SWD gebruik die IPICO tydhoustelsel. Slegs IPICO-chips “praat” met hierdie stelsel. Atlete sonder hierdie chips sal by die afhaal van hul wedloopnommers so 'n chip gratis ontvang. Al hierdie chips word geleen en by die eindpunt afgehaal.
SWD uses the IPICO timing system. Only IPICO chips “talk” to this system. Athletes without the correct chips will get one free with their race numbers, but ALL these chips have to be given back once you cross the finishing line.
Seeing that this is a prestige and joyful event, we have live entertainment on the Friday, 10 Oct 2014, from late afternoon until late in the marquise tent. The talented Michael Lindt will entertain us with his music & singing.
A huge variety of music will be playing on Saturday, 11 Oct from early in the morning the whole day long.
