It's not just a race, it's an adventure
On Saturday 5th of May 2018, the fourth edition of the Amphiman Swimrun race in Belgium will be organised in and around the “Lacs de L’Eau d’Heure”.
At every Energy Station, a Time Gate will be installed. People will have to pass that Gate before being able to continue the race.
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 height.
The advantage is dual: ensure that every team follows the right track and provide the possibility for people at home to follow the race on internet.
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.
As a consequence we cancelled any prize money for this distance (and have added it to the long distance).
This makes the short distance more of a ‘startToSwimrun’ race or a ‘have fun’ race and less of a tough challenge.
The day programme is as follows:

08:00 Opening Race location and verification of the course.
08:15 Opening secretariat. Race number pickup.
