A proof of performance is required when you want to leave in a preferential airlock, namely < 45min for 10km and < 1h30 for 20km. In this case, you must download a proof of performance on the same distance during an official race that is less than 2 years old.

Competition

If I can not collect my bib myself, someone else can do it, as long as they have:

- a copy of my ID

- my bib coupon (sent by email one week before the event)

ATTENTION! NO BIB WILL BE SENT BY POST !

During the Race

On the refreshments during your race you will find: powder, gels, bananas, oranges, crackers and sugar.

The arrival supply will contain: bananas, oranges, apples, salted biscuits, sweet biscuits, soup and Hopbox dried fruits.

The time limit represents the maximum time that a participant has to complete the full distance of the race course. This time limit is calculated on a walking pace basis so do not panic, in theory rare are the cases where participants exceed this limit.

WHAT HAPPENS IF I AM OUT OF TIME?

The organisation on D-Day has to deal with important logistical issues. We have a compromise with the city so as not to block road access for too long. The organisation reserves the right to remove your bib if you exceed the time limit set on your race format (you can still finish your race but the security of the participant will no longer be engaged by the organisation).
