CLUB VERIFICATION WILL NOW BE DONE ONLY FROM 25 MARCH
(The same day that Substitutions close and two days after Westcoast marathon)
We realise that most runners would not yet have purchased or renewed their 2019 licences thanks to the ASA extension rendering 2018 club licences valid until 17 February 2019. We will, therefore, open the club verification window on 25 March, 6 pm for a week until 31 March, midnight, 2019.
We have also taken into consideration that many runners are trying to
qualify or improve their seeding in the period 18 – 24 March.
Accordingly, as you would be aware of by now, the final date for all OMTOM
2019 substitutions; qualifier, seeding and medical info; and any other
required profile updates, was moved to 25 March 2019, 5pm. The postponement of our verification window is also in line with this, with due consideration for runners wishing to qualify or improve their times at these races:
23 March – Langebaan Country Estate Weskus Marathon
So note that I will ONLY start with the verification process after
substitutions have closed on Monday 25 March.

just run faster than others. I never met a fake runner.”
