The insurance is independent from the Race organisation.
Please follow the process described here: https://www.mso.swiss/contact
Registration is exclusively online, as for all races, subject to availability.
A common mistake is that parents forget to create a personal MSO account for their child.
You have to send your request by email to firstname.lastname@example.org specifying the race you are registered for, the one you would like to enter and your estimated time of completion for this new race.
As stated in the Rules and Regulations, going for a shorter distance does not trigger any financial compensation.
On the ohter hand, going for a longer distance implies the payment of the difference between the fee paid and the current fee for the new race.
In order to be able to take the part to the « EXTREME » race, you must have some mountain experience.
