The Race Organizing Committee has developed an internal safety scale, according to which in case of severe weather phenomena, the Organizing Committee will act in accordance with the plan and require all participants to strictly comply with its requirements, namely:

1st level of danger – wind with a force of 7-9 meters per second – dismantling of inflatable arches, light structures (including mileage indicators), light awnings, promotional and photo zones.

2nd level of danger – wind with a force of 9.5-10 meters per second – dismantling of all awnings, photo zones, as well as dismantling of the crossbar of the start-finish arch.

3rd level of danger – wind with a force of 11 meters per second and more – a collegial decision to hold or cancel the Race will be made.

The committee in charge of making this decision consists of: Ivan Tretiakov, Project Manager, a representative of the SES in the region, and Chief Referee of the race. In case of an air raid warning in Kyiv, the Race is stopped. The Race will be resumed once the air raid warning is lifted (but in any case, only during the daylight hours).
