              • Pick up bib number and T-shirt

                Bib numbers are not sent in advance and can only be collected from the race secretary on the day of the race. You will receive your bib number by email a few days before the event and you can also view it on the list of participants that comes online at the same time as the mailing.

                You will receive all extras you ordered (such as a T-shirt or eco-cup) together with your bib number. It is possible to pick up the numbers of your family and/or friends. You must report all last minute changes in distance to the secretariat.

              • Change name, distance and / or cancel

                Changing your distance, buying a T-shirt, adapting your data and even canceling it can ONLY be done through your Larssie account. So you do this all by yourself!

                After you have logged in, search for the relevant order and change the details. If your new data results in a lower cost price, your account will be credited and you can use that amount for another registration. If your new information leads to a higher registration price, you still have to pay that amount to complete the change.

                If you wish to cancel, your account will be credited in accordance with our cancellation conditions. You can then spend this amount on another registration later.

                Attention: Please check the conditions of the organizer to find out until when  you can cancel and how much your account will be credited !

              • Showers - Dressing rooms - Bags drop-off

                There are changing rooms and showers.

                Attention: If your shoes aren't clean, you can't enter the changing rooms. Think about the other participants who also wants to change clothes in a clean room. Wash your shoes before you enter!

                You can hand in your sports bag at the 'storage of sports bags' stand.
                Make sure you bring a well-closing bag because loose pieces or open bags are not accepted.

                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 52km 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.
