Unbelievable becomes reality! All places in the limit of 1200 competitors were „sold out“ very quickly again. We registered over 1000 entries just one minute after the entry system opened. We cannot offer more places, we have to be glad that we can let 1200 competitors run in such beautiful and attractive area. We really appreciate you interest in our competition and we will try to organize very „Nice holidays“!
Only to runners correctly entered in ORIS entry system we can now guarantee that they can start. Personal data of your entry (SI number, class) can be edited directly in ORIS in term of entries until July 31st 2016. Runners entered as substitutes (yellow marked) should check the entry system and only if they move among correctly entered runners they can send the entry fee and participate in the race. Please, do not send us entry fee if you are among substitutes.
We kindly ask all entered runners, if you know you cannot participate, please cancel your entry in ORIS entry system as soon as possible to offer your place to the next substitute. Thank you!
