PATH SURFACE AND SAFETY

STEFANIK TRAIL surface is a combination of hiking trails, paved forest roads and asphalt on tourist marked trail. Parts of the trail lead time to time through public communication (part of the region in the Brezová pod Bradlom, in Bratislava and at the edge of municipalities with located aid stations).

ALL PARTICIPANTS are obliged to follow traffic rules where necessary!!!

 

PATH MARKING AND ORIENTATION

Sections of the path will be marked by combining official tourist trail marking and other marks added by the race organizers.

  1. Tourist signs (mostly red mark of official tourist STEFANIK TRAIL, some sections of blue, yellow and green color marking)
  2. Red-white plastic streamers hung in a prominent place (on the stages 6 and 7 with yellow-black plastic streamers)
  3. Reflex tape with high visibility at night
  4. Chalk or flour plotted arrows on pavement
  5. Guidance flag, space defining a cone and tape in the area of aid stations
  6. So called "check points" will be distributed over the entire path in order to prevent "under running" mountain peaks and shortening the prescribed path. The „check point" will always be a tent laying right on the marked course occupied by the team of volunteers checking your electronic chip to monitor the fact you have run through the check point. Always STOP and use your chip. If you miss this control, you will be penalized at the finish line.
