Collection of race number and timing chip:
The secretariat is situated in the right hand side upper corner of the Ladeuzeplein next to a big tent:
You will receive 1 participation number after showing your 2014 license or a medical certificate (for non-licensees). The secretariat will be open as of 8:00 until the end of the race. If you have paid the fee for a license, but you cannot show your license, you will have to pay a supplement of 15 Euro.
All athletes will be using the disposable chip that will be provided by the organisation for the time registration. This chip is free of charge for Belgian licensees, other athletes will have to pay a supplementary price of 3 € for this chip, this amount is included in the registration fee.
We have 2 transition areas: 1 at the start of the swim, at the Domein "Ter Heide" in Rotselaar, and another one at the Ladeuzeplein.
The bicycle park on the Ladeuzeplein will be open as of 8:00. Athletes will have to leave their running shoes there before leaving for the swim. You are also invited to use a (blue) plastic box, with no markings, and with a dimension of maximum L 45 x W35 x D25. A plastic box that does not fulfill these requirements will not be allowed in the bicycle park. The referees of the federation will be watching this closely !
The transition area at the start of the swim will be open as of 9:00. You will receive at the secretariat a numbered plastic bag. This you will have to use to put your material in (wetsuit, swimming cap, goggles) after the swim. The organization will take care of transporting this to the second transition area at the Ladeuzeplein.
Location of the swim section of the race (Domein Ter Heide, Rotselaar):

After the swim, supporters can use these shuttles to return to the Ladeuzeplein. 2 busses will be leaving at 12:00 and another 2 at 12:20.
The organization cannot be held responsible for any damage caused to the bicycles when being transported by bus.
