sanitary measure

In order to ensure the safety of volunteers, competitors and spectators during the 2021 edition of the Ubaye Snow Trail Salomon, the organizers are implementing the measures detailed below.

These will be strictly applied, inserted in the internal rules of the event under a dedicated article.

Competitors who do not respect these prescriptions will not take the start or will be disqualified. These measures concern the reception phase and bib distribution on Saturday and Sunday morning and Sunday races (all routes). They are thus declined for the reception, the departure area, the supplies, the arrival area.

The vaccination pass is MANDATORY to participate in sporting events.

The organizers will comply with the regulations in force and will apply the measures enacted.

only local athletes and guest and/or high-level athletes – teams).

Measures taken: competitors will be invited to present themselves by route and series of bibs in the allocated time slot (eg from 1 to 100 from 2:00 p.m. to 3:00 p.m.) in order to limit the flow and the presence in number and continuously of people on the site. Only competitors will be allowed to withdraw their bib (no accompanying person). Beforehand, all registration files must be completed and validated via the website before the collection of the bib. No medical certificate missing during registration will be accepted on site so as not to lead to an exchange and additional contact.

The time slot is extended to allow the largest discount. Communication will be carried out in this sense via the website and social networks.

Two withdrawal zones will be set up and materialized (1 for the 20 Km / 1 for the 09 Km) on either side of the room. A direction of circulation will be defined inside the building as well as in the surroundings (pedestrian access).

Ground markings to respect social distancing will be put in place. Hydro-alcoholic gel solutions will be positioned on the tables for competitors and volunteers. Volunteers will be equipped with a mask and a pair of protective gloves to hand out the bibs.

2/ Departure area:

Location: Chalet in the Nordic center of Haute Ubaye – entrance to the Bel Iscle campsite.
Date: Sunday February 14 at 10:00 a.m. for the 20 km (Elite), 10:45 a.m. for the 09 km (Discovery).

Measures taken: The top athletes (10 best men and women on the ITRA coast) will constitute a first airlock. They will be distributed on x lines (determined according to the number of starters) from
from the starting arch (see appendix location map 1). A marking on the ground will be made to materialize these lines. Then, the other runners will be positioned in a spaced out manner. The time of each competitor will be taken when passing the arch (triggering of the chip) in order to respect sporting fairness.

The two departures are spaced 45 minutes apart in order to avoid the massive regrouping of competitors and accompanying persons on the site.

Repeated reminders of barrier measures will be announced by the host at the microphone 30 minutes before each departure.

Location: Chalet of the Nordic center of Haute Ubaye – Bel Iscle campsite

Measures taken: in the case of individual and staggered arrivals, the usual protocol is simply reorganized: an airtight corridor materialized by Vauban barriers will secure the arrival of the runners between the last 200 m and until the passage of the arch. of arrival. Then, an airlock for the "finisher" batch is set up. The passage of each competitor will be delayed if necessary by a volunteer in order to allow only one runner to enter at a time. The delivery of the prize will be carried out by two volunteers wearing gloves and surgical masks. The timing tent will be separated and the access protected by Vauban barriers. The race headquarters and the infirmary will be installed in the premises of the Nordic chalet and the access is regulated.

Access to the tents hosting the supplies will be a one-way route from the end of the arrival area. Only competitors will be able to access it.

This information will be the subject of full communication via the website and social networks.

Repeated reminders of these barrier measures will be announced by the host every ¼ hour via the sound system.

The results will not be displayed on the totem in order to avoid groupings of more than 6 people and broadcast live via the FB of the event as well as on the site.
