Thursday 13th September. The temporary stop refers to the whole course, from the Alpenzu hut to the Frassati hut and the last climb to the Malatra Pass. The decision was made by the organizers so as to allow them to restore and reinforce the track that climbs to the Malatra Pass, where extreme weather conditions (strong winds and sleet) have made it impossible for competitors to progress because of the poor visibility.
Consequently, the organizers decided to stop all athletes, located at various control points, at the same time. In this way, the stop watch will start again at the same moment for everyone. There are 400 trailers still competing in the race.
There are no other problems related to the practicability of the route so as soon as the organizers communicate the restart of the race, the new time barriers will also be announced.
