2.) At each staffed ("live") checkpoint the participant will receive a punches control mark to the control sheet and the arrival time will be recorded. The arrival time will be inscribed manually at all staffed checkpoints and at a part of the live checkpoints it will be recorded also with chip usage. Therefore the participant goes to the checkpoint staff desk (control) immediately after he/she came to the checkpoint (not when leaving the checkpoint or after taking refreshment break).

3.) At the "non-staffed" checkpoints the participant will make a punches control mark to the control sheet, whi will be a proof of reaching this checkpoint. In case the punches would be not in place or destroyed, the participant will write down/remember/make a photo of the password in the checkpoint sign (the password is a backup for the case of stolen or destroyed punches).

4.) There will be at least one secret checkpoint during the course, which can be either live, or as a sign with special marking punches or password (in such case it will be placed visibly on the course and significantly marked with JAVORNÍCKA STOVKA and SECRET CHECKPOINT). The same rule about penalisation as for other checkpoints is valid also for the secret checkpoint.

5.) The total time limit for completing the Javornícka stovka course is 28 hours. Further there are time limits for the staffed checkpoints (see the section Course for more information). In case the participant will arrive after the time limit for the checkpoint, he will be not allowed to continue in the race (but he will be allowed to continue out of the event).

6.) Participant, who will go through all the staffed checkpoints with keeping it's time limits and through all other checkpoints witin the race regulations scope and will arrive to the finish place within the overall time limit, will receive a certificate of Javornícka stovka completion.

One missing live checkpoint record and punches mark or one missing checkpoint punches mark (eventually missing password in case of missing/destroyed punches) is penalised with 3 hours added to the total time. In case the total time exceeds the total time limit of 28 hours for completing the course, this will results in DNF. Only exemption is the circumastance of stolen or destroyed checkpoint (the checkpoint punches and the password will be not at it's place or will be destroyed). In such case the checkpoint may be cancelled after consultation of the organizer with the next live checkpoint staff. In case of destroyed checkpoint we recommend to make a photo of the tourist signpost or of  the concrete place as an alternative proof.
