WATER AND CONTAINER
Warning: water will not be distributed for the HALF MDS FUERTEVENTURA in the same way as for the MDS MAROC. You’ll be given 5-l bottles when you arrive at the bivouac. At the CPs, you’ll be able to fill your mandatory containers (canteens, bottles and hydration bags) at the tanks provided. You’ll not receive a certain number of new 1.5-l bottles per day. Bear this in mind when you’re choosing your hydration system for the race.
MINOR INJURIES AND MEDICINE
The medical team will not be responsible for treating minor injuries. Try to assess the severity of any injury or illness you may have before consulting the medical team. If you might not be able to continue the race due to your injury or illness, don’t hesitate to request their assistance. Don’t forget to bring your personal medicine to deal with all common problems (blisters, bruises, diarrhoea, etc.).
NETWORK AND ELECTRICITY
The bivouac has no electrical power supply. It is not possible to recharge your mobile phone, camera, etc. So save your batteries! At the bivouac and many points along the route, you’ll be able to access the phone and data network. But don’t overdo it. Make the most of the HALF MDS FUERTEVENTURA as a break from your usual life. In any case, using your mobile phone at the bivouac or on the route is not allowed. If you would like to make a phone call, step away as a courtesy to your fellow competitors.
CERTIFICATE AND ELECTROCARDIOGRAM
During the technical and medical check on Monday, 25 September, you will have to present your official medical certificate, as well as a resting electrocardiogram. Don’t forget them!
