Requirements:

1. Participants must be at least 18 years old on race day: Saturday 9 September 2017;

2. Healthy. No hypertension, heart disease history or any other disease, which is inappropriate for strenuous exercise.

 General Rules

1. Participants may run walk or crawl, but may not make use of any motorized or wheeled vehicles during the race. Doing so could be grounds for disqualification.

2. Participants cannot take the disposable bottles, cups and bowls away from supply point. Please take your own hydration gear.

3. Participants must follow the marked course route the entire way and register at each timing checkpoint. Navigable GPS watch is recommended by the organizing committee. Please download the GPX file on the official website and load the track in GPS device in advance, so that uncertain course can be confirmed via GPS device. If a participant runs the wrong way and misses the check point, his/her race result will be penalized.

Penalty Rules: The slowest time (of all participants) between the two check points before and after the check point that the participant has missed, multiplies by 1.1 as the penalty time, which will be added to the participant's result. If the result (which has added the penalty time) exceeds the closing time, the participant will be defined as unfinished to the race.

4. Race number must be visible at all times on the outside of clothing and on the front of body. The race number and race wristband are to confirm participant's identity. The loss of either race number or race wristband will lead to disqualification.

5. Each supply point will have a closing time (all closing time information will be published before the race). If a participant arrives at a supply point after closing time, he/she must stop the race and take the shelter car to the finish. The participant will be disqualified and suspended to the race for insisting to continue the race. If drop out of the race on the course, please go to the nearest check point, or call the phone number on the back of the race number to inform the race command center.

6. When assembling before the race, all participants' mandatory equipment will be checked. Participants with any lack of mandatory equipment are not allowed to participate in the race and their race number and timing device will be destroyed. During the race, participants must carry all the mandatory equipment. Staff member will check mandatory equipment randomly. Any lack of mandatory equipment will lead to the participant's disqualification and destruction of race number and timing device.

7. Environmental protection check. Participants cannot bring any disposable hydration gears, including plastic bottle, pop can, disposable cup and tableware. The organizing committee will forcibly stop the participant to participate in the race who insists to bring disposable hydration gear in the race and destroy his/her race number and timing device. During the race, participants should cooperate with the organizing committee on the environmental protection check. If a participant is found taking disposable hydration gear or tableware, he/she should drop them in the supply point and have mandatory equipment checked to continue the race. Personal garbage should be taken to next supply point to drop. Littering on the race will lead to disqualification and destruction of race number and timing device. Mutual monitoring and kind reminder are highly advocated.

8. The organizing committee reserves the right to change the race route, put off the race time, terminate the race in advance or even cancel the race due to the adverse weather conditions or other force majeure. No matter in what condition, registration fee will not be returned. Please note and understand.

9. Race qualification transfer is extremely prohibited. Individuals from both sides who have transferred the race qualification should take the responsibilities of issues of medical aid and insurance claim. If anyone is found of racing with another's race number, both individuals involved will be disqualified and both will not be allowed to participate in TNF100 series and races held by Huipao race operating organization. A report will be submitted to International Trail Running Association to state the situation.

10. Participants must show valid and original identity certificate (ID card/Passport) to pick up their race pack. Only participants themselves can pick up race number, timing chip and race wristband. If a participant cannot participate in the race, other race items apart from the race number, timing chip and race wristband can be picked up by someone else with a copy of both people's identity certificate (ID card/Passport).

Safety Clauses

1. Participants should run on the sidewalk or wayside when they are running on the road or driveway. When crossing the intersection, please pay attention to the traffic light, walk/run on the zebra-stripe and obey the traffic rules and staff members' command. If there are no zebra-stripe, please notice the passing vehicles.

2. In case of any emergency needing rescue, please call the phone number on the back of race number to contact the command center, and hold position till the arrival of rescuers. The organizing committee encourages participants to help each other. Please contact the command center or the nearest rescuer as soon possible when finding someone in need.

3. At remote mountain area, before the arrival of rescuers, injured participant can simply save himself/herself with medical supplies that he/she has carried with, cover himself/herself with survival blanket, and wait for rescue.

4. Individual accident insurance for all runners and volunteers covering race days will be purchased by the organizing committee. In the meantime, the organizing committee recommends participants to purchase accident insurance with higher coverage.

5. Participants should be polite when passing by villages. Trampling farmland and orchard, bothering farmer's livestock and poultry are prohibited, and participants should turn off headlamp before entering supply point at night.

6. During the race, tinder and smoking are strictly prohibited. Once found the participant will be disqualified, and his/her race number and timing device will be destroyed. Also, the participant will not be allowed to participate in TNF100 series and races held by Huipao race operating organization. Serious consequences (like fire incident) will result in legal punishment.

7. 100km participant should take a GPS tracking device (汇跑®小南针) from the organizing committee during the whole course of the race. The deposit of this device which will be charged at registration is 300 RMB. Participant must return the GPS tracking device at the finish, then having deposit refunded to the payment account. If the participant cannot return the GPS device on the same day, he/she can contact the organizing committee to return the device and have deposit back after the race.

8. Considering that the temperature of race day will be low and the summit of Changbaishan Mountain will be quite cold, a suit-changing point will be set at CP8 (transfer center) for 100km and 50km Groups. Participant can change dry suit and footgear at CP8. Meanwhile, windproof jacket will be checked at CP8. Participants can either carry the windproof jacket by themselves, or leave a drop bag in advance and collect it at CP8 to pass the windproof jacket check. All participants must carry or wear windproof/warm jacket (including skin jacket, light down jacket, down vest, cotton-padded clothes, etc.), if not the participant will be forced to quit, and his/her race number and timing device will be destroyed. 25km participants do not have a suit-changing point, so they must carry or wear windproof/warm jacket during the whole course from start to finish.
