Ferro Mosae Swimrun –  2024

The annual M.S.T.V Ferro Mosae x Bearsports swim run will take place on Wednesday evening May 15 2024. This is the perfect challenge in between all triathlon competitions and training sessions. The swim run is accessible to everyone and therefore it is a suitable opportunity to get acquainted with triathlon. We have a 1/8th swim run for individuals and duos as well as a kids edition.

Location

The M.S.T.V Ferro Mosae Bearsports swim run takes place in and around the Geusseltbad. Swimming will be in the outdoor pool of the Geusseltbad and running will be in the Geusseltpark.

Changing rooms and lockers of the Geusseltbad can be used by participants.

The NTB competition rules apply to the Swim Run. The prices do not include the cost of a day license that will be charged if you do not have an athlete license. More information about the day license can be found on the NTB website.

There is also a possibility to register on the day itself. There will be a € 2.50 fee on top of the regular registration price.

Timekeeping

A chip system is used for the timekeeping of the running section. You will receive the chip together with the start number and attach the chip and start number to your middle with a racing belt. You have to bring such a belt yourself! If you do not have one, there is a possibility to borrow or buy one from the organization, but there is a limited number of belts available. Otherwise, you should attach the start number with safety pins to your trisuit or shirt.
