The start and finish area will still be in the city centre, in Piata Sfatului, between Biserica Neagra (the Black Church) and Casa Sfatului (the Council House).
The participants in the children’s race will be children aged 4 to 14, who will run between 500m and 1km, depending on the age group they fit in.
There is no participation fee. Registration is open online until May 15th, 2017, and at the place of the competition, to the extent that places are available.
All the children’s races will take place on Saturday, May 20th. The race schedule will be made available in the Schedule section.
The races will take place according to the following age groups and distances, and will have different start times:
The participants in the children’s races, children aged 4 to 14, must be accompanied by a parent upon registration and collection of the race number. The parent must fill in and sign the registration statement, thereby declaring on oath that the child is medically apt to compete, in the presence of a representative of the organiser and that of a witness.
The registration and validation of children’s entries can also be done by their physical education teacher or by a school representative, based on a table containing the children’s personal data and signed by the school administration, which thereby expresses its agreement as to the children’s participation in the races.
Children will run on their own, unaccompanied by parents.
The rankings for the children’s races are made based on order of arrival. Separate rankings will be made for each age and gender group.
Places 1, 2 and 3 in each race and group will receive an award. The award ceremony will take place in the event area, near the start/finish point. The exact time for each group will be posted in the Schedule section in the days to come.
