DELETE 964.6.3 If an obstacle is situated within 300m of the finish line, an Athlete is allowed to stop to carry out necessary repairs to the harness or carriage (missing or disconnected trace, pole strap or reins) without penalty as long as he stops within the signed 30 metres after leaving the last Obstacle, as per Article C964.7.1. Stopping for any other reason between the last Obstacle or the 300 metre sign, whichever is closer to the Finish Line in Section B, will incur 10 penalties for each occurrence.
Reason for Change: delete redundant course penalties after last obstacle.
