Next Race - 15 October 2016
2016 ENTRY UPDATE
Loyalty entries opened on 4 June and accounted for 47.5% of available tickets by 11 June when everybody else was afforded the opportunity to enter. More than half (52.5%) of available tickets became available at 06H00 on 11 June. These were eagerly taken up and by 16H00, a mere 10 hours later, we were sold out!! THANK YOU for the support and interest shown. We believe that, and judging from the positive comments received and posted to social media, emails received, etc. you all found the entry process simple and efficient.
Will open on 1 July at 06H00 with a further 200 tickets (100 over each distance) being made available – first come, first served. Cost of R400 per entry (net of on line admin fee) regardless of distance entered. The entry will also include 5 raffle tickets (value R100) in the draw for the painting by Glendine. The frame for this painting is sponsored by Bottega Gallery, Oudtshoorn. The net proceeds of these Charity Entries all goes in support of The Herberg Childrens Home in Robertson. By entering you will not only be joining in a great event but will also be supporting a worthy cause.
2016 Meiringspoort 21 - Substitutions
Will again take place from 17 to 31 August 2016.
Entrants who are unable to take part for whatever reason may offer their entries to those still needing to enter. The normal entry fee plus R100 substitution fee will be required to complete the process online. This charge will be over and above any arrangement that the prospective substitute makes with the current ticket holder. Unfortunately, substituted entries will not be able to order fleecy blankets and / or t-shirts during that process. The organizers of Meiringspoort21 will not be able to identify and link respective parties. More info around the substitution steps and on-line procedures will follow in the next newsletter.
