Be well prepared

It will be a special experience this weekend! During your race you will hear different messages. There will be an official start signal and your time will be registered as well. Did you know that you can also just listen to your own playlist, on Spotify for instance, during your run? MyTrace will automatically mute your music for the audio updates.

Make sure to read the tips & tricks below thoroughly, they will help you to bring the finish a bit closer.

1. Start from your home!

2. Choose your start time.
There are several starting moments per distance. You can still change your start wave (up to 5 minutes before the start of your chosen time)

6. Run responsible!
Be sensible, listen to your body and drink enough, especially before your race!

7. Battle your friends
Do you have friends or family members who want to register? They can still register, it’s free of charge.

  1. Make sure you are ready on time and ensure a good warm-up.
  2. Five minutes before the start you will receive a push message on your phone. Now you can press on the'check-in' button in the MyTrace app. Two minutes before the start, the speaker will welcome you!
  3. Get ready, put your phone away and wait for the start signal.
  4. Enjoy and experience of your event.

Follow the traffic rules and think of other road users. Stop in front of traffic lights and watch out when crossing the road. Be clever, listen to your body and drink enough. Especially before your race.
