Runners attempting P1 must understand that challenges exist in this 110-kilometer trail race and they must be prepared to make decisions for their own safety under uncertain conditions without expectation of immediate assistance due to the inaccessibility of many areas to any type of motor vehicle, the remoteness of the race route and the distance between villages/households. While there is no guarantee that the runner is prepared for every eventuality, finishing a qualifying event gives some evidence of being prepared for P1. Additionally, it also improves the chances for a runner to finish the event.

For the safety and welfare of all those involved in this event, participants must meet the following requirements:
1. Every participant must be at least 18 years of age on race day. Those who will not be 18 years of age on race day must submit a signed parent’s or guardian’s consent.
2. He/she must have officially finished a 50-kilometer trail ultramarathon or trail marathon (all results must be verifiable from the internet).
3. Qualifying races must be completed in the period from April 1, 2019 – April 1, 2023.
4. All participants must abide by the Race Rules and Guidelines.
