Art.6. COLLECTION OF BIBS / AUTHORIZATIONS.

You can present the image of any of the above documents on your cell phone. It is not necessary to present it on paper.

6.3. DELIVERY OF DORSALS ON THE DAY OF THE RACE: Only for runners who come from outside Valencia and metropolitan area and can justify it with documents. The delivery will take place in the starting area until 08:30h (60 min. before the start of the race). After that time, the race bibs will be closed and therefore it will be impossible to withdraw the bibs not collected until that time. 

Art.7. OUTLETS AND DRAWERS. 

7.1. Outlets and drawers.

The maximum duration of the race for each participant will be 1 hour and 20 minutes (80 minutes) from the time of departure.

The organization will enable a first start for elite athletes at 09:30 hours, which will be followed by a total of 12 more exits to facilitate the proper development of the test. Also, the first exits will be made by both roads of the Paseo de La Alameda. 

The decision to make several starts does not affect in any case the complete and correct timing of all athletes, whatever the start, being each of the shots considered as a new official time. The organization reserves the right to carry out a different number of starts and/or reorganize them if for safety, organizational and/or logistical reasons, it is considered. 

All runners will be informed of their starting time and their assigned starting box when they pick up their race bib at the Race Fair, where this information will be displayed.

7.2. Compulsory mark accreditation for U36 runners.

In order to manage in the best possible way the starts and to place each runner with those of a similar level, we carry out a verification of the data collected after registration for those who aspire to the first drawers. 

All runners who register with the objective of finishing under 36 minutes must prove their previous best time in any of the above distances through the procedure available on the registration website. Failure to comply with this requirement or the impossibility to confirm it will result in the assignment to the last start.

In the registration process, additional information will be requested with a URL or link to an approved race of 5K, 10K, 15K or Half Marathon distance where you have participated since January 1, 2023 with an equivalent mark or if not available, with the name, edition and mark made in recent approved 5K, 10K, 15K or Half Marathon races.

VERY IMPORTANT: All runners, based on their accredited or predicted time during the registration process, will be assigned a specific start time. If, in spite of all the measures taken by the organization, the runner does not comply with this rule by leaving before the time assigned to him/her, he/she will be automatically disqualified by the chip configuration of his/her bib.

7.3. Change of starting box.

As a general rule, the starting box will be assigned automatically according to the mark that has been accredited or the expected mark that you have indicated in the registration process, under the above premises. The process is carried out by dividing the total number of registered participants by the number of starts to be made, so in no case the participants choose the start at the time of registration.

If the runner wishes to start from a slower starting box, it is not necessary to make any change, since he/she can start the race in any of the later starts, by accessing it on the day of the race.

If, once registered, the runner improves his/her predicted or accredited mark and wishes to start from a faster box, the request for a change of predicted or accredited mark will be possible until December 10, 2024 (23:59h). To do so, the runner must write an email to admin@10kvalencia.com requesting such change and providing the required documentation. It will be obligatory to provide documentary justification of the change by means of a link in an approved race carried out by the interested party as of January 1, 2023 and based on the above-mentioned criteria. After December 11, 2024, no changes will be possible, not even at the Race Fair.

7.4. NO CHANGES MAY BE MADE TO FASTER BOXES AT THE RACE FAIR.

Each runner will be placed in the corresponding box according to his/her assigned bib, in order to facilitate the smooth running of the race and that all participants can run comfortably. We appeal to the good will of those registered when determining their expected time, which will be a benefit for all.

Thus, every runner assumes the responsibility and commitment to accept his starting line-up at the time of registration and to prove his personal best records.

Therefore, the athlete accepts that the drawer or start selected at the time of registration will be the one that corresponds to him/her. With the exceptions foreseen in the previous paragraphs. 

Art.8. CHECKROOM AND REFRESHMENTS.

8.1. On the day of the race, a free checkroom will be available from 07:30 am. Runners will be informed of its exact location before the race. Remember to take your checkroom sticker that will be given to you when you pick up your race bib.
