          Trail Brussels F.A.Q. 's


          • What's the difference between a trailrun and a NaturaRun?

            En trail l'accent est mis sur l'aventure. Les parcours empruntent quasiment entièrement des sentiers, dont certains assez techniques. Les montées et descentes peuvent être très raides, vous devrez parfois traverser des rivières ou passer sur des roches glissantes. Ces courses supposent d'avoir de l'expérience et le goût du défi.

            Les NaturaRuns sont eux une version "light" des trails. Ils se pratiquent dans de magnifiques lieux en pleine nature mais sont moins techniques. Les NaturaRuns empruntent plutôt des chemins forestiers ou des chemins de champs et sont accessibles à tous, peu importe le niveau.

            Attention: nos NaturaRuns les plus durs pourraient s'appeler trails...et vice-versa.

          • Are dogs and/or poles allowed?

            Unfortunately dogs are not allowed during this event.

            Poles are allowed.

          • Due to circumstances I cannot participate. What should I do?

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

            After you have logged in, search for the relevant order and change the details.

          • Do I need specific shoes to run this race?

            Des chaussures de trails sont toujours recommandées lorsque vous participez à une course sur sentiers. Elles offrent plus de stabilité sur des terrains accidentés et accrochent mieux sur des surfaces telles que les racines, la roche, etc. De plus, cette adhérence sera particulièrement utile pour les montées et descentes techniques.
