FAQ

Can I still register on the day itself?

Post-registration is not possible. This applies to all distances from our event. You can only register online. Look for more information on the relevant distances page under “registration”.

 

Do you use chips for time registration?

With the Midwinter Marathon the chip is integrated in the starting number. The use of this chip is mandatory, other chips cannot be used. You can take the start number (with chip) home afterwards. The starting number with chip can only be used once and is therefore not suitable for other events.

 

 

How do I get my starting number?

If you live abroad, you can collect your starting number on the Sunday of the Midwinter Marathon in Schouwburg and the Orpheus Congress Center on presentation of the confirmation e-mail. Even people living in the Netherlands who have not yet paid can collect their starting number there after they have paid the registration fee (cash, there is no PIN device).

 

How do I get to Orpheus theatre and congress center on Sundays?

Click here for all information about accessibility on Sundays.

Is there again a certificate available this year with my result?

Yes. As soon as the results are available on the website on Sunday evening, it is also possible to download and print a personal certificate.

Can I park at the start?

No. On Sundays, there is a parking ban in the area around Schouwburg and the Orpheus Congress Center and Loolaan (towing-away arrangement!) In addition, a number of roads have been closed. The police are also fining wrong-parkers in order to prevent nuisance for residents in surrounding streets. The Orpheus parking garage is also not available on Sundays.

Participants from outside Apeldoorn are therefore urgently requested to use the transferia and shuttle buses as much as possible or to use public transport.

Can I check if my registration went well?

On the “Register” page there is a link (“Control link”) to a form with which you can check whether you are registered correctly.

When using the Transfer Form (only possible in January), the new information will NOT be visible via the Control Link.

Can I still adjust the distance I specified when registering?

If you have registered for the Acht van Apeldoorn, Mini-Marathon or Asselronde you can change distance, but only if it concerns a change to a shorter distance. Changing to a longer distance is not possible. If you still want to walk a longer distance, you have to register again. You can redo the starting number for the original distance to another runner. After the registration has been closed, this change is no longer possible.

This can be done by clicking on the link to the change form that is present in the confirmation e-mail that you receive after entering the registration. Not all data can be changed, the distance you want to walk is e.g. cannot be changed using this form. If you want to change something that cannot be changed via this form, send an email to contact@midwintermarathon.nl

After the registration is closed, the data is processed to produce the starting numbers and it is no longer possible to change your distance. The organization reserves the right, in certain cases, to refuse a rebooking if the distance to be rebooked is already full.
If you want to walk a shorter distance after the registration has closed, you are allowed to do so, but you will not receive a new starting number. Then start at the shorter distance with the starting number you have. The starting box is maintained. The results are not automatically adjusted.

Can I get myself removed from the results list?

Participating in a part of the Midwinter Marathon means that you agree with the publication of name, result, photo and video on the internet. Removal from the results is therefore not possible in principle. Only if there is a demonstrably very serious reason can you process a request for removal from the result by us.

Can I have my end time engraved in the medal?

After the Asselronde, Mini-Marathon and Acht van Apeldoorn it is possible to have your medal engraved with your end time in Orpheus (stand Winterman Sports). If you want to make use of this, check the box with the engraving medal on the registration form. With pre-registration the costs are € 7. On the day of the event you pay € 8.50 for engraving.

Can I cancel my registration?

It is not possible to cancel your registration. You do not have to unsubscribe. Since we do not have your starting number (you will receive it at the specified address), we cannot re-issue this starting number.

If you cannot participate, you can redo your starting number. E.g. via www.startbewijshulp.nl. Then check if there is already a Transfer form on our website to transfer the starting number to another name. This Transfer Form will be published on our website around the time the start numbers are sent (end of January). If the transfer form is filled in correctly, the details of the new runner will be stated in the result.

Refund of the registration fee is in principle not possible. The 14-day cooling-off period – which applies to the online purchase of goods – is also not applicable here. This statutory cooling-off period does not apply to a leisure activity agreed on a specific date.

If you want to transfer your starting number to another runner / runner before the end of the registration period, this is also possible by passing on the details of the new runner / runner via contact@midwintermarathon.nl to the organization.

However, the organization does not regulate the payment of the registration fee of the new to the old participant.

Until when can registration be made?

Registration closes on January 5, 2020 at 11:59 PM *). If you register before this time and your payment is received by us, participant living in the Netherland will receive starting number and further information by mail. Participants living abroad can pick up the starting number and further information in Orpheus on Sunday on presentation of the confirmation letter. 

We do not use a waiting list for runners who were late in registering. So it makes no sense to send us an email about this.

*) If a distance has reached the maximum number of registrations, the registration for that distance will be closed. That can therefore be earlier than the aforementioned date. For more information, see the relevant distance page under “registration”.

Where can I find information about the course?

On all distance pages you will find a “tab” Route map, Altitude profile and Course video. There you will find the information about the course.

When will the results be available?

The results of all distances can be found on our website on Sunday evening.

Which sports drink is provided?

Our partner SportvoedingWebshop.com provides the sports drink service.

At the refreshment stations along the way, sports drink (lemon flavor) is distributed in cups.

After the finish you will come to a sports drink street consisting of 15 tables with taps where runners can fill their cups themselves. In addition to the lemon flavor, other flavors are also available here.

Are the changing rooms within walking distance?

Most changing rooms are a short walk from the start / finish. The shuttle bus between Transferium West and Orpheus (start / finish) stops both on the way there.

 

Are there options for spending the night?

In the municipality of Apeldoorn and are the necessary hotels, holiday parks and a Stayokay. Every year we make advantageous agreements with a number of hotels. Look HERE for more information about these hotel packages.

 

Are there refreshments on the way?

On Sunday (Asselronde, Mini-Marathon, Acht van Apeldoorn) there are refresh stations en route. Click on the relevant distance and look at “refresh points” for more information.

Are there starting sections at all distances? And how is the classification determined?

Starting courses are only used on Sundays. The letter of the starting box in which you must start is stated on your starting number.

The starting courses are in principle determined on the basis of the specified, estimated, end time. Invite competition runners always enter the front competition section (section W). This is supplemented by runners who can prove that they can meet the criteria for placement in starting area W. If you want to qualify as a fast runner for a place in start section W, you must indicate this when registering. This can be done by referring to a result in a competition of the same length or longer, which has been running in the last 2 years. These criteria are different for men and women and for each distance. Self-registered times, included in, for example, loopijden.nl, do not count as proof. The specified result must make clear that you can realize the following end times:

Assel round 25km (Men): 1 hour and 38 minutes.
Assel round 25km (Women): 1 hour and 56 minutes.
Mini-Marathon 10EM (Men): 1 hour and 5 minutes.
Mini-Marathon 10EM (Women): 1 hour and 13 minutes.
Eight van Apeldoorn 8km (Men): 31 minutes.
Eight van Apeldoorn 8km (Women): 34 minutes.

Whether one is allowed to start in Start Section W therefore has nothing to do with having an Athletics Union license or with the age category in which one starts. The rest of the runners are divided over the other starting sections based on the specified end time.

If you have already registered and you want to adjust your estimated time afterwards, send an email to contact@midwintermarathon.nl. After the registration period has expired, however, nothing can be changed.

Can I transfer the starting number to someone else?

If, for whatever reason, you cannot participate in one of the distances of the Midwinter Marathon, there is a possibility to transfer the starting number to another runner. The way in which this must be done differs depending on the time at which it must be arranged.

Before the end of the registration period it is possible to transfer the registration via the Change form. The link to this change form is present in the confirmation email that you received immediately after registration. If you have transferred the registration in this way to another runner / runner, send the link to the change form or the confirmation e-mail where the link is, to the new runner / runner. He can then make any changes himself.

The aforementioned method is no longer possible after the registration has been closed. Then use the following method:

A few days after the registration closes, a link to a Transfer form appears on the “Register” page. The moment you know the definitive starting number, the number that is printed on the starting ticket, you can use this form. It is NOT usable for participants in the Crown Domain Het Loo Marathon. If you want to transfer the starting ticket for these distances, mail to contact@midwintermarathon.nl with the details of the new runner. In any case Name, Date of Birth, M / F, Distance and also the e-mail address.

Can I start in another start box?

It is only permitted to start in another start section if the new start section is further back. So you have starting section B, but you want to start with a friend in starting section C, then you can. But starting box B to A is therefore not allowed.

Are there any pacers that we can follow?

Runners from athletics club AV’34 will act as pacers during the Acht van Apeldoorn, the Mini-Marathon, the Asselronde and the Marathon trail.

For the Acht van Apeldoorn (8 km) the target times are: 48, 56, 1.04 minutes.
For the Mini Marathon (10 English miles) the target times are: 1.10, 1.20 and 1.30.
The target times for the Assel round (25 km) are: 1.55, 2.05, 2.15 and 2.25.

The target times for the Marathon Trail (42 km) are: 3.30, 4.00, 4.30, 5.00 and 5.30.

How are the pacers recognizable?

They are recognizable by a yellow shirt with the word PACER on it. A white balloon hangs above their heads, the target time is on the balloon. Each pacer has 2 starting numbers, 1 on the chest and 1 on the back. The start time will also appear on the start number. All pacers have the same color start number, orange. The name ‘pacer’ appears next to the end time.

How can I order a Midwinter Marathon running shirt?

Every year we publish a special running shirt for the Midwinter Marathon. If you fill in the registration form for your distance, you can order the running shirt directly there.

We only have a limited number of shirts available so order on time. And because the production and shipping of a running shirt takes time, we only have a limited number of shirts to order.

The running shirt is not available in children’s sizes.
