QUARTZ Event Program

A commitment of solidarity as Organizer to preserve the health of your participants
and contribute to a doping-free sport

The QUARTZ Event Program includes of course all the services related to the safety of the QUARTZ Original program but in addition is committed to preserving the health of your participants and the ethics of your competition. The QUARTZ Event program allows to offer a medical check-up before the competition from biological analyzes to be carried out in the laboratory. The purpose of this check-up is twofold, check first of all that the athlete is in good health but also ensure that his biological profile does not present inconsistencies related to possible doping. The QUARTZ Event Program adjusts according to what you want to set up on your event. Do not hesitate to contact us for an “à la carte” option.

A real plus for your participants

When we ask participants and when they are asked when their last health check with medical analyzes, we quickly realize that it is often several years, is not ... Yet a simple blood test can give a lot of information on your health and can identify fatigue states or deficiencies. The paradox is that many participants invest in their equipment, pay attention to their lifestyle but ultimately very few perform regular checkups to know if everything is fine!

A turnkey solution

You can offer this service as a paid option to your participants or decide to offer some to funding directly or indirectly through bibs solidarity. Once this option is proposed during registration, you have nothing more to manage as an organizer; everything is managed by our teams. Your participants will receive an SMS alert and an e-mail within 30 days before the start of your event that contains all the information needed to carry out a biological analysis anywhere in the world. The participant goes to a laboratory of his choice with his smartphone, carries out his blood test and returns home. He has nothing to pay on the spot. Within 7 days on average after this blood test, he will be able to find all his results at the level of his space health with a comment and indications to follow. We then speak of a program QUARTZ Event level 1 .

To preserve the ethics of your event

The QUARTZ Event Level 2 Program is made for the organizers who wish concretely to preserve the ethics of their competition. It is particularly aimed at elite athletes present on your event. Like all other participants, these elite athletes will be invited to create their health space. We then define a biological analysis strategy towards these elite sportsmen, in the 30 days before AND also on the spot the day before the departure, which will allow at the same time to protect their health (by identifying possible pathologies) but also to contribute to a sport without doping. In fact, the abnormal biological profile identified by our medical committee (that is to say, the elite athlete would present a potentially vital risk to start with such a profile) a "no start rule" can be applied and the elite athlete is not then allowed to depart for health reasons (legally possible with an item added to your rules of procedure). In parallel, as provided for in Article 5.8 of the World Anti-Doping Code, all such information on the profile of the elite athlete concerned is transmitted to the organizations in charge of anti-doping which can then better target their control strategy.
