The 6D KIDS is organised by the Tourist Office backed by the municipality of la Plagne Tarentaise and the Société d’Aménagement de la Plagne.

No refund will be made for this animation.
Compulsory equipment: your 4 safety pins or other hooks for the bib.
N.B. It can be very cold at high altitude!
Recommended : water and food reserve
All children will have a bib at the start of the animation. The bibs will be distributed at the start of the animation at Plagne Center from 10.30 am to 1.15 pm Thursday july 27, 2023
The bib must be worn on the chest and must be visible permanently and in full during the whole animation. It must therefore always be positioned above all clothing.
Safety and medical assistance
There will be 1 first aid posts set up at various points along the animation. These posts will be in radio or telephone contact with race HQ. A regulation medical team will be at race HQ in Aime or Plagne Centre throughout the whole event.
The first aid posts are there to assist anybody in danger, using the organisers’ own means or those of the public health service.
It is up to a runner who is in difficulty or seriously injured to call the rescue service:
- by going to a first aid post
- by calling race HQ. The phone number will be registered on the bib’s number
- by asking another runner to alert the rescue service
It is up to each runner to assist anyone in danger and to alert the rescue service.
Remember that all sorts of unexpected weather or race related occurrences may result in you waiting for rescue longer than expected. Your safety will therefore depend on the quality of what you have with you.
A runner calling a doctor or a member of the rescue service subjects himself de facto to their authority and undertakes to accept his decisions.
Members of the rescue service following medical advice and the official doctors in particular can:
- retire any runner incapable of continuing in the event (by cancelling the number)
- evacuate by any means at their disposal competitors they consider to be in danger.
Check points and food stations
All competitors must pass through the checkpoint if there are several loops. There will be a refreshment point at the finish.
Only runners with a visible and properly checked bib have access to the refreshment station.
Abandonment and Repatriation
Except in the case of injury, competitors can only withdraw at a checkpoint. They must notify as soon as possible the person in charge of the checkpoint who will cancel their bib.
The person in charge of the checkpoint will decide how they will get the participant back to the start, according to the following general rules:
- Runners who abandon at another aid or supply post but whose state of health does not require evacuation must return to the nearest repatriation point as quickly as possible and by their own means.
With regard to aid stations accessible by car or 4×4: when the station closes, the organisation may, within the means available, repatriate runners who have abandoned and are still present at the station.
- In the event of unfavourable weather conditions justifying the partial or total stoppage of the race, the organisation will ensure the repatriation of the riders stopped as soon as possible
Runners who withdraw and meet the sweeper will have their bib cancelled by him. The runner is then no longer under the control of the organisers .
Race marshals present on the course, and the heads of the various checkpoints and feed stations are empowered to enforce the rules and to immediately apply a disqualification in the event of non-compliance, according to the following rules:
An automatic disqualification applies in the following cases:
- If you are out of time at a time barrier you will also have to hand in your number to the head of post or the race director
- Failure or refusal to enter the start locker to activate the electronic chip
- Cutting a corner to make a significant shortcut
- Throwing of rubbish (voluntary act) by a competitor or a member of his entourage. Waste bins will be placed at the feed zones. Participants must keep their rubbish and packaging until the places indicated by the organisation have been found to dispose of it. Throwing any object, paper or rubbish on the road is strictly forbidden, an immediate disqualification will take place.
- Lack of respect for individuals (officials or competitors)
- Not assisting someone in difficulty
- Cheating (example: using means of transport, sharing a bib …)
- Failure to carry an electronic chip
- Failure to pass through a checkpoint
- Refusal to comply with an instruction from race management, a race commissioner, the person in charge of a checkpoint or feeding station, a doctor or a member of the rescue service
- Refusing a drug test
- Leaving a checkpoint after the time limit
- Any other infringement of the rules will incur a sanction to be decided by the race jury
Alteration to the course / cancellation of the race
The organisers reserve the right to alter the course or location of the first aid posts and food stations at any time and without notice.
Should the weather be too bad (heavy rain or snow at altitude, high risk of storm …) the start may be delayed.
In case of bad weather and for safety reasons, the organisers reserve the right to stop the event, change the route or alter the time limits.
In case of cancellation of the event for all causes, no refund will be possible (a possible postponement of part of the registration fee may be considered for the following year)
The organisers hold civil liability insurance for the duration of the event, which covers financial loss for which they, their officials or the participants are responsible.
Each competitor must have personal accident insurance covering possible search and rescue costs in France. Such insurance can be taken out with any organisation of the competitor’s choice, and in particular with the GBC Montagne insurance company, partner of the 6000D:
Impact Multisports is a specific insurance for sports activities.
According to Article L333-2 of the Sports Code, “the organizers of sports events […] are the owners of the right to use the events or competitions they organize.”
