Organizers responsibility is limited to providing the route map and monitoring the riders across the route for compliance with rider route guidelines.
Riders have to bear the cost of food, travel, support vehicles, crew members, crew cars, nutrition, medical supplies, medical emergencies etc.

A rider cannot ride alone (without the support of a crew car). Safety is paramount. We request riders complete the race safely. K2K counts the total time taken to finish by the rider. Riders can take a rest as and when required but need to keep in mind the cut-offs and the closing time.

Riders need to inform the control room if they plan to go off the course for whatever reason.

Crew members and Crew Cars are something the riders have to decide because K2K race is a team effort. A strong team is essential for a strong finish. We have seen teams doing ultra-cycling races with 1 crew car and sometimes up to 3 crew cars. In short, there is no limit. A minimum of 1 crew car is compulsory.  But all vehicles and crew members need to follow the set rules and guidelines along with the rider.

Across the route, there will be multiple time stations with cut-offs. Each rider has to meet the cut-off time. Each rider or their support team needs to write down the date and time (hh:mm)
of the rider reaching the time station and also inform the same to the control room. Details on how to information will be shared later in the coming days. Please note: The tracking device needs to be on and working at all times. Non-operation of the tracker or turning it off will disqualify the respective rider from the race.

There will be at least 10 checkpoints/time stations. Once the formalities at the checkpoints are complete, we will announce them. Checkpoints can be manned or unmanned.

Bicycle repair and maintenance is the responsibility of each team. Crew members are the angels to the rider. So, choose them wisely.

The Race Across India 1.0 : K2K route is finalized and all riders need to follow the same route. Riders will be tracked along the route. If an active rider needs to go off route (for valid reasons), then the team will need to intimate the control room. A rider going off route will have to report the same immediately and will re-join the route at the exact point where he deviated from the route before commending the ride again.

Note: Riders, support team members, and media teams all need to follow the rules and guidelines throughout the race and maintain the utmost safety for the entire route. Non-compliance with rules attracts penalties to the rider. Rules and guidelines will be announced soon.

Riding in the dark is the rider’s call. We only intervene if the teams are not following the set rules and guidelines. However, you may be required to ride in the dark to meet the cut-off times at the checkpoints.

NOTE: The safety of riders, the support team, and the general public along the route is the most important priority.

We request riders be prepared for rain, hot and humid days, and a few pleasant days. On the first day, there is a probability of snow as well in the higher altitudes.
