Art. 5.- Runner's Fair / Collection of race bibs / Authorizations:

Collection of bibs:

  1.

The parking of the shopping center is free on Friday from 14h and throughout Saturday. If you come on Friday before 14h it will also be free when you present your race bib before leaving.
  2. If unable to attend, the registrant may authorize another person to pick it up on their behalf, for which it will be necessary to submit a photocopy of your ID card or supporting document (driver's license, passport), signed authorization and proof of registration. You can present the image of any of the above documents on your cell phone. It is not necessary to present it on paper.
  3. The delivery of dorsal-chip and t-shirts, but in no case the runner's bag, will be provided on the same day of the race, next to the checkroom tents until 60 min. before the start of the race.
    IMPORTANT: Only for runners who come from outside Valencia and metropolitan area and can justify it with documents. After that time, the race bibs will be closed and therefore it will be impossible to withdraw the bibs not collected until that time. Once the race is over, the uncollected bibs will NOT be delivered, neither the T-shirt nor the details that may be included in the runner's bag.

Changes to your registration/refund/insurance information: 

  1. You will be able to change your registration details, except for your name, surname and ID number, until 18 December 2022 (23:59h), free of charge, in your "Private Area".
  2. You can ask for a refund of your registration fee in case you cannot run only if you have taken out, during the registration process, the insurance offered by the Organisation, which only costs €2. In case you take it out, you can ask for a full refund of your registration including the solidarity contribution and the RFEA licence (except for the platform management fees: 0,60€) as long as you do it up to 48h before the start of the race.

Insurance information: The cancellation insurance that the 5K Valencia Vamos offers to the participants is a Europ Assistance insurance that will reimburse 100% of the amount paid for your registration (except for the 0'60€ administration fee) if any of the 28 reasons for cancellation are fulfilled. Here is the list:

  1. https://www.servicover.com/seguroCancelacion/seguroCancelacion.pdf

You can make use of it from the moment of registration until 48 hours before the event starts. The participant must send to this email address reembolsostecnicos@europ-assistance.es (also copying to info@10kvalencia.com) the proof of registration, that of a professional or competent entity that, depending on the nature of the reason, justifies the non-attendance to the event.

In the subject/body of the email the participant must identify himself/herself with his/her ID/passport number, Registration ID, full name and state the event 5K Valencia Vamos 2023, as an attachment, the two documents mentioned above.

If you do not take out this €2 insurance, it is not possible to change the ownership of your registration and you will lose the amount paid. The new runner can register from scratch as long as there are bibs available and at the price in force at the time.

In any case, if you can't run and someone wants to run for you and there are no more bibs available at that moment, you can/can go to the Runner’s Expo, stand "Solutions", and make the change of ownership with an extra cost of 10€. But only if there are NO bibs available for that new runner.

The important thing is that no one runs with your bib, let's be responsible as the insurance implications are more serious than they seem.

Solidarity Contribution: The different registration sections will have the possibility of making a SOLIDARITY CONTRIBUTION with a voluntary increase of 3€, 5€ or 10€, amount that the Organization will donate in full on behalf of all participants who choose this option to Runners for Ethiopia.

Cloakroom: On the day of the race there will be a free cloakroom. It will be located next to La Pergola Kiosk, as in previous editions, and will be available from 8:00 am. Remember to take your cloakroom sticker that we will give you when you pick up your race bib.

NOTICE:

The organization will demand the full restitution of any athlete's prize money if the RFEA or World Athletics cancels his or her sport results due to a doping sanction in the race specific doping controls, or even subsequently due to an anomaly in the Athlete Biological Passport, regardless of the athlete not having tested positive in the race specific doping controls. Any athlete, or failing that World Athletics Manager, who accepts a financial award automatically assumes this condition to ensure equality of opportunity, cleanliness and health in athletics.

Art.7.- Time control and classifications. The race is controlled by the Judges Committee of the FACV and RFEA. There will be time controls along the course. Only those participants who run the race with the chip provided by the Organization, placed on the back of the race bib, will appear in the classification, obliging the runner in any case to check the proper functioning of the chip in the corresponding stand at the Runner's Fair.

Art.8.- Infringements and disqualifications:

8.1 The bibs/chip given by the Organization are personal and non-transferable, and must be placed on the chest without manipulation or folding. The control chip is also personal and non-transferable. Failure to comply with this article will be cause for disqualification.

Runners who are not registered or who run without a race bib will not be admitted by the Organisation, preventing them from having access to the race in defence of the rights of those who are legally registered.

Likewise, unauthorised vehicles will not be allowed access, for the safety of the runners, the judges of the race and the organisers reserve the right to disqualify any offender who, if any irregularity is detected by a runner; does not wear a visible number, manipulates it and/or transfers it to another, alters the data provided to the Organization or to the Referee with respect to what appears on his/her ID card or federative card, does not complete the entire course, shows poor physical condition, does not provide the Organization with the required documentation or fails to comply with any other rule contemplated in the FACV, RFEA and World Athletics Regulations.

For legal and sporting reasons, but above all for security reasons, it will not be possible to sell or transfer the bib to another runner. Given the risk run by those who carry a bib without the knowledge of the organisation and the distortion produced in the classifications, the details of the person who gives or sells a bib will be noted, preventing their registration in successive years, and informing other marathon, half marathon and 10K organisations of their actions. In the case of athletes federated to the Royal Spanish Athletics Federation (RFEA) and the Athletics Federation of the Valencian Community, their conduct will also be reported so that, if appropriate, the corresponding measures can be taken.

The organization reserves the right to prevent registration in the future and to inform other races of the procedure of those athletes disqualified for not having completed the entire 5 kilometers of the course.

It will be compulsory for members of the federation to compete with the clothing of their corresponding club, and they may be sanctioned if they do not.
Disqualified runners will not be eligible for prizes and trophies.

8.2 It is not allowed (in application of Art. 144 of the RIA) to run accompanied by persons not participating in the same, whether on foot or in any type of vehicle, or carry children in arms or in strollers, nor is it allowed to run with animals, carts, etc.. This prohibition extends to the entire race and especially at the finish line, being its non-observance grounds for possible disqualification by the referee.

8.3 Given the serious damage that this would cause to the Organization and the other runners of the race, in case of access to the race in violation of the established conditions of access or any irregularity is committed, the Organization reserves the right to take appropriate action, in accordance with the applicable legislation. In this sense, the corresponding civil, criminal or administrative actions will be initiated to demand the responsibility of the offender.

Among the irregularities that will give rise to the initiation of such actions are:

  1. Not being registered in the race and, therefore, not having a bib/chip to participate in the race.
  2. Running with the bib/chip of a third party (without having carried out the change of ownership or carrying it concealed).
  3. Running with a bib/chip that does not correspond to the race bib/chip.
  4. Running with a forged bib/chip (photocopied document or document imitating the bib).

This list is given by way of example and is not exhaustive, and there may be other irregularities that may give rise to legal action on the part of the Organisation.

Both those who commit such irregularities and those who assist them in carrying them out will be identified as "offending brokers".

Those runners who are identified as "offending runners" by the Organisation on the day of the race, will be removed, identified and expelled by the race security personnel, in the exercise of their powers, obtaining identification data from them; photographs, etc., which will be used for the purpose of taking the corresponding legal action.

In the event that the infringement becomes known after the event has taken place, appropriate action shall be taken at the time the infringement becomes known.

The "offending brokers" shall be notified and/or summoned to the proceedings in which their potential liabilities will be judged, in order to be part of the proceedings.

Art.9.- The course will be properly signposted by the organization and there will be a liquid refreshment post in the post-finish area.

Art.10.- The medical services and ambulances, coordinated by the medical team of the 5K VALENCIA VAMOS 2023, will be located at the start/finish area and closing the race together with the broom car. Additional ambulances will be located along the course to ensure the urgent transfer in case of need.

Any runner with medical problems (allergy, special attention, etc.) must state this on the back of the race bib or in the "Observations" section when registering. They can also inform the organisers at the "Solutions" desk at the Runner’s Expo and at the start of the race up to a few minutes before the start of the race.

Art.11.- The only vehicles allowed to follow the race will be those authorized by the organization and will be properly marked.

Art.12.- During the race the dorsal-chip shall be worn on the front, visibly and without folding. Failure to comply with this article will be cause for disqualification.

Art.13.- The Organization reserves the right to establish flying goals at any time, always more than two days in advance, and undertakes to notify all participants of their placement and the exact kilometric point.

Art.14. Disqualifications:

a) The medical service of the competition and the referees are empowered to withdraw during the race any athlete who shows a bad physical condition.

b) Any athlete who does not complete the entire course.

c) Any athlete who does not wear a visible dorsal-chip or who folds it.

d) The athlete who demonstrates unsportsmanlike behavior or reiterates protests to the Organization outside the provisions of Article 8 of the Rules.

Art.15.- Complaints must be made orally to the Judge Referee of the race, no later than 30 minutes after the official announcement of the results. If they are rejected by the Judge Referee, a written complaint may be lodged together with a deposit of 100€. If there is no Jury of Appeal the decision of the Chief Referee is final.

Art.16.- All participants, by the fact of starting the race, accept these regulations, and in case of doubt or if any situation arises that is not reflected in these regulations, the Organising Committee will decide what to do.

Art.17.- The inscriptions already paid, as well as the bibs, are personal and non-transferable, and must be placed on the chest without manipulation or folding. The registration fee will not be refundable in any case.

Only in the event that the race has to be postponed or suspended due to force majeure and beyond the organization's control (including health regulations), the organization will offer all registered participants the possibility of keeping the registration for the new date or requesting a refund of the registration fee. The latter option of requesting a refund of the money will carry a cost of 3 € as a management fee.

Runners who are not registered or run without a race bib will not be admitted by the Organisation, preventing them from having access to the race in defence of the rights of those who are legally registered. Likewise, "unauthorised" vehicles will not be allowed access, for the safety of the runners.

The judges of the race and the organisers reserve the right to disqualify any runner who, if any irregularity is found by any runner, does not wear a visible race bib, manipulates it and/or transfers it to another runner, alters the data provided to the organisers or the Referee with respect to what appears on their ID card or federation card, not completing the entire course, manifesting a poor physical condition, not providing the Organisation with the required documentation, failing to comply with any other rule contemplated in the Rules of the FACV, RFEA and World Athletics.

Art. 18.- Participants authorize Divina Pastora Seguros, Mutua de Seguros (hereinafter, Divina Seguros) to receive commercial and advertising communications regarding products, services, offers and news, as well as for the contracting of products and services of the same. These communications may be sent by any means, including electronic.
