Time Trials:

There are 2 official time trials (4km and 8km) during the week:

Tuesday and Thursday—17:45 during summer and 17:30 during winter times

There are time keepers in the evenings, but it is each athlete’s responsibility to see that his/her time is recorded.  Only the timekeepers and Snoepie workers can run before time trail.  Although we have a reasonably safe route, be careful and try to run in single file.  REFLECTOR belts must be worn from APRIL till the end of September. A trophy will be awarded to the athlete who runs the most 4km and 8km time trials.  Only one 4km and one 8km time trial a week will count.


Walkers are welcome and we will arrange with walkers to start earlier.

Medals will be awarded to athletes who ran the following amount of time trials:

GOLD:  to all with 40+ TT

SILVER:  to all with 30+ TT

4km + 8km BRONZE:  to all with 20+ TT


It is required that each team member work at least on one Marathon and one Short Race at least twice a year.  Your captain will Communicate this with you.
