Propositions for Marathon 2022
In addition to promoting the tourist and cultural potentials of the countries through which it passes, the marathon promotes cycling as a sport that reduces air pollution and promotes a healthy lifestyle. Each day is carefully designed in terms of complexity, mileage, track profile and other important parameters. Each participant has enough time to ride at his own pace within the projected track, without the pressure that is present in competitions. Accommodation is organized in hotels, mountain lodges or private accommodations. The participants can choose how they are going to be accommodated by applying on our website. The participants provide their own meals. They can carry it with them, prepare during the marathon (in the accommodation), buy it along the ride in shops or in facilities where they are accommodated. To book an overnight stay, it is necessary to select a facility for each individual day and pay in advance the total amount by the deadline specified in the propositions. The organizer will obtain offers for available accommodation with prices and each participant must electronically fill out a form for the facility he wants. When the reservation is confirmed, the number of available rooms is reduced by one, so that the number of remaining rooms is known at all times. If all rooms in one facility are reserved, the participant can choose one of the remaining options. The participants will need to accept the following statement upon applying for the marathon: ''On the occasion of participation in the Čiker MTB marathon 2022, which takes place from 26 June until 5 July 2022 - I herewith agree with the following statement: I am familiar with the propositions of the manifestation, traffic regulations and the manner of safe use of tangible and intangible assets. I was informed by the organizer of the event that I should not participate in marathon or some of the foreseen tracks, unless I am physically and mentally ready to participate, that I should choose a track that corresponds to my current abilities, and in that sense I declare that I am physically and mentally prepared for the selected track, i.e. marathon, and that I participate in the manifestation at my own risk. I also declare that the organizer of the marathon will not be held liable in the event of injury, loss of material goods and / or other material and non-material damages (fear, pain, etc.) that occurs as a result of participation in the manifestation, and I completely deny the right to claim damages in the aforementioned cases. By accepting this statement, I confirm and accept responsibility for the consequences caused by my behavior in terms of compliance with the provisions of the Law on Traffic Safety on Roads and other legal and by-law regulations applicable in the territories of countries the marathon goes through. I agree with the use of my name, pictures and videos, etc. for the needs of marathon organizers on radio, television, electronic media, newspapers, brochures, etc. without asking for any cash or other remuneration, and completely waive the right to claim against the claimed basis.'' For the minors, this statement needs to be signed by parents or guardians. The organization of transportation on the way back from Herceg Novi to Kraljevo is in accordance with the number of registered participants (buses), while equipment and bicycles are transported by trucks and buses. The number of participants returning to Kraljevo must be known in advance in order to reserve enough seats in the vehicles, which is done when registering for the marathon. The price participants transport, along with their equipment and bicycles (for those who register) is 20 € and is paid at the same time as the registration fee. In order for the application to be valid, it is necessary for the participants to fill in all the fields with accurate data, pay the registration fee in dinars to the bank account of the club and have their acceptance of the application confirmed by the organizers. The data are important because of the insurance that each participant in the marathon has and other reasons important for logistics. Data is not an optional but a mandatory item, and is not just a formality but also a real need. Depositing the registration fee into the bank's account is obligatory for the participants whose residence is on the territory of the Republic of Serbia, while foreign participants can pay the entire amount upon arrival in Kraljevo. The prescribed part of the amount (payment) corresponds to the dinar part of accommodation costs (overnight stay in reserved facilities). The registration fee for Čiker MTB marathon 2022 is 90e, and the payment method is thoroughly explained in the application process on the Čiker website. In case the participant plans to ride less than 50% of the marathon (expressed in number of days), the price of the registration fee can be reduced. The percentage of fee reduction depends on the particular situation, and the participants who believe that they have the basis for the reduction should send an email with all the details. The organizer will inform the participants of the outcome in a short time period. The organizer has the right to forbid the participants taking part in the marathon if they don't own a bicycle of appropriate condition and quality, or all the necessary equipment, as well as some other objective reasons. The appropriate fitness preparation for such a demanding marathon is a must, due to the obvious reasons, despite the fact that the participants ride at their own pace. Also, the type and condition of the bicycle is very important for riding on challenging terrains. The participant is obliged to prepare the bicycle before the marathon and bring it to the optimum condition, without any defects or worn parts that can be assumed to cause a problem during the marathon itself. If a bicycle has non-standard or rare parts, the participant should provide backups. For basic repairs on a daily basis, the organizer will provide the customer service. All information regarding Čiker MTB marathon will be timely published on the site, Instagram, Facebook pages and groups, including the application form, brochure, GPS navigation trails, the possibility of purchasing food in the places through which the marathon passes, as well as other relevant information for the participants.
