  • Aids
  • Withdrawal
  • Facilities at the Finish
  • Rules
  • Event Programs 

Aid stations will be situated along the routes approximately every 4 kilometers. At selected stations water, sport drinks, as well as fruit will be provided. It is possible to have personal supplies delivered at selected stations. These can include food, drinks, sunscreen, extra clothes, shoes or other personal necessities.

The medical team will supervise the marathon and assist in case of injury or exhaustion. The medical team has undisputed authority to exclude runners who according to their judgment, should not continue running if it involves a serious health risk to the runner. The medical team will be on a stand by at the Start/Finish point and in case of an emergency reported to the organizers from any of the stations the medical team will leave for a proper spot to assist an injured person.

Runners who wish to drop out of the race should go to the nearest aid station and wait to be picked up by either the medical team or race officials. If a runner cannot make it to the nearest aid station, he/she should simply wait at the side of the road and ask another runner to report about his situation to the aid station. We encourage all participants to look after each other and report to the organizers or medical team if you see an injured runner on the route. All decisions made by the medical team will be final!

The medal is immediately granted after the finish line is crossed. Water, sandwiches and fruit are at disposal of all runners of Half and Full Marathons.

The race is subject to local conditions, as both the forces of nature and other conditions are very different from standard conditions in other parts of the world. This means that major situations can occur causing delays and cancellations that will change some outlines. Weather conditions, road conditions, problems with the vehicles, etc can all cause a change in the outlined plan.

Refunds No refund will be granted for race participation in case of no show, illness, strikes, and alteration by runners. Exclusion of Liability Participants in an ordinary marathon are easily injured. The risk entailed in the “Kazbegi Trail Marathon” is obviously not small; The race organizers therefore recommend that you get a thorough medical check-up prior to running the marathon. The above is also the reason for the following terms and conditions, including in particular the exclusion of liability in clauses 1-3.

1. Participation at your own risk By signing the registration form you accept that your participation in the marathon is at your own responsibility and your own risk in all aspects. You accept that you can’t claim any kind of damages, indemnification or any other compensation for personal injury, damage to property or any other loss, including any kind of indirect loss in connection with your participation in the marathon from the race organization team, unless you are subjected to any kind of injury or loss due to gross negligence on the part of the race organizers or their employees. On the other hand, the race organizers can’t be made liable for negligence displayed by independently participating third parties or the local authorities prior to, during, or after the marathon.

If you are injured in any way due to your participation in the marathon and will be unable to go through with your stay in Georgia as planned, you are also prevented from claiming damages, indemnification or any other kind of compensation.

2. Medical Assistance The race organizers confirm that a medical team is available to the participants. If any treatment that is not or can’t be carried out by this team your transportation to the proper hospital will be a matter between you, the proper hospital, the emergency express company and your private travel & health insurance. You will not be able to hold the race organizers responsible for any errors or any negligence caused by local hospitals and therapists.

If the doctor or other assistants at the marathon find that it would not be defensible to let a participant continue, the person in question will be taken out of the marathon.

The race organizers do not undertake any responsibility for such a decision, which will be made out of consideration for the health of the participant.

3. Travel & Health Insurance Travel and Health Insurances are personal responsibilities of the runners. All runners should be insured before they leave for Georgia. And the insurance must be valid throughout the period the runners stay in Georgia.

4. Sponsors Even though the marathon is a small event, it requires the same organization and planning efforts as a major event. Therefore, the event is very much dependent on voluntary contributions and sponsors, whose interest the race organizers must protect. As a consequence, on the day of the race  runners should not wear or promote any brand or company that may conflict with the interests of a marathon sponsor. If you consider wearing clothes with logos or writing exceeding 3×5 cm, please contact the race organizers beforehand for a written permission. The number allocated to each runner must be worn on the front of the shirt, and must be visible at all times during the race. Runners that disrespect these necessary regulations risk being disqualified from the marathon and will not receive medal or certificate. These rules will apply without any financial compensation.

5. Film & Video

Family, friends and other spectators are very welcome to take photographs or make video recordings for private use. Professional photographers must collect a written permission from the race organizers beforehand. All rights in relation to the “Kazbegi Trail Marathon” belong to the race organizers, and permission to use the name “Kazbegi Trail Marathon” or pictures from the event for commercial purposes, must be obtained in writing from the race organizers beforehand.

6. Force Majeure Provided that the weather or alike conditions out of the race organizers’ control, inhibit the planned completion of the marathon the following will happen: 1) In case the incident occurs before departure to Georgia, the race will be canceled and the payment refunded. If possible, all participants will be offered a compensating journey.

2) In case that the incident occurs after departure to Georgia, there will be no refund of payment but a compensating journey will be offered.

7. Additional Conditions These conditions, in particular the exclusions of liability in clauses 1-3, form part of your agreement with the race organizers in regards with the race conditions. In case of any discrepancies between these conditions and the rest of the agreement, these conditions shall take precedence.

8. Choice of Law

By signing the entry form, you accept that any dispute regarding your participation in the marathon will be subject to the Georgian Law.

On September 3rd at 4:30pm – 6:30pm there will be “Pasta Party” held at the hotel “Rooms Kazbegi”.

This pasta dinner is free of charge for all the participants.

During registration you’ll get a package with Bib number, Dry Fit (if you have applied & made the payment on time), voucher for “Pasta Party” and a small “Medical responsibility” paper that we need to receive signed before you leave the registration desk. Additionally for 21k and 42k distances we’ll supply sandwich vouchers. You are welcome to request “after race” sandwich, banana & water by this voucher.

香港人推介-“有啲鄉村越野feel!”

2014年Kazbegi Trail Marathon 有八位參賽者來自香港,其中Eric參加全馬,並在限時內完成. Eric 大讚沿途風光明媚,有啲鄉村越野的感覺,沿路有友善的村民為你打氣,有羊馬牛係身邊擦過,同係香港跑真的很不同,是非常難得的經驗,坐十多小時飛機也值。

oBeat:為何選擇這個地方跑馬拉松?
Eric: 聽說了這馬拉松風景好靚,而且我亦一直想到格魯吉亞旅遊,所以參加。

oBeat:當日天氣如何?
Eric: kazbegi温差大,是一早一晚會比較冷,跑的時候温度舒適, 沒有下雨。

oBeat:路面情況如何?
Eric: 上山及下山一段 路面比較不平,建議穿跑山用的專用鞋。

oBeat:賽事配套如何?
Eric: 配套尚好,水站充足,路程指示亦清晰。

oBeat:有什麼貼士給來年參加的朋友?
Eric: 建議抱輕鬆心態參賽,別太介懷時間,以免錯過沿途風光景緻。 上到2100米高山,要留意呼吸,千萬要量力而為。另建議如沒有跑山地經驗的朋友可當行山,帶備行山杖,幫助完成上落斜坡。

卡茲別克山: 高加索山脈的主峰,海拔5033米,山頂常年被白雪覆蓋,比有[歐洲之巔]之稱的少女峰還高。 卡茲別克主要觀光點為Gergeti三一教堂(The Gergeti Trinity Church),位於山頂海拔2170米,面對茲別克山峰,視野遼闊。
