What is the "Turning Point" in running?

Participants crossing the line of the 25th km run, known as the "Tournant", before 5.30pm (12hrs of running) will continue their race by climbing the Semnoz, where the "Sommet" finish will be located, and will become a "Top finisher".
Competitors must leave Saint-Jorioz in the direction of the cape course no later than 10 minutes after ringing the bell.

If not, the competitors will continue with their running course on the lake loops to cross the "Lake" finish line before 00h00 (stopwatch) to be "Lake Finisher".

If a competitor who has crossed the line before 5.30 pm does not wish to continue by the Ascension, a penalty will be applied to him (penalty corresponding to the time between the time he decides to continue without going up to the Semnoz and the time of the closing of the Tournant, i.e. 5.30 pm).

On the other hand, competitors who arrive at the Tournant after 5:30 pm will not be allowed to climb the mountain and will be disqualified. The return from the " Sommet " finish line can be made by an organization vehicle. Shuttles will be available to take you from the Semnoz summit to the Saint Jorioz finish area, depending on the arrival of the participants.

Can I receive penalties during the race?

Yes, sheltering behind or beside a competitor or any other vehicle is prohibited. The overtaking must be done within 25 seconds. The stewards and the organization will be extremely vigilant and will sanction competitors who do not respect this rule with a blue card. This requires a stop (penalty box - 5 minutes) during the running event. If this is not done, the competitor will be
disqualification of the competitor. The Penalty Box will be located near the finish site "Lake" on the Esplanade.

How is the ranking done?

The competitors who have crossed the "Top" finish line will be ranked first, according to their finish time. The competitors who have crossed the "Lake" line will then be ranked in order of arrival, even if their time is less than some of the "Top" finishers. There will be only one ranking, the last one to reach the "Top" preceding the first one to reach the "Lake".
