Every inch of the race course must be traveled by each runner-participant. In the event of a routing error, wrong turn, the runner may be driven back to the exact original spot where he/she left the course and continue running from that location. There will be no allowance made for lost time or kilometers run in the wrong direction.
If a runner-participant needs to leave the course, his/her crew must take note of the exact location where he/she left and make sure that the runner should resume the race from the said place or point. Runners may only leave the course for appropriate reasons such as rest or medical attention.
Runners are no longer allowed to leave the race course to eat in commercial establishments or fastfood stores. If runners intend to eat the food from these fastfood stores or commercial establishment, they have to instruct their crew to buy the item for them and have the food given along the race route.
If a runner withdraws, he.she or his/her crew must contact the Race Dorector or Race Marshals in the nearest Time Station immediately. The name of the runner, reason for withdrawal, time of withdrawal. and number of kilometers completed must be stated.
All runners and crew who drop are encouraged, and expected, to come to the finish line and both post-race events to greet and celebrate with their fellow runners and crews.
"In the event of a routing error, wrong turn, the runner may be driven back to the exact original spot where he/she left the course and continue running from that location."
What is meant by "driven back"? Does it mean they can ride a vehicle? Or they should do it on foot? Just asking for clarification.
the runner should go back on his own, through his/her support vehicle (if available) or on foot.
