SUPPORT 支援
 

THE 9 DRAGONS ULTRA is fundamentally a race true to the spirit of semi-self sufficiency. However it is our position that no runner shall benefit over another because they have a seconding crew in place to expedite the runners passage over the race course. Therefore in the spirit of fairness and to ensure an equal playing field to all starting the race, the organisers will penalise or disqualify runners for any transgression of the following:

九龍超跑山賽是一個半自我補給的比賽. 但為公平起見, 大會並不容許參加者接受外來人士或自行安排支援隊伍的補給. 為締造一個公平, 公正的比賽環境, 如有參加者違反以上下規條, 大會將處罰或取消該參加者資格:
