In the case of participation above expectations, the organizer, because of the safety of participants, reserves the right of separate starts for each route. Before start all participants must pick up the start numbers at registration service and when they finish the ride, also a gift bag.

Until around 10th kilometer the closed ride is planned, after then the drive is released. If the organizer things, that because of the safety reasons riding must be slowed down, on some danger sections he can limit the speed again. The front of the caravan will mark the appropriately labeled accompanying vehicle.

Protective helmet is mandatory. All participants must drive by the road traffic regulations. On the back side of the starting numbers there is a form for personal and contact details. Dont forget to fulfill the form, while in case of accident or injury it can be in great help for rescue services.

Participants are obligated to ride according to they physical preparedness. The participant, who overtake a vehicle with the inscription “konec maratona” – end of the marathon is considered as normal traffic participant and organizer cares no longer for his guidance and is not in organizers responsibility anymore. The same is for participants who would arbitrarily overtake vehicle marked “začetek maratona” – the start of the marathon.

Participants can be everyone who has the right to ride bicycle in trafic by the Slovenian law. These are children who are at least 8 years old and have cycling licenses, and people older than 14 years. Children from 6 to 8 years of age and children under 14 years without cycling licenses can ride a bicycle on the road only in the escort of adults. Children under 6 years of age may only ride bicycles on footpaths or in light traffic areas, so they can take part in mini marathon.

All participants are obliged to comply with all traffic regulations and ride at own risk. Declaration about that is the part of the general conditions in which the participant must agree to apply for a marathon. The organizer is not responsible for any damage caused to the materials and humans. It is necessary to recognize, that for own safety participants can do most by themselves with thoughtful and tolerant driving and with paying particular attention on more dangerous sections. Inspite the maximum engagement of the organizer to provide as safe conditions for driving as possible, you can still expect some careless and inattentive driver in traffic that could threaten the safety of the participants of the event. In certain sections the paths are narrow or is necessary sharp cornering, therefore on this sections there is special attention and careful driving required.

We call to respect the environment and the unspoiled nature, so do not throw the snacks and drinks packaging on the way. Keep it with you until outpost or the end of the route, where you can throw it in bins.

All pre-applied participants will also receive gift bags for sure. If on the day of the event a large number of applications will apply, the limited number of gift bags will be given to those who have signed up previously. It means that some of those who will apply on the day of event wont necessary get a gift bag.

The organizer reserves the right to change the content of the event also after you have already applied on the event.
