The runner can contact the incharge person at any aid station who will arrange the transport back to base.
It is a huge risk to miss a mandatory medical check point. We will let you know beforehand at what km aid station is it located. A 30 minute penalty will be levied at the very next aid station.
we will have ambulance facilities as well as paramedics with first aid kits and stretchers for evacuation. We have physicians, general surgeons, orthopedic surgeons, neurosurgeon and physiotherapists on stand by.

We expect runners to be model citizens to others and so such behaviour is not expected. Will we desist from littering only if there are penalties?
