REGISTRATION
After arriving to the start area, your ticket will be scanned (mobile versions accepted) and you will be handed out your starting package, which contains:

  • control bracelet (Only participants with bracelets will be serviced at the stops);
  • participant pass and a map with directions and support contacts;
  • other crucial information and items.

STARTING
After registration, you are allowed to begin the hike on the designated time for your route, which can be found in the route comparison area.

HIKING
Rest and assistance stops will be set up all across the hike route, in which you are required to check-in with your participant pass. You will also be able to replenish your water supplies, have a cup of tea, grab a snack and if need be, receive first medical assistance.

TRANSPORTATION AFTER TERMINATING YOUR HIKE EARLY

Participants wishing to terminate their hike early will have to get to the nearest rest and assistance stop. From there, they will be brought back to the start area by designated vehicles. At the last rest and assistance stop, participants should present their participant pass to volunteers and will receive a diploma with the exact number of kilometres walked.

FINISHING
All of the hike routes are radial, thus you will start and finish and the same place – Birštono str. 45, Prienai. Here, the participants who have successfully completed their chosen route will be awarded with nominal diplomas and medals. However, the hike is not a race, thus your time will not be recorded and there will be no rewards for the first hikers crossing the finish line.
