The organizer does not open the bags and takes no responsibility for the content of the bags. The packing of trekking poles is prohibited (trekking poles are used from the beginning to the end of the race ). The bags are after the competitors’ crossing of the control point, transported back to the starting place in Črna na Koroškem.

 

RESCUE AND MEDICAL ASSISTANCE

Emergency medical help is arranged throughout the track and is radio-linked. Any competitor who assesses that a teammate is seriously injured, must notify the organizer by dialing the phone number that is on the race number or informing the nearest medical assistance. Whenever on the line, medical personnel who judge that the competitor is no longer able to continue the race safely, can eliminate and provide for the competitor. In case of disregard of this, the competitor may be disqualified. Every competitor must remain on the marked track, also when sleeping. Any competitor who voluntarily leaves the marked track, is no longer the responsibility of the organizer.

K24 | 2000 - 2019

In 2000, for the purpose of promoting Carinthia’s mountaineering and tourism, the largest Carinthian mountain challenge K24 was designed. Originally, it is 85 km long path with climbs on the five highest peaks around Črna na Koroškem: Peca, Olševa, Raduha, Smrekovec and Uršlja gora – together with about 5000 altitude metres. All those who beat the path in less than 24 hours, become members of Club 24 ( K24 ).
K24 is also interesting because the time of the journey is measured by everyone alone, so  there is no control on the way – everything is entrusted to the honesty and mountain ethics of the individual.

After 18 successful K24 seasons, the K24 TRAIL COMPETITION will be premiered in 2019. The route is extended to 100 km (5400 meters) and will become a unique ultra-trail in the world running through the abandoned tunnels of the Mežica mine (cca 6.5km) and continue along all five peaks of Carinthia.
