This is very important for the management not only of the certificate but also of all the news that we will communicate to you.

Once you have completed registration and made payment, you will automatically receive an order confirmation email. We advise you to keep an eye on your spam folder because the email could end up there. If you do not receive the order notification email, don't worry, the PayPal or credit card payment receipt will constitute confirmation of registration. For any problem, contact the organization via email at: [email protected]. IMPORTANT: Save the address [email protected] among your contacts to prevent emails from ending up in spam. We can't track who receives emails. The next official communication will be sent via email in the week following the registration closing date.

When will I receive the digital guide?

The digital guide is a precious document that contains all the information that every participant needs to know about the event. This detailed document includes the starting location with the relevant pin on Google Maps, the times of the event and activities, a description of the routes, the provisional and definitive tracks, the discounts offered by the sponsors, the overnight stay agreements (if applicable), and so on.

A week before the event, in the digital guide, you will find the link to download the definitive tracks in .gpx format, which you can then insert into your GPS navigators. All this information will be available in the digital guide.
