Punching system: Elektronic SI (Sport-Ident) system.
!!! Every competitor has to have fasten his/her SI-card to a wrist by a wristband !!!
Breaking the wristband or loss of the SI card by any team member leads to disqualification of the whole team. In order to gain points for a checkpoint, all members of a team shall punch their SI cards at the SI station of that checkpoint within a time interval of 60 seconds. For 12- and 24-hour rogaine is recommended to use high capacity SI cards of the type 6 (you can borrow them from organizers at registration). Using the old chip SI cards (type 5) allows to include score from the first 33 check point only.
Before start all competitors have to insert their SI-cards into a "Clear" unit to erase old data in the chip. Then they have to check the SI-card by inserting it into a "Check" unit (organizers are ready to help beginners). In the finish all team members have to punch "Finish" unit. Whenever visiting the hash house area during the competition, all team members shall punch the SI station labeled "Check-in". Immediately before leaving the hash house area, all team members shall punch the SI station labeled "Check-out".
SI-card renting: Please take your SI-cards at registration to check whether they are appropriate for the race. In case it isn't we can borrow you a suitable one. A return fee of 1500,- CZK or 50,- € per a SI-card will be asked. The fee will be returned after handing a chip in.
!!! IMPORTANT: Please prepare the money (1500,- CZK or 50,- €) for the SI renting in order not to detain registration process !!!

Classification: Each check point will be marked in the map and in control description as well with its point value varying from 30 to 90 points. The first figure multiplied by ten gives the point value of a check point. The number and order of control points is up to discretion of each team (go-as-you-please). Passing of each control point has to be marked by inserting SI-card into the SI unit. The final ranking of each team depend on the sum of the points gained. In case of the equal point result the better time wins.
Exceeding of given time limit: each started minute equals to 20 point penalization. If the time limit is exceeded by more than 30 minutes, team will not be classified.
