Along the race runners will find refreshment points, water points and first aid points.

The dislocation of the differents points has been studied in order to insure appropriate assistance to runners, but the idea of semi- self-sufficiency trail running persists: every runner has to carry a food reserve, water and emergency equipment during the whole race in order not to incurr in disqualification.
