STARTING POINT

Meet us at the starting line on: Friday, 20 January 2023.

We recommend arriving at least 30 minutes early for your designated race time. This way you’ll have plenty of time for a good stretch and warm-up, and allow for you to find the right position at the start.

STARTING POSITION TIPS

If you feel like winning the race and breaking a world record, position yourself at the beginning of the runners’ group. If your ambitions are more moderate, please allow the fast runners to start at the front and position yourself further in the crowd.

This is particularly important for popular categories, such as the 5 km run, which has about 3000 participants. The cut-off time for the full marathon is at 1 pm, when the roads need to reopen for car traffic. However, even after 1 pm we will provide a safe escort to the finish line for every remaining participant.

Good luck in your category! We believe in you and know you can OUTRUN YOUR LIMITS.
