Timing is by use of the ChampionChip only. Please select, if you want to rent (6.00 EUR) or buy (31.00 EUR) a ChampionChip.
If you decide to buy a chip, the chip will be sent within 14 days on your stated address.
If you decide to rent a chip, you can render the chip undamaged by two hours after the event (30th of October 2011) at the chip return (This option won’t be able, if you buy a chip). Then you only pay 6.00 EUR for the chip rent.
Or you decide to keep the chip to yourself after the event. Then you have concluded a sale contract with your registration and after the event your account or credit card will be charged with an amount of 25.00 EUR. So a payment on the day of the event is invalid. Should you keep the chip, you can use it at any future races where timing is carried out by chip. Please attach the chip to the laces of your running shoe, otherwise it will not function and your time will not be registered. You cannot participate without a chip! The chip is not transferable.

Text service
We can text your unofficial time to your mobile phone free of charge. To take advantage of this service, please fill in your mobile phone number on the registration form and tick box A.
Do you want your split times as well? Then tick box B. This service costs 3.00 EUR. If someone accompanying you also wishes to see just how you are getting on in the race we can text your split times and your finishing time to a second mobile phone. Please put down two mobile phone numbers on the registration form and tick box C. This service costs 5.00 EUR.

ASICS souvenir T-shirt
When registering you can order an ASICS T-shirt for 20.00 EUR or an ASICS long-sleeve Shirt for 30.00 EUR. This can be collected when you pick up your start number.

Medal engraving
In the finish area you can have your personal finisher’s medal engraved with your name and overall time; state-of-the-art technology means the engraving takes around two seconds at an additional cost of only 8.00 EUR.
