Rulebook & Rules
General Rules for Unicon Participants
Unicon participants are expected to abide by the following laws and rules:
The laws of the United States and of the State of Minnesota
The rules of each host facility. For example:
The three main facilities -- Bemidji State University (BSU), Bemidji High School (BHS), and the Sanford Center -- are all tobacco-free.
Bemidji State University and Bemidji High School are alcohol-free.
The IUF Rulebook
Unicon 21 will abide by the most recent rulebook published by the International Unicycling Federation. The 2023 Rulebook committee is currently meeting and the next version of the rulebook will be published prior to Unicon 21. The 2019 Rulebook is linked below, and it will be replaced by the 2023 version as soon as it is available.
The 2019 IUF Rulebook identifies each competitor's personal responsibility as follows:
All attendees should remember that they are guests of the convention hosts, and ambassadors of our sport to all new riders, visitors from far away, and to people in the hosting town. The convention hosts are renting the competition and convention facilities, and attendees are expected to treat the facilities well. Each rider is responsible for the actions of his or her family, as well as non-riding teammates. Riders may lose placement in races, be disqualified from events, and/or be ejected from the convention if they do not work to minimize disruptions from those they are responsible for. The International Unicycling Federation does not support performance-enhancing drugs in sport and strives for clean competition. (See this website's Health/Doping section regarding adherance to the world anti-doping code).
The IUF reminds all competitors that Unicon participation is a privilege, not a right. You are a guest at the Host's event. You may be in an unfamiliar country, and different laws and customs may be considered the norm. The Host and convention officials determine whether certain events, age groups, or policies will be used. As an attendee, you are obligated to obey all rules and decisions of convention officials and hosts.
