For the Half marathon it’s time at 1:30 pm. to prepare for the start and find your place in the starting lane. It is important where you line up in the starting area. We wish everyone to get the best possible race; therefore, we have put up signs down along the starting lane telling the expected finishing time.
Pace-setters with large balloons indicating the expected time will stand next to the sign. Together with your chosen pace-setter you can keep the pace that is your best. These are the following groups of pace-setters:, 1.30, 1.35, 1.40, 1.45, 1.50, 1.55, 2.00, 2.05, 2.10, and 2.15. Your chip will give all participants a brutto- and a nettotime, so there is no reason for placing yourself too far ahead.

Brutto-time = from the starting-signal = till you cross the starting-line.

Netto-time = from you cross the starting-line = till you pass the finishing-line.

The max three-hour limit is made visible by two bike-riders. A bus will drive after the last participants to pick up people, who want it. If you must use a longer period of time, and you are behind the bike-riders, it is your own responsibility to follow the general traffic-rules.
