Athletes can only register using the official registration form which must be completed in full and signed in person by the participant or online.

Payment may only be made by cheque or direct debit. Postal registrations which do not include a cheque or any direct debit instruction will not be processed. The debiting of the cheque or direct debit instruction shall be deemed to constitute the paying-in slip and receipt.
The organiser shall be entitled, in cases of force majeure or on account of official orders or for safety reasons, to make changes to the event or to cancel the event. In these cases, the organiser shall not be obliged to pay any compensation to the athlete. Consideration shall only be given to reimbursement of the entry fee when the event is cancelled completely if the cancellation is the fault of the organiser. If the organiser is responsible for the cancellation of the event, only partial compensation shall be paid equivalent to the difference remaining following deduction of that proportion of the outlay which the organiser has already made which is assigned to the athlete; the onus shall be on the athlete to demonstrate that this outlay was lower. If an athlete who has already registered does not turn up at the start or they declare to the organiser in advance that they are unable to take part, there shall be no entitlement to repayment of the entry fee as an administration fee. This shall also apply in the event that the athlete withdraws for a justified reason; however, in the latter case the onus shall be on the athlete to demonstrate that the organisational outlay incurred by the athlete for passing on their starting place would have been less than the entry fee which they paid.

All starters who register in time will receive the event information and their registration confirmation sent to them in advance. Registrations after this date will be processed, but they will not receive a reply with the registration confirmation. REGISTRATION CHANGES are NOT possible.
