Unfortunately not. We use Mylaps rental chips. These are disposable chips that are paid for by participants via a fixed fee. You'll find the details in the registration information.

I’m not a member of the Dutch Triathlon Union (NTB). Can I still participate?
You can sign up for the recreational race. All you need to participate is a day license. The organisation will arrange the license for you. The union does charge a fee that will be forwarded to the participant.

Can I sign up for both the eighth and OD?
According to our regulations, you can only sign up for 1 distance a day.

Is there a draw for the Eighth and OD distance?
No, there won’t be a draw. Starting tickets are issued on a first-come, first-served basis. If a race is overbooked, registrations are assigned to a waiting list on a first-come, first-served basis.
