Paying attention to
weather conditions and the forecasts of the various meteorological sites, it
appears that next Friday 15/10/2021 will be the day with the most rainfall (25
mm of rain / three hours).
The rainfall had already
started last Friday and still is raining in a mild rate in the area of Rodopi
mountains. It is expected that there will be, among others, a large water flow
(high level) in the creeks.
Having as basic
pillar = SAFETY FIRST – (Athletes & Volunteers)
awareness about our organization capabilities in such weather conditions,
decided to put into operation the plan B. Plan B means an alternative route and
the change of the start day of the race from Friday 06.00 to Saturday 06.00
This new route will
be in the type of out and back.
