CUT OFF TIMES
For security reasons, some cut off time have been established. As a general rule, if the “Green Flag” motorcycle of the Guardia Civil overtakes a participant, he/she will be automatically left out of the course, so they must give their plate to the organization and may continue under their own responsibility and respecting the traffic circulation laws. Participants who finish outside the cut off times will be considered finishers and will also have a medal and access to pasta party.
