BONEFIGHT is not a contact sport! Physical contact during the race, including interference by means of holding, pushing, hitting, and deliberate hindrance resulting in a competitor’s slowing down, falling, or drifting off-course shall lead to automatic disqualification. Unavoidable “casual contact” may be acceptable. Committee decisions are final. Re-runs due to intentional contact will not be permitted. An athlete who is disqualified because of intentional contact will automatically be ranked last in the respective round (DNS excluded). All contact infractions shall be sanctioned at the discretion of the Competition Committee. Any disqualifications shall be announced immediately after each heat in a designated area at the bottom and/or top of the track.
If, for any reason, an athlete Did Not Start (DNS) at the starting gate, he will be disqualified.
A false start is considered a disqualification.
