Runners who drop out
The last group of runners is followed by a bus, which picks up all the participants who cannot or do not wish to finish the race. If, for any reason, a runner chooses to drop out, he she must walk to the closest support station or get in contact with a representative or volunteer of the Organising Committee at any point of the course. In case no medical assistance is required, the runner may a) remain on site and wait for any authorised vehicle of the Organising Committee to pick him her up and take him her to the Finish, b) remain on site and wait for the bus that follows the last group of runners and picks up those who drop out, c) proceed to the finish line at his her own responsibility.
