  2. TRAIL 2018 RULES AND REGULATIONS

    It is the responsibility of each participant to be aware of and follow these rules. Failure to do so may result in disqualification.


    1. Only mountain bikes in safe working order are allowed. Bikes must be fitted with working front and rear brakes and bar ends or extensions must be securely plugged. No drop bars or aero bars allowed. Tandem bikes are not allowed.

    2. No slick or road tires allowed.

    3. Participants must wear a properly secured helmet at all times during the race including when a participant is pushing or carrying their bike. Failure to wear a helmet will result in disqualification.

    4. Participants must wear proper riding attire, including a shirt, shorts or pants, and fully enclosed shoes at all times during the race. No slippers or open toe shoes allowed.

    5. All participants must sign in before the start of their wave. Failure to sign in will result in a DNS (did not start) and will mean the participant is ineligible for awards.

    6. All riders must be 16 years of age by February 18, 2018. All minors are required to present their parental consent and show proof of age during the sign in at the start area. Failure to present necessary requirements will result in disqualification.

    7. Professional and ex-professional racers can compete in this race. The Top 3 overall winners, Professional, ex-pro or amateur, will be excluded from the Age Category winners.

    8. 7-Eleven Trail 2018 official race number plates must be displayed on the front of each participant’s bike to show that they are registered, while race number must be worn by each participant attached to the rear of the cycling shirt. Only registered racers may compete. A participant should not cut, fold, apply stickers to or alter in any way the number plate and race number. Removal or failure to wear a race number or race number plate will result in disqualification.

    9. A race briefing will take place at the start area before the start of the race (time to be announced). It is the responsibility of each participant to attend the race briefing.

    10. Start times: Participants will be given a start time and wave designation. It is the responsibility of the participant to be at the start area ahead of their release time. Participants who arrive late will be moved to the last wave start.

    11. 7-Eleven Trail 2018 reserves the right to remove obstructive participants before the entrance to the BLUE ZONE and reinsert them when they will no longer obstruct faster racers. Obstructive racers are defined as those who have been overtaken by any participant from a previous wave and will, in the marshal's judgement, obstruct other riders from that wave.

    12. There will be a course cut-off time for all participants. This will be at the TOP OF NURSERY CLIMB (km 30). Cut-off hours will be different for each wave. Please refer to the wave schedule. Any participants who fail to reach the cut-off point before their cut-off time will be escorted out of the race by race officials along the most direct route.

    13. There will be extraction points throughout the course for participants who cannot continue due to mechanical or medical issues. Participants should report to the extraction points and will be transported to the finish line area at the safest time depending on the availability of transportation at each extraction point. Any participant who is extracted from the race will receive a DNF (did not finish) result.

    14. It is the responsibility of each participant to follow the designated race course at all times. Short cutting or changing the course will result in disqualification. If a participant leaves the designated race course, either by accident or on purpose, they must re-enter the course at the exact point they left to avoid disqualification.

    15. Participants are not permitted to willingly alter the course in any way without first consulting with race officials. This includes moving rocks, logs, tape or other natural obstacles.

    16. Riders must respect the environment and ride on the designated course only. Participants are not permitted at any time during the event to create their own trails or cause any damage to private property.

    17. Participants may finish the race by riding, pushing, or carrying a bike that is mechanically impaired, as long as the participant completes the entire course and has not made a short-cut.

    18. Each participant is responsible for having their bike in good operating condition. All participants must be self-sufficient during the race. Repairs during the race must be performed by individual racers. Tools and spare parts used in a repair must be carried by the racer.

    19. Each participant must complete the course on the same bike they started the race with. No exchanging of any bike parts with another participant or non-participant is allowed at any time. Exchanging bike parts will result in disqualification.

    20. Hydration stations will be strategically placed inside the race course but participants should be self-sufficient and not depend on the hydration sites for water.

    21. Participants should allow faster riders to pass them. Participants passing must wait until trail space allows and until passing is safe for other riders. Announce your presence as you pass another rider (i.e. "On your left. Please!") and wait for communication from the rider that it is safe to pass (especially in single track areas). The participant being passed has the right of way.

    22. Participants riding their bike have the right of way over one pushing a bike. A participant pushing their bike must make every effort to keep the track clear for other participants to safely pass on their bikes.

    23. Participants will make every effort not to impede the progress of another rider and respect all participants on the course at all times.

    24. Participants must ride with courtesy at all times. Unsportsmanlike conduct, use of bad or abusive language directed toward another participant, race official, or spectator, is grounds for disqualification.

    25. Participants must give way to all medical personnel or race officials on the race course regardless of their standing in the race.

    26. The race director may stop the race in case of severe injury to a participant or dangerous weather conditions.

    32. Protests must be reported, in writing, to the race director within 20 minutes of the completion of the race. A protest fee of P1,000 will be charged for all written protest.
