Frequently asked questions

When will the competition area be disclosed?
The base camp of the contest, i.e. the start / finish point will be communicated on the website and on the Facebook page of the event immediately after the registration closure.

Will it be possible to camp with the tent in the base camp?
Yes, free of charge. The tent camps will be separated according to the race in which they participate, and the fans will be camped in another nearby location, but we cannot guarantee that those places will be also free of charge.

When will the race maps be handed over?
The race maps will be handed out during the technical meeting, which will be attended only by the team captains. The technical meeting will be held 12 hours before the start..

Are the maps waterproof?
NO! The organizers provide several A3 maps printed on glossy paper, along with a "Ziplock" bag

Are there rest periods, breaks?
There is no mandatory rest time, it is up to each team if and when it takes a break.

Will there be feeding / drinking stations?
There will be no feeding stations, all food for the race will have to be caried by the team, and / or bought from the roadside shops (if applicable).
There will be hydration stations only if there are no drinking springs near the transition areas or the checkpoints. There will be no disposable cups in these stations, but the personal containers of the teams will be used.

Will the race also include trail running?
ProPark Adventure is a multidisciplinary endurance competition that takes place in teams of four people each. Among the race trials there will certainly be a trekking leg that can be treated as a trail running event, but it will have to be completed together with all the teammates and carrying on you all the mandatory equipment of the corresponding trial. The ProPark Adventure race means that all the competition challenges are completed by all team members.

There will be a chip-based timing?
No, the timing will be done with the help of the Time-iT, and the rankings can be tracked online, being updated periodically.  
What kind of bikes can be used?
Any type of bicycle can be used as long as they have no other source of propulsion besides the power of the user.

Is it allowed to use clipless pedals and shoes (SPD pedals and shoes)?
Yes, as long as they are carried by the competitors or will always be attached to the bicycles.

What kind of equipment can be transported by the organizers in one of the checkpoints where a break can take place?
Sleeping bags, sleeping pads / mattresses, tents. Water will be provided in these stations, but not food.
Is it allowed to use GPS devices?
Since most mobile phones also have GPS functions, it is difficult for us to ban their use in the competition, because we cannot monitor this matter. However, we suggest that they should be used only if the team does not find a way to reach the next checkpoint or when they cannot identify their correct location on the map, thus avoiding premature battery discharge. The race organizers will not provide GPS data but only physical in-print maps, so the use of GPS devices will be done at your own risk.

Why does the distance vary so much?
The distance covered in the competition varies widely depending on the chosen routes chosen. For example, if from one checkpoint to another a team chooses to follow a road (fire-road or even a paved road), it can cover a distance of 10-30 km longer compared to the direct route on a mountain trail.

Is the route imposed?
No, the route is up to the teams choice, as they have to go through all the checkpoints in the order established by the organizers.

What is the distance distribution for each trial?
Routes measure approximately:
- 65% MTB
- 30% Trekking
- 5% Other challenges
Be careful! These percentages refer to the distances of the challenges, while their duration will measure different percentages, difficult to estimate or generalize.
It is mandatory to have a mixed gender team?
Teams must have at least one girl. All-female teams can be formed, but not all-male teams.

Are there any tests for only some team members?
No. All members take part in all the race tests. These challenges are designed with a low level of difficulty and in case of failure to perform a challenge by one of the team members, there will be a time penalty for the team, by adding extra time to the finish time of the race, specific to each challenge.
