Each Saturday a CCXC run is organised along three different loop tracks in several waves at a specific venue. Normally the first wave would be the shortest track (typically 2 km) with the second wave being a combined start of the medium (4 km) and long track (6 km) shortly after the first wave had finished. To keep social distance however the two wave start is changed to a open start within a 2 hour window starting at 12:30.
Each track is clearly marked and where needed volunteers are posting along the track to give directions.
The Take and Go (TAG)-start makes use of the pre-programmed shoe tag that is recycled at the end of each race.
On the basis of the race coupon a shoe-tag is issued at the registration desk. The shoe tag is used to measure your race time when you cross the purple mats both at start and finish. Cameras are used as backup to check start and finish times.
