3-day Challenge Rules 三日挑戰賽賽例

3-day challenge

The spirit of the 3-day challenge is to simulate a typical international multi-stage race, self-supported style. Organizer provides Shelter and water, and the runner needs to carry mandatory equipment, sufficient freeze-dry food and other race essentials along the race. Due to the proximity of shops and urban setting of Hong Kong, we heavily rely on your adherence to the key rules in order to provide you a full simulation to what a self supported race feels like in the deserts and the jungles.

 

The key rules are –

  1. Runner should rely on their own food source. Food at CP are designated for V162 and single-day race runners; CP staff would not provide food to a 3-day challenge runner at CP other than water and boiled water. To fair to all runners who rely on their own food supply which they carried during the race, any 3-day challenge runners obtaining food from CPs would result in a time penalty of 1-hour per infraction.

  2. To self-sustain a 162km race, a Runner should stock a minimum of 4000 calories at the start of day 1 and 2000 calories on day 2. The food stock along with other mandatory equipment would be checked prior to race start by race marshall, who would stop any runners without sufficient food from starting the race.

  3. No need to carry personal shelter. Tents accommodating 8-12 people would be provided by the organizer at each campsite. For safety and hygenic reason, runners must carry one sleeping equipment (sleeping bag that suits 10’c and above, portable mattress or equivalent).

  4. Once checked into campsite, racers are not allowed to leave campsite (except for accessing toilets on Day 2 campsite); doing so without the consent of campsite staff will be considered DNF.

  5. As the spirit of the 3-day challenge race is self-sufficiency, racers are not allowed to receive outside assistance; while it is impossible for the race organizer to verify, runners are encouraged to refrain from buying food and beverages from stores along the race route. Infractions, if proven, would result in the same penalty as consuming food provided at CPs.

3日挑戰賽特別規例

 

本賽事特設3日賽挑戰組, 是為各選手提供一個準備參加國際規格的多日賽前, 一個模擬的自給自足負重比賽經驗. 大會提供終點營帳及冷熱水供補給及沖泡脫水食物, 除此之外, 跑手需要自行揹負睡袋, 足夠之脫水食物乾糧, 以及其他賽事所需物資完成賽事. 因為地理環境所限, 香港多日賽難免穿梭於城市及經過商店, 為了準確模擬國外極地, 沙漠, 雨林間不可能外間補給的經驗, 請您耐心自律, 並遵從以下之規定.

 

針對3 日賽挑戰組的特別規例為:

 

  1. 3 日賽挑戰組跑手只能以自携食物補給, 除大會提供之冷熱水之外, 禁止食用於檢查站及每日終點內, 供V162及單日賽所用之食物. 志工按號碼布識別跑手, 亦已知悉有關規則. 為對其他恪守規則負重的跑手公平, 若3日賽跑手不得已必須使用賽會食物, 將會按每一次使用罰時最少1小時.
     

  2. 為能完成自給自足三日賽, 跑手必需在第一日起步時有4,000 大卡之食物, 及在第二日起步時有2000大卡之食物隨身, 大會工作人員會於第一及第二日起步前檢查, 如食物量不足, 賽會將禁止該跑手起步.
     

  3. 跑手無需揹負帳幕, 大會將在營地提供8-12人之帳蓬供跑手過夜. 為安全及衛生起見, 跑手必需帶備禦寒10度以上睡袋或地蓆供帳篷內睡眠時用.
     

  4. 到達營地後, 為跑手安全及為比賽公平起見, 跑手將禁止離開營地 (因設施問題, 第二日終點往洗手間除外)  , 如未得大會許可離開營地將視作棄賽論.
     

  5. 自給自足的3 日挑戰賽不可接受外間支援隊伍的任何支援. 而為最佳模擬效果, 儘管賽會無法全程監察, 我們仍要求跑手避免在沿途商店進食. 如有發現, 亦按取用CP食物一致標準, 罰時處理.
