The route is classified with the blue dot: “E” (excursion itinerary, an itinerary that almost always takes place on paths or on various terrain (pastures, debris, stony ground) with signs, which sometimes develop on open but not difficult terrain. It can take place on steep slopes).

The route is tentatively composed as follows:

  • 30% path;
  • dirt road 65%;
  • asphalt or cemented road 5%.

The kilometers are not marked.

Competitors must strictly respect the marked race route, avoiding exiting paths or tracks, taking short cuts or cutting sections of the track.

Competitors are required to respect the highway code, in particular in sections where the route follows and / or crosses the ordinary road network, which will remain open to vehicular traffic.

There may be checks not announced on the regular transit.
The route will be marked with flags, balises, arrows, signs, reflectors and other measures that will be indicated on the site www.granraid.it or at the start. Normally, immediately after each junction, crossing or similar you must find a confirmation of the route. If the confirmation is not found it is preferable to go back. There may be volunteers at the most delicate crossings but their presence in all points is not guaranteed.

In case of important weather events (for example: thick fog, snow, strong storms), the organization reserves the right to make changes at the last minute in order to eliminate potential dangers or conditions of serious discomfort for the participants.

Any changes will be communicated to the participants and reported by the staff. The organization reserves itself moreover, in the event of bad weather conditions and / or for reasons of safety, the right to suspend or interrupt the current trial, delay the departure, change the route or change the timetable.

On the path will be present employees of the organization in contact with the race direction, via radio link.

Along the way there will be relief posts designed to bring assistance to all people in danger, with the means of the organization or through partner organizations. Official doctors are authorized to suspend competitors deemed unfit to continue the race.

The route is in many places inaccessible to vehicles: the competitor in difficulty can be reached on foot by the rescue personnel or by the volunteers of the organization.

Rescuers are authorized to evacuate competitors judged in danger by all means of their own convenience. In case of need, in the interest of the rescued person, only and exclusively at the discretion of the organization, the official aid will be called, which will take over the operations and will put in place all appropriate means, including the helicopter. Any expenses deriving from the use of these exceptional means will be borne by the person rescued according to the regulations in force.

For this reason, the competitors evaluate a personal insurance that covers any costs for the transport by helicopter.

A competitor who appeals to a doctor or a rescuer submits de facto to his authority and agrees to comply with his decisions.

On the path there will be at least one ambulance in contact with the helicopter, ready to intervene.

Competitors must behave in a manner that respects the environment, in particular avoiding flowers, damaging the flora or harassing the fauna.

The removal from the official track, as well as involving the disqualification from the race, will take place at the sole risk and danger of the competitor.
