As race organizers Online Registration is our preferred method of entry. Online registration allows us to prepare better for the race at hand and we have a better idea of the amount of logistics that we need to prepare. Online Registration will close 2 days before the start of the race, and only paid participants will be regarded as online entries (or pre-entries).
Online registration can be done at www.evententry.co.za
People who are unable to access the online registration platform will be permitted to enter at certain facilities across Bloemfontein. These venues will be listed on the official event page under the @evententry Facebook page. Manual entries will be closed 2 days before the start of an event.
Late Entries will take place before the start of the race and will typically be the last hour before the start of the race. On all accounts we try to prevent a large number of late entries as it adds to the logistical challenges, therefore we request all competitors to make use of our online platform or manual entry points when possible. Late entries will be liable for an additional R20 penalty fee.
RACE DAY ROUTINE
Check-In takes place 1 hour before the start of the race. During race check-in final administration is concluded including late payments, number allocation, shoulder marking etc… Competitors who have made use of online entry or pre-entry will have a much shorter race check-in. Competitors who have not made use of pre-entry will have to complete an entry form first before they can be checked in to the race.
