Both races start together, group start. We ask competitors who aspire to the podium to stand in the front rows at the start of the race. Note: in the first 3km the trail is wide, overtaking is possible. After that, the Horvat's trail starts, narrow and rocky, and leads all the way to the Schlosser mountain hut (8.2km).
For all races of the Kvarner Trails series, as well as for Risnjak Trail, no mandatory equipment is prescribed. A list of equipment that we HIGHLY RECOMMEND to all competitors regardless of the length of the race: - Whistle - Backpack or waist belt - Water bottle or Camelbak (with minimum 0.5L of water / isotonic) - Food (energy gels, bars...) - First aid kit (minimum: 1 elastic bandage, 1 bandage, 2 sterile gauze swabs, adhesive bandages/sticking plasters – different sizes) - Mobile phone (switched on, fully charged, memorized organizer’s emergency contact info) - Survival blanket - Water bottle / silicone cup
Recommended equipment / In accordance with weather conditions: - Rain/wind/sun protection clothing - Sunscreen - Spare clothes - Hat or buff - Gloves
Along with the start number (race bib) the competitor also receives a chip for electronic timing (integrated into the race bib). The race bib must be worn during the entire race, on the on the upper body, at the front, must not be covered and must be clearly visible (not allowed to wear it on the legs, on the back/backpack or on the side). - On the trail itself, as well as in the finish line, there are devices for reading the passing time of competitors. If the number is not set as we indicated, there is a high probability that the chip will not be registered, as well as the passing time / result.
aid stations / plastic cups
There are no disposable plastic cups at refreshment stations. Each competitor should have their own water bottle / silicone cup in order to be able to consume the drink found at the aid station.
REsULts & ranking
At the finish line, there will be a small screen monitor with race times and current standings. The official results will be printed and visible on the panels in the start / finish zone. You can follow the current standings, as well as the official results, online. - CURRENT STANDINGS - OFFICIAL RESULTS
Lunch will be organized at the end of the race, from 12.00 to 17.00, on the terrace and inside the restaurant of the Pansion Risnjak. You will receive lunch vouchers together with race bibs. You are kindly asked that after you finish your lunch, you free up space for competitors who have not yet had lunch. The number of tables and seats is limited.
- The race follows the marked hiking trails / red and white hiking signs. - In addition to hiking signs, the trail will be marked with red and white ribbons. - In some places (turns/intersections) the trail will be marked with TRAIL signposts. - Where there are no turns/intersections the distance between markers can be max. 100m. - At Schlosser's mountain hut (8.2km from the start) the race splits / the 30km race continues right/straight (passes to the right of the mountain hut), and the 17km race goes left (passes left of the mountain hut).
