4. IMUNITY HOURS
Immunity hours are predetermined times during which participants are IMMUNE, that is, the pursuers no longer catch you and cannot exclude you from the game.
During the immunity hour, participants MUST come to the competition center or the IMMUNITY ZONE to check in themselves with the competition judges. If the competitor does not check in during this immunity hour, the competitor is disqualified from the competition.
During the immunity hour, the participant can safely eat, change clothes, replenish water reserves. But until the end of the immunity hour, the participants must leave the immunity zone, because when it ends, the PURSUERS will start looking for you again.
The duration of the immunity hour will become shorter and shorter after each round of pursuit.
Hours of Immunity:
October 8: 09:00–10:00; 13:00 – 14:30; 17:30-18:30; 21:30-22:15;

Participants who will be caught in the first round of the chase, namely on October 8 from 10:00 AM to 13:00 PM, will have an opportunity to return to the game by winning a special task that will be given during the next immunity hour.
There will also be 6 special places or OASES indicated on the map, where useful things will be placed from time to time, but at times unknown to the participants and pursuers: valuable gifts, food or items useful for the game, which the participants can get at their disposal. Some of the OASES will be drinking points.
A total of three BLACK CHESTS will be placed in some OASES at a certain time, one of which will contain a very valuable gift that will be revealed before the race begins. In order for the participant to claim this special gift, the participant must deliver the BLACK CHEST to the competition center uncaught. In the center, chest will be opened to see if it contain this special prize. BLACK CHESTS will also have a GPS tracking devices.
6. IMUNITY CARD
At the beginning of the competition, all participants will be issued control cards with 6 mark fields. A composter with a unique symbol will be placed in each OASIS, which can be used to make a mark on the control card. The first three contestants to arrive at the competition center during the immunity hour with a fully completed control card after the first and second chase rounds will receive an IMMUNITY CARD.
If a player is caught by a pursuer, the IMMUNITY CARD can be used to return to the game after the next immunity hour. The immunity card is valid until the 4th round (including), or October 9 at 01:45 AM.

Pursuers are persons who have no problem chasing you for 24 hours and looking for you in the deepest jungle – we will reveal them on the spot on October 8.
You will recognize the pursuers by their bright white wristbands and by the fact that they will probably move very fast in your direction.
