The SWIMRUN CHEERS SPRINT & EXPERIENCE have any cut-offs.

We have cut-offs in our events to make sure that we can have a safe race, these are put in place so that everyone has a possibility to finish before dark and without jeopardizing the safety of others by stretching the safety organization too much. Please respect this and the people enforcing them.

 

REFRESHMENT STATION

We will have energy and liquid stations along the course as marked in the course map.

Please eat and drink what is offered, do not take more as there are others behind you.

Please re-use your cup instead of taking multiple cups.

We will have water and electrolytes, energy bars, gel by Inksport at all stations.

Besides this we will have fruit and normal food.

Make sure you don’t drop the wrappers on the ground, you can leave it in the garbage cans at the energy stations.

If you need, we can leave your own pack to the refreshment station. You have to bring the pack at the briefing the day before the race.

 

RACE COURSE AND SAFETY

If the race organization believe there is a danger for the racers or the organization based on weather or other conditions, the course can be changed the day before or even in the middle of the race. Safety is our priority.

Safety is guaranteed in water and on land through doctors, ambulances, ground teams, jet skis, canoes, inflatable boats thanks to the Red Cross, Sogit, Coast Guard, Nautical Police, Volunteers.

 

RULES

Basic rules, make sure you understand as we will enforce them.

  • The racers have to follow the marked route. If not, you can get time penalty or disqualification.
  • It is not allowed to get assistance from other people than the race organization during the race. Breach of this rule will result in disqualification.
