CHRISTIAN

« It is a mythical event that is to be held in our beautiful region. An extraordinary sporting challenge in an exceptional setting. The Ultra Trail has established itself over the last few years as the ultimate challenge for all the lovers of sport and nature, and now it's time to take it to the next level by offering a high quality world circuit for the best specialists on the planet.

ESTROSI Maire de Nice Président de la Métropole Nice Côte d’Azur

One week after the Slovenian event in Kranjska Gora, one month before Transvulcania by UTMB in the Canary Islands, alongside sites as emblematic as the Tarawera Falls in New Zealand, the Blue Mountains of New South Wales in Australia, the Val d'Aran in Spain, the Squaw Valley in California or the Massif du Mont-Blanc, our city has thus established itself as an essential territory for this type of event, which has definitively made its mark on the calendar of major international sports events. 4

I would like to thank the entire UTMB World Series team for having chosen our region to organize this stage of the race, which we hope will be exemplary and which I am sure will leave a lasting impression through its originality, diversity and beauty.

TRAIL VERBIER ST BERNARD BY UTMB ®

Knowing that Nice Côte d'Azur is now at the heart of this ambition, among the 25 world events of the UTMB World Series 2022 is a great source of pride. Above all, it confirms that our region offers unique conditions for running, between the sea and the mountains, in a preserved natural environment. From Menton or Auron, Villefranche-sur-Mer or Roubion, and until the finish line in Nice, our aim is to demonstrate through our four races of 20, 50, 100 and 165 km, that this incredible sporting challenge is for everyone, whatever their level or age, and that it can also be combined with respect for the environment by highlighting exceptional lands that need to be protected by making them better known.

THE ULTIMATE GLOBAL TRAIL RUNNING CIRCUIT UTMB® World Series gives all trail runners the chance to experience the UTMB® adventure across the world. UTMB® WORLD SERIES FINALS

The UTMB® World Series Finals will be held in the three key distances of the UTMB® Mont-Blanc - known as the OCC (50k), CCC® (100k) and UTMB® (100M). The UTMB® World Series men’s and women’s titles will be awarded at these three races. To qualify for a place at the Finals, trail runners must compete in at least one of the UTMB® World Series Events or UTMB® World Series Majors, where they can collect Running Stones for use in the lottery, or be rewarded for their performance with direct access. UTMB® WORLD SERIES MAJORS

RUNNING STONES ?

You can only collect Running Stones by finishing races in the 20K, 50K, 100K or 100M category at a UTMB® World Series Event or UTMB® World Series Major.

Only 1 Running Stone acquired in the past two years is mandatory to enter the lottery. Running Stones are cumu- lative, have no expiration date, and each Running Stone gives you an additional chance to be drawn..

UTMB® INDEX ?

The UTMB® Index is calculated for each of the 4 UTMB® World Series race categories: 20K, 50K,100k and 100M :

Trail runners are also given a General UTMB® Index calculated by combining results from all race categories. A valid UTMB® Index is mandatory to enter the UTMB® Mont-Blanc lottery.

SUSTAINABILITY As the event organiser, the Nice Côte dʼAzur by UTMB has developed several actions aimed at preserving the natural environment and raising the awareness of all those involved. It is a collective action that includes the organisation, the local authorities, the runners and supporters, such as the partners, the service providers and the volunteers.

During the Nice Côte d'Azur by UTMB, you will be crossing the heart of the Mercantour National Park. In this area, as everywhere else, we ask you to pay special attention to the environment around you. The park enforces specific regulations to protect its fauna and flora, and you will find below a reminder of some to be respected:

Do not take your dog with you for the protection of the wildlife

Stay on the paths and avoid noise in order to limit trampling and disturbance of the fauna and other users

Do not pick flowers or plants to allow everyone to admire them

Do not use drones or any other noisy flying objects that could disturb the wildlife

Take away your waste to keep the area clean

Do not camp or light fires to avoid leaving traces of your visit.

Find all the details and rules of conduct in this exceptional Natural Park by clicking HERE : 10


WASTE MANAGEMENT DURING THE RACE More plastic for less waste. Runners, supporters, volunteers, organisation, everyone is called to act in the most responsible way possible.

Moreover, small trash bags will be given to the participants when they pick their race numbers. These bags will be used to put used toilet paper as well as any dirty waste such as open gels or cling film that may have contained food. We ask each runner to keep their waste with them between refreshment stations, including fruit peels. Dedicated bins are available at each feeding point to ensure waste sorting. The last bin is located approximately 100m after the feed station (clearly marked with a sign).

Runners are encouraged to use rechargeable batteries and, if this is not possible, to keep their used batteries before disposing of them in the special containers available at the feed stations or at the finish.

NICE CÔTE D’AZUR BY UTMB ®

In order to reduce the consumption of plastic by runners and volunteers, and thus limit the event's carbon impact, the organisation does not distribute any single-use tableware (cutlery, cups, bowls) at the race bases and refreshment stations. Each participant in the race is therefore invited to bring their own cutlery if they wish to eat at the refreshment posts.

11


COMMITMENT TO SOLIDARITY Nice Côte d'Azur by UTMB is committed to the Fondation de Nice and No Finish Line Nice for the funding of a project dedicated to primary schools children with behavioural issues.

THE GOOD BEHAVIOR GAME – GBG

The Good Behavior Game (GBG) is a life skills programme for primary school children. Scientific studies published in international literature attest to its effectiveness in improving the school environment and also in preventing psychosocial issues in the long term. It offers teachers a classroom management strategy based on the ritualised teaching of social behaviour, cooperation and positive education.

12

Originally from the United States, it was adapted for France by the GRVS during a pilot test conducted in partnership with several schools located in the Alpes-Maritimes region. Today, the GRVS is implemented in several schools in collaboration with local experts in the field of risk behaviour prevention, who are specially trained to support teachers in the use of the programme.

FINDING YOUR WAY AROUND IN NICE

At the heart of the event, with its Ultra Trail Village and the finish line of all distances on the Promenade des Anglais, Nice will welcome you with open arms to make you live the Mediterranean experience in all its splendour.

14



FINDING YOUR WAY AROUND IN AURON & ROUBION Auron, an ex-alpine village in the Haut Pays Niçois, was once the granary of Saint-Étienne-de-Tinée. Today, it is a dynamic winter and summer resort in the heart of the Mercantour massif. Roubion dominates the Tinée valley and flirts with the Mercantour mountain pastures, at the foot of the Mont Mounier.

These two mountain villages, hosting the starts of the 100M and 100K, provide a gateway to the hinterland of Nice and the Mercantour massif offering breathtaking experiences between rocky landscapes and green mountain pastures.

SECURITY ENVIRONMENT & WEATHER

FATIGUE & VIGILANCE

Nice Côte d'Azur by UTMB® races all take place in mountainous terrain, with some remote areas (no telecommunications...) and weather conditions which roads or can change very quickly (snow, hail, fog, heat (>30°) or intense cold (<-10°), violent wind).

Rest areas are available at aid stations for a few moments of sleep. It is dangerous to stop to sleep alone in open country. Fatigue and the lack of vigilance can cause an accident. Run within your limits (above all over the first part) saving your energy for later to surmount difficult situations which may arise, such as a sudden change of weather conditions.

Advice along the route : Do not stop at high peaks. If you can’t see any way-marker: turn around and go back to the previous marker. Follow the marked paths.

EQUIPMENT Some common sense reminders for facing difficult weather conditions: - Anticipate the cold as well as extreme heat - Don’t wait to shiver before covering yourself up - Don’t change in full wind: anticipate or wait to be sheltered - Protect yourself against the sun Walking poles: watch what you do with your poles particularly at the beginning of the race when there is a high human density. Do not wear the wrist straps on the descents: in case of a rough fall wrist-straps prevent the suitable use of the hands (injuries to shoulders, wrists, forearms or more seriously the head).

EATING & DRINKING Hydration and the consumption of energizing snacks must be adapted to the meteorological conditions andenriched in salt throughout the effort. Keep a good balance between slow and rapid release sugars. EMERGENCY ALERT When telephone network is on PC Course

09 72 16 67 25 Or emergency number

OR Other runners

Indicate your position with LiveRun by LiveTrail ®

PC COURSE N° 09 72 16 67 25 EMERGENCY N° 112 22

Before departure, please save emergency numbers in your cellphone.

MANDATORY INDIVIDUAL INSURANCE We would like to remind you that it is mandatory to be in possession of individual accident insurance which covers any eventual costs for search and rescue In France (Repatriation by helicopter costs between 800 and 3000 euros). Such an insurance policy may be taken out with the organization of your choice. In 2022, UTMB® creates its own insurance! For 49€ / year, you are covered for rescue, evacuation and medical care (including helicopter rescue) all over the world. Subscribe here: HTTPS://UTMB.ASSURINCO.COM/

LIVERUN It gives you precious information about the race (follow your race and that of your friends in real time). In the case of SOS, this function sends your position, via text message, to the organization. This represents a precious time gain in providing help, if needed. Attention however, you will still have to call the race HQ (PC Course). A mobile/cell phone is mandatory with the international optional activated throughout the duration of the race, with the battery working well. In no circumstances put your phone in airplane mode because we need to be able to contact you before, during and after the event. Smartphones are higly recommended in order to use the LiveRun

by LiveTrail® app which is essential for your safety. For runners who are going to be running for more than 15 hours, an additional external battery is highly recommended. Check that the number you have given us as an emergency contact number is that of the person who you wish to be contacted in case of a problem. Very important: In order to improve any medical intervention in case of an incident, verify that you have submitted, on your runner’s page, the telephone number that will be using during the race. You can update it until the start of your race.

IT IS MANDATORY THAT YOU DON’T LEAVE A PERSON IN DIFFICULTY ALONE.
