Race information


  • Startprocedure

    There is a jmass start under the starting arch for each distance. Your time starts when you cross the starting line. To prevent congestion on the course, you will start in small batches via a narrow starting lane ("rolling start"). Your time starts to run as soon as you cross the starting line.

    However, the rankings will be based on the actual finish time and NOT on the net times.

    If you decide to run a different distance on the day itself, you must inform the secretariat before the start.

  • Cut-off times

    Consult the tab "program" for the time limits.

  • Podium / Prize allocation

    The prizes will be awarded during an award ceremony near the finish area.

    The exact hour will be decided on the day itself and communicated by the speaker or the race director. The ceremonies are held approximately 15 minutes after the arrival of the 3rd finisher.

    There are no age group podia, only overall for men and women.

  • Aid stations / No plastic cups / Personal drop bag

    AID STATIONS

    There are multiple aid stations during the race. The exact locations are indicated on the course map (see the "course" tab). The supplies have standard water, salty snacks, cake, candy, ... Attention! There are no plastic cups at the aid stations, so you have to bring your own drinking cup or bottle.


    PERSONAL DROP BAG

    Participants of the 53km have the possibility to hand over a bag of personal items (own food, new pair of socks, other clothing, ...) to the race office before the start. This bag (numbered and made available by the organization) will be taken to the checkpoint at km38 and will be available to the participants there. After the competition you can pick up the bag again at the registrations from 15h30 to 17h00.

    NO PLASTIC CUPS!

    Because we respect the environment we do not provide disposable plastic cups. So you have to bring a drinking cup or bottle yourself. This applies to the aid stations along the way as well as at the finish. We have handy eco-cups, which are reusable drinking cups that you can fold, to be purchased with your online registration and/or to be purchased at the race office for 3 euros.
