How to know if my registration is ok?
Once your registration has been completed, you will receive a confirmation email with an individual access code to allow you to modify or complete your registration file and in particular to add your proof of aptitude if you did not do so during registration.

Bib number and starting lines
Allocation of race numbers:
The allocation of your race number will be done about 1 month before the event when the registrations will be closed. You will be able to see it on your personal space.
Your number will be established automatically according to your performance index and will determine your wave and/or SAS start.
In case of error when entering your name or your date of birth you will not be recognised. You will therefore start in the last SAS.
Once the number has been assigned, it will not be possible to make any further changes.
Practical information on the SAS and starting waves:
We differentiate between waves and SAS:
- A starting wave corresponds to a starting time
- For each wave, there can be 1 or 2 SAS in order to distribute the runners within the starting wave according to their level and to fluidify the starts.
The SAS are automatically set up by our timing software 1 month before the date of the event based on the performance index you have at that time.
Your race time will start when you cross the start line.
Time barriers are calculated on the start time of the last wave.
Failure to comply with the SAS and / or start wave will result in sanctions and in particular disqualification as indicated in the regulations.
Change of race once you have registered
It is possible to change the race format once you have registered under the following conditions:
- The race you want to be switched to must not be complete
- If you choose a race with a higher price, we will ask you to pay the difference by bank transfer
- If you choose a racer with a lower price, we will not refund the difference.
For any such request, we invite you to send an email to email@example.com indicating your file number and the race you wish to be switched to
Impossibility to run once registered
All registered persons have the possibility to transfer their bib to the person of their choice until one month before the event.
When you register, you also have the possibility to subscribe to a cancellation insurance.
