalk spray, signs, bands, flags. However, there is no continual marking of the route that would render individual navigation capabilities in Alpine terrain superfluous. Especially after nightfall, in the case of heavy rain, snow, or other extreme weather conditions, the markings may disappear, be covered, or not be immediately noticeable. For this reason, all participants must have a map of the route with them.

The event organiser also provides the route of as a GPS download (Download at Trailrun Info, Skyrace Info), and it is recommended that runners take a GPS unit with them. Sadly, it can sometimes occur that markings are removed by people. The markings are taken down section by section after the last runners immediately AFTER the time limit is over. The route is then NO LONGER marked.


Medical care - EMERGENCY NUMBERS:

Medical care is ensured throughout the race. On the route are at regular intervals and at the refreshment stations security personnel (mountain rescue) help or advice you at any time.

  • International emergency number: 112
  • Emergency call Austria: 144
  • Alpine emergency call Austria: 140
