In case of injury, you must notify HIGHLANDER staff at checkpoints and/or call emergency services by dialing 062/46 46 46 (as described in your HIGHLANDER ID received at registration).

  • Only Dojkinci, Zavojsko Lake and Temska checkpoints are positioned to allow easy vehicle access. Consult checkpoint staff in case of a mild injury or if withdrawing from HIGHLANDER.
  • HIGHLANDER staff includes medical and mountain rescue service personnel (MRS).
  • Serious injuries will be handled by the MRS and available emergency services.
  • Staff will call or text you if you do not show at the checkpoint during opening hours. If you are unavailable, we will NOT start a search and rescue.
  • Search and rescue will be launched by the appropriate services only in cases of immediate danger to a participant’s life or health.
