General Terms and Conditions
General Terms and Conditions Pitz Alpine Glacier Trail
Hereinafter the Pitz Alpine Glacier Trail event will be abbreviated as PAGT.
- Use – application
PAGT is an event by the Pitztal Tourist Association, Unterdorf 18, 6473 Wenns. The latest changes to the terms and conditions are always kept up to date on the event’s website. The terms and conditions (in the version valid at the time of registration) are part of the agreement between organiser and participant.
- Course stages – character
The different courses are located in high alpine terrain. Course stages are in parts located over 3,000 m above sea level and in hard-to-reach terrain. Particularly the P100, P85, P60, P45-Glacier and P45-Rifflsee competitions are extremely long and high alpine trails. All trails give a sense of adventure and guarantee a mountain experience. Participants of these events are aware of the increased risk they are taking. Among other things, every participant has to be sure-footed and free from giddiness.
- Service by the organiser and participants’ personal responsibility
The organiser provides the following infrastructure for the participant:
- Marked race course
- Provisions (en course and at the finish)
- Medical service and mountain rescue en course and at the finish
- Information during the race regarding course changes due to alpine dangers (sudden changes in weather etc.)
The PAGT participants are aware that the event puts high demands on the participants. With this knowledge, starting the PAGT is their personal responsibility. Part of this responsibility is an awareness of their own state of health, level of fitness and equipment. It is essential that participants abandon the run as soon as it threatens to become a health risk. It is imperative, that the instructions of the organiser and its authorised staff are followed. The organiser and its authorised staff can at any time exclude and/or disqualify participants from the event. This particularly applies when their own safety or the safety of other participants is at risk. A refund of the entry fee is no longer possible.
As this event takes place in partly unspoilt nature, the disposal of waste in the open countryside is forbidden. A display of environmental awareness is expected in other ways as well. When encountering health problems or accidents of other participants, runners are required to administer first aid.
Registration is only possible via the designated online form. The participant’s registration is deemed binding after the online registration has taken place and receipt of payment within 14 days to the organiser’s bank account.
The organiser has fixed an organisational limit of a maximum of 1,000 participants. Registrations exceeding this limit are not accepted.
Participation can only be transferred to third parties upon consultation with the organiser and a fee of 50,- Euros applies to this change. After 24th July 2019 a change of registration is NOT possible.
If a registered participant does not compete, the participation fee cannot be claimed back nor can the starter kit be dispatched. The same applies if a participant informs the organiser before the start that he/she will not be able to start.
- Challenges and Health
It is absolutely necessary for the participation in the P100, P85, P60, P45-Glacier and P45-Rifflsee competitions that the participant has an excellent fitness level (in both a physical and psychological sense). In addition, the participant has to have a marked sense of direction. The organiser recommends an acclimatisation of several days above 1,700 m for all participants.
Weather conditions can rapidly change in the Alps. A sudden fall in temperature to below freezing with snowfall and sudden storms over 2,000 m sea level are possible at any time. For the different competitions, the following equipment is compulsory and will be checked.
