Time registration 
Time registration is based on a chip on the bib number. The target time requested on the registration form offers the possibility start off in a start box. Runners should display their bib number on the front, it should always be visible.

Stage tribute based on gross time or order of arrival

The order of arrival or gross time determines the official result. For that reason race runners are given the opportunity to start off in the starting boxes. In a contest between individual runners competition between the leaders is very important for the final result. In addition to individual running qualities, running strategy and the outcome of the final sprint is often decisive. In this way it is also clear for the public who runs on top and who eventually wins the race.


The results based on the net time, will not be available on Sunday, 28 April. They will be available on www.run4you.be as of Monday 29 April 2019.

Charity cause
In addition to organising the Damme-Brugge-Damme running contest, the non-profit association Run4You wants to pursue a second goal, i.e. the support of social projects, alternately at home and abroad. This year we have chosen to support the organisation 'The Friends of Senegal'. Those who participate in our running contest also contribute to the development of a kindergarten in the bush of Thiandène, near M'bour. The straw hut has been replaced by a room in brick. Part of the revenues of Damme-Brugge-Damme will be spent to provide the class with furniture, didactic material and toys for the children.

Ecological footprint 
For the fifth edition, Damme-Brugge-Damme wants to limit its ecological footprint: we go for compostable drinking cups, separate waste collection, paper goodiebags, flyers & posters printed on paper with FSC label.
