also this year trail and charity

Contributing in some way to charity is one of the objectives that the Trail del Marganai has always tried to pursue.

In previous editions we gave our contribution by supporting voluntary associations that guarantee us safety during the event, buying and donating portable DVD players with cartoons for their little guests to the pediatric CTO of Iglesias, contributing to the preparation of the inclusive play area in Domusnovas.

In line with what has been done in the past, we have decided that this year two euros for each registered will be allocated to a social project that we will shortly define.

Now it is up to all of you, with your inscriptions, to determine what the amount to be allocated to the next project will be!

(Italiano) Informazioni Importanti

Dear Athletes,

the third edition of our Trail del Marganai is close!

IMPORTANT: REMEMBER TO TAKE AND SHOW THE MANDATORY EQUIPMENT WHEN YOU GET THE RACE PACK, OTHERWISE BIBS CAN NOT BE DELIVERED!

The whole event takes place at the “Cartiera del Consorzio Natura Viva” in Domusnovas, including the bib and race pack delivery stand, starting and arrival line and the pasta party after the race.

How to arrive: once you arrive in Domusnovas, follow the indications for “Grotte di S.Giovanni”, which are situated at about 2 km from the village’s center (Google Maps -> https://www.traildelmarganai.org/en/come-arrivare/)
Immediately after the Cartiera on the way to the San Giovanni Cave, you will find a parking area.

For those who are staying in Domusnovas already on Saturday, maybe you find useful consulting our website https://www.traildelmarganai.org/en/dove-dormire-e-dove-mangiare/.

We would like to remind and underline some main points:

For all athletes participating in one of the three races

You already should know the trail’s regulations. Anyway you find it on our website https://www.traildelmarganai.org/en/regolamento/ and you can download it here:https://www.traildelmarganai.org/wp-content/uploads/2015/12/Regulations-Trail-del-Marganai-2018.pdf
We highly recommend to use a headlamp (or a small torch) when you run through the caves, because there is no illumination inside!
Please check the mandatory equipment carefully.
In order to participate, a prerequisite condition is proving possession of a medical certificate for participating in athletics competitive events. Deadline is on Thursday 08 March.
Without medical certificate we will deliver the race pack, but not the bib! This means you are not considered as a participating runner and your eventual presence on the race route would be under your own full responsibility.
The timing chip will be read before start and after arrival. Only for the 52km race there is an intermedium record at the stand situated nearby the Temple of Antas.
Each food and drink stand, is also a checkpoint for the athletes passage. Please, be helpful with the person in charge of reading your bib number. The missing record of your passage may lead to disqualification.
With the race pack delivery we are going to ask confirmation of your mobile number (the one we can find you at during the race). You will find a number for emergencies on the bib, but we also recommend to store it on your phone: 3339447383. We suggest to disconnect data services, in order to keep your phone battery charged.
The more athletes collect the race pack and bib on Saturday afternoon, the less the pre-race procedures are going last on Sunday morning.

Trail and solidarity

We believe in the importance of leaving a positive legacy in the world we live in, that goes beyond
the day of the competition.
Just like in the past editions, as well this year Trail del Marganai joins a charitable initiative. Together
with a group of local people we plan to buy some inclusive equipment for an outdoor playground in
Domusnovas.
This kind of play equipment allows children with disabilities and special needs to be active side-by-
side with able bodied children.
We will provide more details and information further on.
In order to achieve the target we are going to earmark 2 euro from each registration fee and 1 euro
from each pasta party fee (which is due only for accompanying persons).
This could be one more reason to join us and party with the Trail.
Only those who dare may fly!
