Time measurement by the event organiser (race result - Andreas Mayr). Each participant receives an ActivePro v2 transponder that must be worn on the body. After the finish, this transponder must be handed back, without exception.
We place great emphasis on fairness at the Koasa March in Ebbs. Anyone who behaves unsportsmanlike (e.g. shortcutting, disregard of the official instructions or leaving the marked routes) will be disqualified without exception by the race director.
By registering to enter the competition, each participant agrees to the conditions of the competition. We expressly point out that sections of the routes are in alpine terrain and each runner must therefore be aware of the risk of injury when falling. We assume no liability for theft or other damage claims. Each participant enters the competition at his or her own risk. In particular, each participant is responsible for his or her physical fitness.
