Format


Please see the relevant section in the by-laws.



Course condition


The course is a mix of dirt path (more than 50%), grass and a very small section of asphalt at the bike path crossings. At the moment, even the natural (dirt) paths are solid because of dry weather conditions. November tends to make the course more wet, so spikes may and can be worn (best short ones), but not necessary.



Awards


Every runner will receive a tournament patch.
Medals will be awarded to all runners finishing in 1st, 2nd and 3rd place in their age group.
Ribbons will be awarded to all runners finishing in 4th till 10th position in their age group.
Team trophies will be awarded to those schools finishing in 1st place in their age group.
