Participants may bring additional equipment, provided that the participant must carry it with them until the next immunity hour.

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.

5. OASES

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.

7. PURSUERS

The aim of the pursuers is to find, catch up and tap to eliminate the players from the game!

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.

Puruers can catch at all times except during the IMMUNITY HOUR. After the end of the immunity hour, pursuers resume catching from the competition center or IMMUNITY ZONE.

Pursuers will only be allowed to use the given maps and will not be allowed to view live GPS location of participants.

However, starting with the 5th round of the pursue (on October 9 from 01:45 to 04:45 AM), in each round the pursuers will be able to see the location of the participants twice – 1 h and 2 h after the start of the round.

On October 9, after midnight 0:00, pursuers will be allowed to start using additional devices, namely walkie-talkies, thermal cameras, night vision equipment, to help catch participants.
