Entries for 56km
Runners who have credit cards and Internet access are encouraged to enter online from 21 October 2015 onwards.
Runners do not need to qualify before entering the race. Even though it is a prerequisite for participation, information can be supplied at a later stage. Entries can be done without having renewed the provincial licence number as it can be completed later. Athletic club membership is not optional but it can be done after entry. Runners with five or more medals can use the previous year’s race as their qualifier (i.e. in 2016 their 2015 OMTOM time can be used as a qualifier). Blue/permanent number holders do not need to qualify, provided they have run in either of the previous two years. No downgrades to the Half Marathon are allowed (only substitutions).
Runners participate at their own risk. The organisers and the sponsors cannot be held responsible for any damage, injuries, illness or losses incurred whatsoever - whether before, during or after the race.
