The main recommendation to those who participate is to calibrate the refreshments well, pay attention to distances and manage well the autonomy of water and food , the Val d'Orcia is land of wind and desert and can easily deceive, remember that it is a semi-autonomous race. From one refreshment to the other there can be several km and can pass some time, so it is essential to have all the obligatory material and leave nothing to chance, read the rules of the race, have the phone turned on (it is advisable to have a power bank), make sure you have an efficient lamp with spare batteries. Remember that your race conduct depends exclusively on YOU, the route is traced but it is advisable to have the gps track or download the map.
