Frequently Asked Questions FAQ
At what time should I show up before the race?
Be early, because you will have to collect your bib, stick finger and welcome pack. We advise you to come at least an hour before the start time. Bib collection will close 30 minutes before the race.
Can I register on the day? What is the deadline to register?
No, you cannot register on the day. Registrations close on the 29th August 2021 at 23h59.
How does the race work?
When you arrive at the race headquarter (HQ), you will get your welcome pack and a stick finger which will record your race time.
10 minutes before the start time, at the departure, you will receive more information at the pre-race briefing.
Then it is time to start! With your teammate, carefully follow the indications on the map and enjoy the activities encountered on route.
What if my teammate pulls out?
You can change teammate before the race departure. Please contact us to organise the change.
You can also check on our Facebook page if someone else is looking for a teammate.
How does the e-card/’finger stick’ works?
The e-card (also named ‘finger stick) contained a microchip and is needed to time the race. It is attached to a finger and is inserted into checkpoints. If a checkpoint has been missed, a time penalty will be added to your race time. If you win some of the surprise activities, you can win bonus time.
What is included in the registration?
Registration includes a welcome pack, access to aid stations during the race and some food offered at the end of the race.
