This principle implies the following rules:

The competitor has the obligation to undergo these checks, under penalty of disqualification.
- The refreshment points are supplied with drinks and food to be consumed on the spot. The organization supplies only natural water for the filling of water bottles or camelbaks. At the start of each refreshment point, runners must have the amount of water and food needed to arrive at the next refreshment point.
