To register a team :
Each runner must make a separate entry and at the time thereof, define if he/she wants to enroll in a team, the name of his team in the field reserved for this purpose. The names of the same team, with different runners , will all be spelled the same way, to be grouped in the same team. (IMPORTANT : The name of the team must start by the number of team members followed by the sign “-“. For example, for the team ‘Lions’ with four runners, the name will be : 4-Lions. This rule allows us to check consistency within the teams. During the draw, all members of a team will receive the same serial number. So when the results of the draw is issued, all team members will either get a place or will not. A team can be made up of up to 10 runners. Runners applying for different races can be in the same team.
