Participation in the Trail leads to unreserved acceptance of these regulations and the ethics of the trail race. The ethics trail provides: respect for nature, avoiding harmful cuts of paths and not throwing waste along the way, respect for volunteers, who work for free for your pleasure and safety, the obligation to rescue athletes in difficulty. For us, ethics trail is a point of honor, not respecting it is unforgivable and will result in immediate disqualification. The event adheres to the “I don’t throw waste” project promoted by Spirito Trail.
