  • 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 SQM Time 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 !

Race information


  • Start procedure

    There is a mass start under the starting arch for each distance. 

    To prevent congestion on the course, you will start in small batches via a narrow starting lane ("rolling start").
    Your time starts running as soon as you cross the starting line.





    However, the rankings are based on actual times, NOT net times. 

    If you decide to participate in another distance, you must inform the race secretary before starting.

  • Cut-off times

    Check the time limits in the tab "Course" or  "Program".

  • Podium / Prize allocation

    The podiums will be held as soon as the third runner crosses the finish line.
    So be sure to stay close by. 

     Prizes will not be sent by post in case of absence.

  • Aid stations / No plastic cups / Personal drop bag

    AID STATIONS

    You will find several refreshment points/aid stations on the course with food and drink. Their exact locations can be found on the course map of Trace de Trail (see the tab "Course"). You will find water, salty snacks, cakes, soup,...Attention: we do not use plastic cups at the refreshment posts, so you have to bring your own cup/container.

    DROPBAG

    A personal dropbag service is provided for the participants of the 100km. You can drop your dropbag (ask for a white Sportevents Dropbag at the race office!) the day of the race in the morning at aid station next to the start, kilometre point 45 on the race and 20meter from the start.
    After the race you can pick it up there (20meter from the finish).

    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.
