I.   GUIDELINES SPECIFIC TO RUNNING RACES (Categories 1 to 72 and category 100)

1. Collection of bibs

Participants are requested to present an identity document when collecting race bibs/envelopes. People who have registered at a Post Office or via the Internet may present either the stamped postal receipt, or the online confirmation received when registering.  Runners who are registered in a group are asked to contact the group leader to coordinate the collection of their bib for those races.

Bibs may be collected from inside the large Escaladexpo tent located on the Promenade des Bastions, in front of the Reformation Wall, at these times:

  • Friday December 1st 2017, from 12:00 am. until 8:00 pm.
  • Saturday December 2nd 2017, as of 8:00 am.

A participant who has not collected their bib envelope at least 1 hour before the start of the event will no longer be admitted.

2. Changing rooms

The changing rooms are located at College Calvin (the rue Ferdinand-Hodler entrance), which is 5 minutes’ walk from the start line. Although there is some supervision for the changing rooms we cannot guarantee complete security and therefore decline any liability in case of theft. Users must vacate the changing rooms by 8:00 pm. at the latest.

3. Warm ups

In order to ensure the smooth operation of the different events, it is not permitted to warm up on the race course itself.  However please note that throughout the whole day instructor-led warm up sessions are presented by SuvaLiv from the podium on the Treille.

4. Starting point

The departure of all the races takes place at the beginning of the « Rue de la Croix-Rouge », side Place Neuve. As it is inside the course, its access is relatively difficult. So, it is recommended to the participants to be patient and especially to go there enough early to avoid a useless stress. Since the « Promenade des Bastions », the easiest is to take the footbridges inside the park.

The starting area is divided into four sections, by age (for youth categories) or by expected running times (for adults), and each participant is urged to put themselves into the relevant area corresponding to these criteria. The organizer calls upon the sporting attitude and fair play of all participants such that they strictly observe and apply these rules: firstly to allow smooth and safe starts of races, and secondly note that in any case the net time will be recorded for all participants thanks to the timing mats installed on the starting and finishing lines.

It is indicated that the zone of departure going of the Place Neuve till the bottom of the « Rue de la Croix-Rouge » is exclusively reserved for the participants, the public having no access there. For certain races, particular devices are fitted out :

Devices “Poussin(e)s” and “Ecolier(ère)s”

To ensure smooth and safe starts for the children’s categories (“Poussin(e)s” and “Ecolier(ère)s”), the whole area up from the Place Neuve to the pedestrian crossing at the top of the Rue de la Croix-Rouge is reserved exclusively for access by the children only. This area is thus not accessible for parents or other family members.
Entrance to this starting area for the children is at the bottom of the Rue de la Croix-Rouge, near the Place Neuve,. For schools only, access to this area is also possible via the "INDUNI" stairs, accessed from the Promenade des Bastions. The starting area is bounded by mobile barriers with several entrance gates, where volunteers from our organization will take charge of your child(ren) and escort them to the starting line.

Devices “Cadet(te)s”

Two departures are planned: one reserved to the "Cadets" A and B, an other one for the "Cadettes" A and B. The "Cadet(te)s" take place in the departure area according to their arrival in the aforementioned zone. However, for the young runners, male and feminine, of very good level (more details will soon be edited), it is possible to warm up before the departure of the race on the first 150 meters of the course. The organizer can besides authorize exceptionally an athlete for particular reasons to benefit from these particular conditions. A red dot on the bid will allow to identify these athletes.

Devices time block

It is planned that for the men 5 races with 5 blocks each, except the first race which contains only 1 block; for the women, it is planned that 3 races with 5 blocks each, except the first race which contains only 1 block. Every participants has to respect the block which was attributed to him (her) at the risk of disqualification. Plan of the device by time block is available for consultation HERE.

Escaladélite Race

There are 2 departures, 1 for the men and 1 for the women. The athletes take place in the departure area according to their arrival in the aforementioned zone. Athletes who completed the race in a specific time (more details to come), will be allowed to warm up on the first 150 meters of the race route. They will be recognisable because a red dot have been printed on their race bib. Moreover, the organizing committee will be able to allow athlete for some specific authorization to warm up on the first 150 meters of the race.

Mixed Races

2 mixed races, Mix2 on 2 tours and Mix3 on 3 tours are planned. To respect the spirit of these races, the composition of each will be made by grouping (companies, clubs, schools, diverse groupings), then by zip code.

In particular, for the race Mix3, it is planned 2 departures, the first one is reserved for the participants who think of realizing a time lower than 45 minutes.

5. Children’s Village – parents meeting their children after the race (children’s categories « Poussin(e)s » and « Ecolier(ère)s »)

Parents or carers should go to meet their children after the race at the Children's Village in the upper right corner of the Promenade des Bastions, Rue De-Candolle side. Despite all the precautions, should a child happen to go astray he or she will certainly be taken care of by the "Red Riding Hood" ladies ("Chaperon Rouge”) and brought to their tent located nearby the Children's Village.
All details concerning the organization for the children may be found in the "Guidelines for Parents" document, provided in the bib envelopes and also published on the Escalade Race website. We urge parents and/or carers to explain these guidelines to their children and to locate all the key places mentioned, before the race.

6. Valuables management

A guarded service of valuables management is proposed under the tent in the Parc of Bastions, on the 3th of December, from 10:30 am to 8:30 pm. The deposit of bags is free. A single bag by participant will be accepted. This service is proposed subject to availability.

The race organizer declines any responsibility in case of theft

7. "La Marmite"

“La Marmite” is a non-competitive race “par excellence”, where the spirit of family, friendship and humour is the priority. That said, no participant is allowed to start if not in possession of a bib. No special prize other than the race souvenir is distributed at the end of this event. The rankings are in recorded alphabetical order and will be published on this Escalade Race website. There are also a few points to look out for in this event where progress is slowed down due to the large number of participants and sometimes bulky costumes and disguises worn.

8. Costumes and Disguises

Costumes and disguises are part of the festival and are welcome in the Escalade Race. As such a costume contest is organized, the rules of which are presented on this website.
Because of the overhead electric cables for trams and trolley buses, as well as the height restriction passing under bridges (3m), the  carrying or transport of large objects is forbidden under penalty of disqualification. In addition, to ensure the safety of participants and spectators, the Organising Committee reserves the right to prohibit the participation of people with costumes that may present a risk or danger, to the participant or others. It is important to note that any participants who cause an accident due to their costume will be held solely responsible.

9. Guideline concerning passing and timing limits (Escaladélite)

Runners who are being passed by others are invited to sportingly run on the right hand side of the road in order to allow other participants to pass safely and comfortably.
Specifically concerning the Escaladélite, for reasons of sporting fair play and safety the organizer reserves the right to disqualify, as of the end of the first circuit, any runners who are slow (for men :  1st loop in under 10 minutes, 2nd in under 20 minutes.  For women:  the first loop in under 13 minutes 30, 2nd in under 27 minutes).

Les dossards sont remis sur présentation d’une pièce d’identité. Les personnes s’étant inscrites dans un magasin Aeschbach ou via Internet peuvent présenter, soit la quittance, soit la confirmation en ligne reçue lors de leur inscription. Les coureurs inscrits dans un groupe sont priés de prendre contact avec le responsable du groupe afin de coordonner le retrait des enveloppes-dossard.
Les dossards pour la Course du Duc sont à retirer sous la grande tente située dans la Promenade des Bastions les :

3. Vestiaires
Aucun vestiaire n’est disponible à Genève le vendredi soir ; en revanche, les participants auront la possibilité de se changer à la MJC et au gymnase de Reignier, à la rue des Ecoles.
 
4. Transports des coureurs
En cohérence avec notre philosophie, nous encourageons vivement tous les participants à utiliser les navettes mises gratuitement à disposition par l’organisateur (durée du trajet environ 35 minutes), ce d’autant que les places de parc sont extrêmement limitées à Reignier.
Les bus seront stationnés à la rue Charles-Galland devant le Musée d’Art et d’Histoire / angle rue Bellot.
Les départs des bus s'échelonneront entre 18h00 et 20h10.
Compte tenu du nombre important de participants attendus, les coureurs se verront imposer l’heure de départ de leur bus en fonction de leur numéro de dossard. Chaque coureur pourra consulter l’heure de départ de son bus sur le site internet www.escalade.ch, sur les listes de départ, environ une dizaine de jours avant la Course. L’heure du bus assigné pour le transport vers Reignier sera communiquée également par email, de même qu’elle sera imprimée sur le dossard.
Lors de la montée dans les navettes à Genève, des agents de sécurité procèderont à une vérification de l’identité de chaque participant et à un contrôle des sacs. Par conséquent, les coureurs sont priés de se rendre bien en avance pour prendre la navette à l’horaire assigné. Ces bus déposeront ensuite, sans arrêt, les coureurs à Reignier dans un périmètre balisé et étanche incluant des espaces chauffés.
Les personnes venant par leurs propres moyens seront quant à elles contrôlées lors de leur entrée dans le périmètre « contrôlé ».

5. Transport des sacs
Pour des questions évidentes de logistique, chaque coureur est prié d’utiliser un sac d’un volume réduit.
Des bus et des camions assureront gratuitement le transport des sacs des coureurs de Reignier à Genève. Ils seront stationnés à la rue des Ecoles, à proximité de la ligne de départ.
L'organisateur fournira avec le dossard un coupon détachable, qui devra être fixé bien en vue sur son sac.
A Reignier, les coureurs déposeront leur sac dans les différents bus et camions numérotés en fonction de leur numéro de dossard ; afin d’en faciliter la récupération à l’arrivée, les coureurs sont invités à respecter scrupuleusement les consignes.
A Genève, les coureurs pourront récupérer leur sac soit dans le même bus TPG que celui dans lequel ils l'ont déposé à Reignier, soit sous les tentes installées Rue de la Croix-Rouge et portant le numéro du bus TPG dans lequel le coureur a antérieurement déposé son sac. Les sacs déposés dans les camions BALESTRAFIC pourront être récupérés soit au rez-de-chaussée de l’Uni Dufour (24 rue du Général Dufour). Le numéro du bus/du camion assigné pour le dépôt du sac sera imprimé sur le dossard.

6. Parcours
Le départ a lieu à Reignier (France) sur la Grand Rue. Le trajet emprunte ensuite la rue de Morlange, la route d'Esery , la route de Marsinge, la route de Viaison, rejoint la D2, le chemin de la Grande-Pièce, puis la route du Salève et arrive sur la RD1206. Le parcours bifurque ensuite à droite sur la rue Jules-Ferry, juste avant le rond-point du restaurant le Wo-Wo, longe le chemin des Iles, celui des Grandes-Iles, celui de l’Arve, des Pralets et celui des Vignes-du-Château pour monter sur le chemin de l’Arvaz en franchissant la frontière franco-suisse ; le trajet se poursuit à travers la commune de Veyrier, en empruntant la rue des Boulangers, puis la Route de Veyrier et celle de Vessy, sur le parcours traditionnel du Walking jusqu'au Parc des Bastions en Ville de Genève, traversant l’Arve sur le Pont de la Fontenette à Carouge. La distance totale est de km 19,580.
Compte tenu du franchissement de la frontière franco-suisse, les coureurs restent soumis aux dispositions habituelles en matière de douane.

7. Départs
Le premier départ de la course est donné à 21h30. L'organisation des départs s'effectuera par blocs successifs de 500 à 1'000 coureurs à intervalles réguliers. Pour des raisons de sécurité, la Police  impose un temps maximum de course de 2 heures, ce qui correspond à une vitesse de 9,8 km/h. Le temps de  course ne pouvant en aucun cas être dépassé, des temps de passages intermédiaires seront déterminés et en ligne prochainement. Les coureurs qui excéderaient ces limites devront quitter la course et pourront rejoindre l’arrivée par la voiture-balai ; à défaut, ils courront sous leur propre et entière responsabilité.

8. Classement et chronométrage
Le vainqueur de la Course du Duc sera le coureur qui franchira en premier la ligne d’arrivée.
Ainsi, il en est pour tous les coureurs qui seront partis dans le premier bloc. Pour ces derniers, le classement sera établi sur la base du temps écoulé entre le coup de pistolet et le franchissement de la ligne d’arrivée. Pour les coureurs qui auront pris le départ dès le deuxième bloc, le classement sera établi sur la base des temps nets, soit ceux compris entre le passage du coureur sur le tapis de départ et celui d’arrivée.
Si par exception un coureur du deuxième bloc (et suivants) devait réaliser un temps inférieur à celui des 10 premiers coureurs du premier bloc, son classement ne pourrait être meilleur que le 11ème rang.
Il sera établi un classement scratch, à savoir toutes catégories confondues, un pour les hommes et un pour les femmes, et des classements par catégories d'âges.
Prix spéciaux
Des prix spéciaux récompenseront les 10 premiers coureurs hommes et 10 premières femmes au classement scratch uniquement.
