While the most important Japanese tv channel is broadcasting on prime-time the 2 hour film shot by seven operators at the Tor 2015,we are just two weeks apart from the pre inscriptions for 2016 Tor des Géants® ,which will take place in the marvelous natural stage of the Aosta Valley from the 11 until the 18 of September.
Pre-registration can be done on the web site www.100x100trail.com, starting from 12 a.m. of the 1st of February until 6 p.m. of February 14th. In this way, there’ll be a lot of time, without need to hurry to do the procedure.
Like last year, the first starting list will be sorted among the pre registrations list by a random draw made with a website who is specialized in raffles extraction end statistic formulations. The web site (www.random.org), in a completely “fortuit“ way, will determine the 700 runners of the first starting list and the consequent waiting list.
Each pre registered can follow live the lottery draw; at the end of the draw the list will be published on the Organisation web site.
An interesting news is the “coefficient 2”: it will be valuable for those who pre-registered in 2015, but who were not drawn and were not called from the waiting list. They will be entered twice in the draw, giving them a double chance to be drawn. Runners who, in 2015, were drawn, but did not confirm their participation, lose the right to this priority position. Of course, they have the chance to register normally.
Every runners who is in for the first starting list will receive an official e-mail with the confirmation before February 28th. After that, they can easily fill in the form to complete their registration.
To better understand the new rules, we would like to invite everyone to read the rules published on www.tordesgeants.it. Rules should be signed and accepted at the moment of the official inscriptions and so will be the compulsory list of materials. Compulsory materials this year will include crampons which are fundamental in order to better deal with the path of the race. Safety of runners and volunteers comes first: it is, as always, the first priority of the Organisation.
We are waiting for you since February 1st.
It is time to start training. It is time to start dreaming.
