Start Area Logistics

  • If you have a half-way bag or a finisher bag, these can be deposited in the hall. Tags will be provided at the luggage counter.

  • Immediately after registration and bag-drop in the hall – move to the starting area at the river side (400m, follow sign boards). Do not stay in the hall as this will slow down the registration process.



  • The 50k category will start first. Line up behind the starting banner and be ready for start at least 10 minutes before start.

  • 100k category, line up well behind the 50k category, but DO NOT start together with them as you will be taking a separate route.
