How do I know for sure that I am registered?

You should receive a confirmation email; don’t forget to check your spam where it might end up in case you can’t find the email. If you're not certain you have received the confirmation email, log into your Active account and check all the events you've entered with us. If you can't see your entries, email us at info@lcwbelgium.com.

Can I register for someone else?

You are NOT permitted to register for another athlete. For safety & security reasons you must register yourself and bring photo identification so that we can guarantee we are giving the right event number & timing chip to the correct athlete. This avoids mix ups with announcements, emergency contact information on the reverse of the race number, finisherpix, and timing.

When can I expect the event pack?

Absolutely everything you need to know about the Long Course Weekend will be communicated a few weeks before the event via e-mail, with a full race pack available to download up to 4 weeks prior to the event. This will include event timings, registration details and important information. It is important to carefully read through this information as details may be different to those on the website. We recommend using the online Event Pack as a guide, which is in "real time" and updated right up to the event start. An email will also be sent to the address you registered with, notifying you of any final details and possible amendments that arise.

When will I receive my timingchip and BIB number?

These must be collected at the time of registration upon showing photo ID. Disclaimers and waivers will need to be signed on your Active account or when you enter and will be held digitally on our system. There will be an option to sign your waiver/disclaimer physically at registration.

Can I use a personal listening device?

It is very important that you remain aware of your surroundings for the duration of the race as some parts of the course are on open roads and others cross public pathways. Therefore we do not allow participants to use their audio device during the races.

Do I have to participate all three days?

Long Course Weekend offers a series of races over the course of 3 days. You can enter for just 1 discipline, multiple disciplines or the entire Long Course Weekend. Totally up to you!
