It's not just a race, it's an adventure

General

On Saterday 5th of May 2018, the forth edtion of the Amphiman Swimrun race in Belgium will be organised in and around the “Lacs de L’Eau de d’Heure”.

The Distances

  • Long distance: 38km (33,5 run + 4,6 km swim)
  • Mid distance: 28km (24 km run + 3,6 km swim)
  • Short distance: 18km (15,5 km run + 2,4 km swim)

Time Gates

At every Energy Station, a Time Gate will be set. People will have to pass that Gate before being able to continue the race.

LLEH 38km and 28km will be assisted by GPS Tracking

To make everything fair, all teams of the 38km and 28km distance will have to carry a GPS tracker.  It is included in the price. The GPS will be carried in a small pocket in the jersey on the back at shoulder hight.
The advantage is plural: to make sure every team follows the right track and people at home can follow the race on internet.

Short Distance = No longer the long cold swim on the end

To give starting swimrun athletes the chance to participate without pushing them too hard, we decided to no longer let them swim the 800m in the cold water of the Platte Taille Lake.
They are allowed to return over the dam.
The consequence is we cancelled any price money for this distance (and added it to the long distance).
This way the short race is more a ‘startToSwimrun’ race or a ‘have fun’ race en less a tough race.
