The ZMR provides special catering for the athletes, supporting them in many intermediate points of the route. The Main Refreshment and Support Stations offer a variety of dietary options, while the Secondary Support Stations offer the required minimum refreshment options. More about the refreshment stations (click here). More about the Refreshment stations (click here).
MANDATORY & RECOMMENDED EQUIPMENT
Mandatory equipment for all races (10km, 21km, 44km & 80km)
Athletes of all races (10km, 21km & 44km) must bring a cup or a mug for drinks at the stations (water, soft drinks, etc.)
The Organizing Committee does not provide drinking cups at the Refreshment stations.
Mandatory TeRA 80km equipment
Especially for the TeRA 80km, all athletes must carry this mandatory equipment during the race.
- Aluminum blanket
- Headlamp + batteries
- Mini pharmacy
- Mobile phone
Each athlete has the right to carry the equipment he considers necessary to cope with the difficulties of the race. The Organizing Committee reserves the right to carry out random checks for the completeness of the equipment both at the start and during the race.
The Organizing Committee will assist the athletes, with the transport and delivery of a Supply Bag (drop-bag) at the “Papigo” Station and at the finish. The Organizing Committee recommends a minimum equipment, the so-called “Survival Gear”, which is absolutely necessary for an athlete competing for 20 consecutive hours.
The recommended package of “Survival Gear” consists of the following:
- Waterproof jacket
- Water container (of the athlete’s choice), with a content of at least 500ml of liquids
- Solid food
To the above equipment, each athlete can add vital medications that they may need, as well as other practical items, such as: gaiters, fluid cup, walking stick, sun hat, gloves, electrolyte preparation, etc.
Optional equipment for all races (10km, 21km, 44km & 80km)
For all competitions, however, it is recommended that they carry a small backpack or waist pack with some basic supplies, such as:
- bag or pouch with a wide mouth,
- solid food of their choice to meet their needs in between stations.
Each athlete is responsible for choosing the container (cup, container, pouch, bottle, mug, etc.) that he must bring, so that he can receive the right amount of fluids. Liquid quantities will be offered with a practical dispenser by Refreshment Station staff.
In order to avoid any possible delay in the Refreshment Stations, athletes should have containers with a wide opening for quick filling. Athletes are responsible for carrying one or two containers to receive water and isotonic separately.
Carrying hydration packs or backpacks or waist packs in general is allowed. Leaving a backpack along the route at the central Refreshment stations is the responsibility of the athlete.
- injury from falling in the dark due to lack of a flashlight
- hypothermia due to lack of appropriate clothing
- dehydration due to the absence of a water container
Every athlete has the right to deliver one (1) “supply bag”, which they will receive at the Papigo Main Support Station. However the athletes of the TeRA 80km race are entitled to carry a personal second bag (preferably of waterproof material) with all the necessary equipment for the race (food, clothing, etc). Please do take into consideration that sharp objects (knives, forks, etc) are prohibited to avoid damage to other stored materials and bags.
The ZMR undertakes the responsibility to transfer the drop bags to the Papigo Main Support Station. Once the athletes pass from this point, the drop bags will be carried to the finishing line, so that the athletes can collect them there. The ZMR is not responsible for any damage to the stored materials in the drop bag. A special tag bringing on the athlete’s BIB number will be given to the athletes, in order to place it on the bag itself.
TERA 80km & Marathon+ 44km athletes must delivered their drop bags shortly before the start of the race (Tsepelovo High School).
