A protest fee of 62 € must be paid at the time when the protest is submitted. The protest fee will be returned if the protest is decided in favor of the protesting party.
It is forbidden to throw away rubbish of any kind outside the marked service areas. The abandoning of the race track is not allowed due to reasons of nature protection. The track of the Gsiesertal Lauf runs along the wonderful nature. The event is also a Going Green Event.
This is why it is very important to the organiser to respect the conversation of nature and environment. Necessary measures, like sufficient waste disposal points, will facilitate the observance of these rules.
By signing and submitting the registration form, the participant, in agreement with the representative of his/her team, certifies the absence of any disciplinary measures, whether civil and/or criminal, or ongoing investigations against him/her on account of actions related to doping, and states that s/he has not taken – and is not taking – any substances appearing on the anti-doping list held by FISI, CONI or the World Anti-Doping Agency (WADA) (http://www.wadaama.org/Documents/World_Anti-Doping_Program/WADP-Prohibited-list/2013/WADA-Prohibited-List-EN.pdf). Any false certification will be prosecuted in accordance with the law. In the event of a negative result in the anti-doping controls carried out at the Granfondo Val Casies 2019, or of a positive result established in the 6 (six) months following the Granfondo Val Casies Nordic Ski Marathon, the participant must, in compensation for the serious prejudice caused to the image of the event, pay the Organising Committee a sum of €50,000 (fifty thousand euros). If the participant belongs to a sports club, the club will be obliged to pay the fine. The money will be donated to developing youth sports activities.
