Covid-19 PROTOCOL

The Covid-19 protocol for the SkyClimb Mezzalama by Dynafit is based on the special regulations published by Federazione Italiana Skyrunning (F.I.Sky) and is part of the 2021 Regulations.  These regulations add to and do not replace national, regional or local regulations in effect governing interpersonal distancing, public hygiene and use of personal protective equipment, as well as access to the competition location and use of hotel and restaurant services.

Athletes who violate the Protocol will be disqualified immediately.

 

GENERAL ASPECTS

The Organisers will appoint a Covid Manager concerned exclusively with management of controls and the prevention plan.

All personnel involved in the practical organisation of the event must fill in and provide a SARS CoV2 (Covid-19) Case History Form and will be issued an identifying badge.

DELIVERY OF COMPETITION KIT

In the area where the competition kit/bibs/timer chips are handed out, entrance and exit routes will be kept separate.
If athletes have to line up to enter the competition kit area, they must stand at least one metre apart.

External body temperature will be measured via the forehead at the entrance to the area. Hand sanitisation points will be set up.

In order to pick up the competition kit, bib and timer chip, each competitor must come to the area in person, wearing a face mask.

Competitors must sanitise their hands before handing in a completed, signed SARS-CoV2 (COVID-19) Case History Form, which will be provided to the athletes via email and/or may be downloaded from the competition web site.
In the absence of a completed and signed SARS-CoV2 (COVID-19) Case History Form, the bib, competition kit and chip will not be provided.

No-one may pick up a bib, competition kit and chip for another competitor, or hand in the SARS-CoV2 (COVID-19) Case History Form for them.

 

PRE-COMPETITION BRIEFING

Athletes admitted to the competition will receive an email containing complete information on the route, equipped and supervised areas, refreshment points, exit routes and rescue procedures.
A technical briefing will be held in person at the start line, half an hour before the start.

Complete information on the competition will also be available on the internet site www.trofeomezzalama.it

 

COMPETITION AREA

The “competition area” includes the competition route, the start area, the finish area and the control and refreshment areas along the competition route.

The only persons admitted to the “competition area” will be the competitors, accredited technicians, judges and other competition officials, rescue and technical assistance personnel at the control and refreshment points, guides, photographers and accredited reporters. Everyone present in the “competition area” must wear a face mask at all times and comply with distancing rules.

The public may not access the “competition area”.

The presence of any spectators outside the “competition area” shall be regulated by national, regional and local regulations in effect and not by this protocol.

 

START AREA

The start area shall be identified and accessible only to competitors.
Competitors will access the start area at a single point, where a record of attendance shall be kept and external body temperature shall be measured via the forehead.
Everyone admitted to the start area must obligatorily wear a protective face mask.

Athletes in the start area must stay at least one metre apart. Distancing at the start of the race will be marked with lanes, ribbons and horizontal markings.

Competitors who leave any material in the start area will be disqualified.

 

 

ACCESSING THE START AREA

Competitors who do not wear a bib or who have not personally delivered their SARS-CoV2 (COVID-19) infection Case History Form to the Organisers may not enter the start area.
To access the start area, each competitor must obligatorily be wearing a competition bib and face mask.

External body temperature will be measured via the forehead at the entrance to the start area, and must not exceed 37.5°C.
If this temperature is exceeded, a second reading will be taken 5 (five) minutes later, and the competitor will not be admitted to the competition field but will be directed to the competent medical authorities.

Competitors must obligatorily wear a face mask until the start of the race, and will only be able to lower it one minute before the start.

Competitors must keep the face mask for the entire duration of the race, and may not discard it or give it to someone else to keep.  The face mask must be worn again at the finish line, once the amount of time normally necessary to recover has gone by, and in all cases before leaving the finish area.
Discarding the face mask will result in immediate disqualification of the competitor, who may be subject to more serious penalties under current legislation.

Competitors who leave the start area after entering it must obligatorily have their temperature measured again when they return.

The start of the competition may be staggered to ensure distancing between competitors.

 

BAG STORAGE, DRESSING ROOMS, SHOWERS

Bags, equipment and personal effects may not be left with the Organisers to be picked up after the competition is over, and the competition staff may not receive, touch or move competitors’ materials or equipment.

No dressing room and/or shower service will be provided.

 

CONDUCT DURING THE RACE

Competitors must stay at least approximately two metres apart during the race.
When passing another competitor, they must do so as quickly as possible.

Competitors must not proceed side by side during the race.

Discarding any kind of material (face masks, wastes, clothing, etc…) is strictly prohibited and shall result in immediate disqualification.

 

REFRESHMENTS

Two refreshment points will be set up along the route and marked off, and will be accessible only to athletes wearing a competition bib.
The refreshment points will be organised so that the competitors can serve themselves, with single disposable containers for drinks and single-portion packages of food.

Competitors must place disposable containers and discarded material in the containers provided.
Competitors who discard disposable containers and waste material outside the containers provided will be disqualified.

A judge competition will be present at each refreshment point, with the power to stop and immediately disqualify athletes.

 

FINISH AREA

The finish area will be surrounded by barriers to prevent public access.
Only competitors, judges and other competition officials, rescue and technical assistance workers, and accredited reporters and photographers will be allowed to access the finish area.

Everyone admitted to the finish area must obligatorily wear a protective face mask.

After passing the finish line, competitors must put on a face mask and leave the finish area as quickly as possible.

Competitors who pass the finish line will be given a bag containing everything necessary for initial refreshment and a packed lunch to be consumed outside the finish area.

 

RANKING AND AWARDS CEREMONY

To prevent crowds from gathering, the competition ranking will not be displayed and cannot be distributed in printed form, but will be published on the event’s web site.


The awards will be presented in an area adjacent to the finish area set up and marked off for the purpose, applying interpersonal distancing regulations.

All competitors and staff must wear a face mask during the awards ceremony.
