Don't forget to bring the following equipment: * Mobile phone with roaming enabled - memorize the following numbers: ** Race organization phone +389 71 246 423 (in case of drop-outs and getting lost) ** SOS mountain rescue phone +389 13-112 (in case of a medical emergency & rescue) * BIB number must be placed at the front of your body, on your t-shirt or shorts or a belt. Do not place the bib number on your running pack/vest - chances are it may not be validated by the electronic timing system! * Running with another runner's bib number - immediate disqualification. * Emergency blanket - it's a life-saver in case of hypothermia and freezing weather!!! * You need to bring your own drinking cup (15 cL minimum). There will be no plastic cups at aid stations, so each runner must provide their own even at the finish area. * You must carry additional batteries or an additional head lamp (100K and 60K races). * The waterproof jacket (10,000mm+) must have a hood and taped seams. * Basic first aid kit is consisted of at least of a gauze, an elastic bandage and a packet of plasters. * Long trousers or leggings, which fully cover your skin (due to bad weather may be included in the mandatory gear). * Additional warm middle layer, which covers your arms in full (due to bad weather may be included in the mandatory gear).
