Trail etiquette / Trail Safety / Eco-friendly vignette scripts

1. Passing 

We don’t all run at the same pace.

When you’re on the trail, be aware of faster runners wanting to pass, and keep left where possible. PLEASE KEEP LEFT and PASS RIGHT side when approaching.

If you’re passing slower runners, give plenty of notice and slow down if you have to. Shout out ‘On your right’ or ‘Passing on the right’ to warn them of your approach.

The extra care taken is a small price to pay for keeping everyone safe and happy on the trails.

2. Music

Music is a great motivator when running whether it’s in training or during a race.

There’s nothing like some great tunes to lift your spirits and keep the pace.

Keep you volume low enough to hear approaching runners, and be aware of changing terrain. When the trail narrows or get more crowded, you may need to turn down or turn off your music just so everyone can share the trail, and run or pass safely.

Plug in, but don’t tune out!

3. Litter

Gels, bars, sweets, bananas … having a snack on the trails is great to keep your energy levels up, but don’t forget to take your trash with you!

We love the trails and we can all do our part to keeping them beautiful and litter-free. Pick up after yourself, or someone else!

Take nothing but pictures, and leave nothing behind but footprints.

4. Recyling / No Cups racing

The average runner uses 3 paper cups over a 5km race. 

Over shorter distances and 50k, that’s a lot of cups. Let’s help save the environment racing with NO CUPS. Use a reusable bottle, hydration bag or a foldable cup during a race, and take only what you need. 

It just takes a small effort from everyone to make a big difference in the world we live in.

NOTE: Please read this page closer to race week as could be updated with further changes depending on country.

 

Action Asia Events: Use of Performance Enhancing Drugs and Banned Substances Position Statement: 

Action Asia Events (AAE), is one of Asia’s oldest and leading adventure and trail running event organisers, operating in conjunction with the China Skyrunning Association (CSA) which is an associate member of the International Skyrunning Federation (ISF). When entering any AAE event each participant is agreeing to and deemed to have accepted the AAE position statement and policy regarding performance enhancing drugs and banned substances and to adhere to and follow the stated position of AAE regarding use of such drugs. Like many athletic event organisers AAE’s position and policy only endorses and supports clean sport free from the use by participants of banned substances. This policy is applicable to all participants irrespective of their performance level, age and experience who should adhere to the anti-doping rules and banned substances established by the World Anti-Doping Agency (WADA). It is recognised and understood that testing of participants for such banned substances is less widespread and frequent than in other athletic events but the same principles apply as for those other sports and the integrity of the sport, of the participants and their health is of paramount importance.

 

The following is AAE’s position

AAE event participants should be aware of the anti-doping rules and banned substances established by WADA and on other anti-doping rules and policies.

Each participant in AAE events will be required to acknowledge the AAE position on use of Performance Enhancing Drugs and Banned Substances and agree to and accept the enforcement of this position by AAE.

AAE will not permit any person to enter an AAE event where the person has been banned from competition for a violation of applicable anti-doping rules or policies while the ban is effective.

Once any ban imposed on a person for violation of anti-doping rules or policies has been served or a ban is overturned on appeal or otherwise vacated, a person may enter and compete in AAE events and be fully eligible to receive prize money,  awards, podium recognition, or overall or age group competitive rankings at any AAE event.

If AAE determines, at any time, that a participant has competed in an AAE event while banned from competition or is determined to have been in violation of anti-doping rules and policies at the time of such participation then that participant will be disqualified from the event and must return any prize money, awards received at such event.
