2022 EDITION RULES
The following rules apply to the San Silvestre LPGC race, an event organised by Top Time Eventos S.L.U. and promoted by the City Council of Las Palmas de Gran Canaria, the Municipal Sports Institute, the Island Council of Gran Canaria with the Island Sports Institute and the Gran Canaria Tourist Board. In case of doubt in the interpretation of these rules, the opinion and decision of the organisation shall prevail. By registering, all participants accept these rules in their entirety.
By accepting these rules participants also accept the disclaimer of liability for participants, detailed in Section 14.
Section 1 - Date and Place
The 20th edition will take place on 31 December 2022, starting with the children’s race at 4 p.m. and the 6km charity race at 5p.m.
The course will take place in the streets of the city of Las Palmas de Gran Canaria and will cover 6 km for the charity race and 600 m for the children’s race.
Section 2 - Participation
Participation is open to anyone who has successfully completed the registration process.
We have two modalities of participation:
- The 6km charity race: 6 Km for all those who want to join us and are over 12 years old.
- Charity KIDS: With an approximate distance of 600 metres for children up to 12 years old (inclusive).
There is a maximum number of participants. Participation will be estimated according to timeframes. In order to be the biggest charity challenge, we will encourage early registration by giving gifts and having a draw among the registered participants. We aim to be the most supportive event again and we want to achieve this with your help.
Section 3 - Registration, deadlines and fees
Registration will cost €10 for both modalities. With your registration, you will receive a commemorative T-shirt of the event.
Registration will open on 7 November at 20:00 and will close on 25 December at 23:59 or when there are no more places available.
Participants can register:
- Through the official website of the event www.sansilvestre.es

After the deadline, NO registrations will be processed.
Registration will be deemed to be completed once the registration fee has been paid. You will receive an e-mail confirming your registration and you will not need to print any proof or receipt to collect the race kit.
You can check the status of your registration in the REGISTRATION section by clicking on the CHECK YOUR REGISTRATION button.
Section 4 - Personal and non-transferable

In accordance with the provisions of Organic Law 15/1999, of 13 December 1999, on Personal Data Protection, we hereby inform you that participation in the event implies consent to the incorporation of any personal data provided into the automated file owned by the organisation.

Section 9 - Participants’ Responsibility
It is the sole responsibility of participants to be fit for the competition, i.e. to be in good general health and to have sufficient physical, technical and mental preparation for the event.
By registering, participants declare that they meet the requirements that make it possible for them to participate in the race without causing major inconveniences for themselves, the other competitors and the organisation. Participants fully and consciously assume for themselves and as their own the risks derived from their participation in the event, and the organisation is completely exempted from any liability that may arise as a result of the damages that participation in the event may entail for participants, their assigns or third parties.
In the event that the organisers consider that weather conditions or other contingencies beyond their control put the runners’ physical integrity at risk, they may decide to postpone the race or change its course. In such a case, registration fees will not be refunded, either in full or in part.
The Organisers accept no liability for any damage, harm or injury that, by participating in this event, runners may cause to themselves or to other people or even in the case that third parties cause damage to any of the participants.
All participants, simply by taking part in the race, accept the rules indicated above, and in case of doubt, the Organisers’ criteria will prevail.
Section 10 - Right of admission
The right of admission is recognised in section 59.1.e) of Royal Decree 2816/1982, of 27 August 1982, which approves the General Regulations governing Entertainment and Recreational Activities, whose scope is extended to all types of establishments intended for the public, regardless of whether they are publicly or privately owned. The organisers reserve the right to cancel the registration of any participant at any time.
Considering that I have registered for the 20th edition of the San Silvestre LPGC race, I agree to comply with the rules governing the race, and those of the race management. I accept the rules which can be found on the organisation’s website.
-acknowledge that I am solely responsible for all my personal effects and sports equipment during the event and its collateral activities.
-affirm and verify that I am physically prepared and sufficiently trained for this competition and that I have passed the appropriate medical examinations. As I am physically well prepared for the competition, I am in good general health and I suffer no illness, physical defect or injury that could be aggravated by my participation in the event. If I suffer any type of injury or any other incident that could seriously damage my health during the race, I will inform the race Organisers as soon as possible by raising my hand in the water or in the medical area at the finishing line.
-agree to receive medical treatment at my own expense in case of injury, accident and/or illness during the San Silvestre LPGC race. I am aware that this type of competition, as it takes place in a natural environment and places that are difficult to control, entails an additional risk for participants. I, therefore, take part freely and voluntarily and I assume all risks and consequences resulting from my participation.
I give my permission for the free use of my name and of any picture of me taken during this edition of the San Silvestre LPGC race, in any post or media.
I hold the organisers, event directors, collaborators, sponsors and volunteers of the San Silvestre LPGC race harmless of any responsibility or claim on my part, including any direct or indirect damage or injury and cases of death. This shall not apply if said damage or injury is caused by the organisation’s wrongdoing or negligence.
I have sufficient physical ability, technical skills and survival resources to ensure my own safety under the conditions of autonomy in which the event takes place. Likewise, I have the sports and safety equipment required by the Organisers and I guarantee that it is in good condition and complies with regulations, and that I know how to use it properly and I will carry it with me throughout the competition.
I understand and undertake to comply with the safety rules and protocols established by the Organisers for the San Silvestre LPGC race, as well as to behave responsibly so as not to increase the risks to my physical or mental integrity. I will follow the instructions and abide by the decisions taken by the organisers (judges, doctors and organisers) on safety issues.
I authorise the Medical Services of the race to perform any treatment or diagnostic test that I may need, whether or not I am in a position to request it. I agree to withdraw from the race if they deem it necessary for health reasons.
I will not use banned substances, considered as DOPING. The organisers may carry out doping tests on the participants. In case of a positive result, participants will be disqualified.
My bib number is personal and non-transferable and cannot be worn by any other participant or person in my place.
I am aware that the organising entity reserves the right to admit or reject participants, even after paying the subscription fees, which would be returned to me if I am not admitted.
I undertake to follow the general guidelines of respect for the environment:
- To use caution on the course.
- Not to cause any disturbances to the natural processes and functioning of ecosystems.
- To perform any physiological needs in appropriate places.
- Not to dump or abandon objects or solid or liquid waste outside the places usually designated for waste disposal and collection.
