ITU Competition Rules
Challenge-Baja 113K and Sprint events will follow the ITU competition rules for non-drafting events.

Not starting in your designated wave, not following the course, not using the timing chip or race bib, littering, receiving external assistance and in general not following FMTRI Technical Officials indications will result in a final DQ status. All athletes are expected to compete on a friendly environment respecting each other.
All Challenge-Baja 113K and Sprint athletes are required to have the 2019 annual FMTRI membership or pay the $5 USD one-day membership; both options give basic insurance coverage during the race.
