Hengill Ultra – Terms And Conditions

Terms and conditions that participants need to read and sign before receiving race-package

By signing reading and signing the document I confirm the following:

I am in a sufficient physical and mental condition to participate and finish Hengill Ultra 50km within 12 hours, Hengill Ultra 106km within 22 hours and Hengill Ultra 100 miles within 35 hours.

Participants in Hengill Ultra 106km need to finish the first loop within 10 hours, second loop with 12 hours. Time limit is 22 hours.

Participants in Hengill Ultra 100 miles have to finish the first loop within 11 hours, second within 12 hours (23 total) and the third loop within 12 hours. Time limit is 35 hours.

I fully realise the difficulty level of the trails that run through the highlands of Iceland where the weather can be unpredictable and bad.

I have acknowledged the time limits of the races before that start of the race. I acknowledge that everyone that do not finish the loops within the time limit will be pulled out of the race, no exceptions.

I understand that it is not the job of the staff and management of Hengill Ultra to help participants who are not properly prepared in respect to training, nutrition or running gear. The safety of each runner is their own responsibility and they have to have the skills to deal with unexpected circumstances during the race.

I have read and understood the rules of Hengill Ultra and I agree to them.

I agree to go by the instructions that the Hengill Ultra staff give and will take on board any advice that they give in relation to my safety and other participants.

As a participant in Hengill Ultra, I hereby waive any rights to compensations of any kind from the owners of the Hengill Ultra competition, the staff and any sponsor or partner with the competition because of any kind of injury, sickness, accidents or any other unforeseen incidents that I may experience during and around my participation in Hengill Ultra competition.

Participants are encouraged to seek out help from the staff if an accident or an illness occurs.
