There is little left to start your participation in the 5th edition of the Barcelona Trail Races! Please read calmly and carefully these notes in order to facilitate all the previous steps before your start.
Regarding your bib number, you can pick it up from Friday 24th in the afternoon and Saturday 25th early in the morning. We recommend you to do it on Friday to avoid last minute queues. You have the schedule here. We remind you that you must carry your identity card, and that if you wish to collect the bib number of a friend you must present the authorization sheet to third parties signed, which you will find here (in Spanish), with the photocopy of the ID of the owner of the bib number.
Before entering the start corral, you must go through the equipment control corridor. Do it with time to avoid last minute queues and remember to take the bars and gels marked with your bib number (if you don’t have it written, you will have to do it there and it will take time). You can check your bib number here. We recommend to take a look at the schedules in order to have enough time before your start time. You can find the schedule here.
This year, one of the main new highlights is that every runner will carry a GPS tracking device. This is a big step forward in quality, both for the runner and for the organization, since the system allows real-time tracking of all the runners, which can be done from the mobile. You will collect the GPS tracking device and the timing chip at the same time as the bib number. You must take into account that it is a device that we rent to a company and that it has a considerable cost. Please, be careful and have in mind that, in case you withdraw, you have to return the timing chip and GPS tracking device to the person in charge of the refreshment post. Regarding the placement of the device, read the instructions that you will find in the bib number envelope or here.
As for the relay race, with the bib number you will find a bracelet for each one of you, which you must wear during the race and that will identify you as participants of the GTX2. The equipment control of the second runner will be done at the CEM El Papiol, which is the refreshment post where the relay will take place. The baton of the relay will be the timing chip and the GPS tracking device. If the first runner wish to, he can accompany his/her partner the last meters of the race and cross the finish line together.
Have a good race!
