When you register we ask you to say how quickly you expect to finish the race. We ask so that we can as easily as possible organise the start. Like all other races we want to put on and smooth, safe and good start for everyone. To do this we rely on everyone who has signed up indicating as precisely as possible the time they think they are going to run.
More will probably give up a shorter time than they want – to get further ahead in the starting field. This may seem like a smart move – but if all submit the correct time, we will get a field with less crowding and chaos.
Remember: The race is not decided in the first one to three kilometers. If everyone takes into consideration those faster than themselves, we lower the risk of accidents. Should you run past someone, pass on the left.
