COVID-19 FAQ

In view of the current COVID-19 situation, it is virtually impossible to organise the 2021 Breakout Run in a safe and responsible way, with the atmosphere and experience that the participants are used to from us. ‘’Public Health is a top priority’’, says organiser Luuk van der Doelen. ‘’We would not want to give participants, who have already registered, false hope in these uncertain times and instead prefer to offer them clarity as soon as possible. The decision has been a tough one.’’

The purchased bib numbers for the edition on Saturday 6 and Sunday 7 June 2020 will remain valid for the next edition in 2022. Participants do not have to do anything else. If you do not want or are unable to take part on the new date, the registration fee will not be refunded. Please refer to our terms & conditions.

We offer all individually registered participants the opportunity to transfer their registration to someone else without any further payment. Do you already know someone who wants to take over your starting permit? Please follow the instructions below.

  • Log into your account. You have received the link and password in your confirmation e-mail.
  • Click on ‘transfer registration’.
  • Fill out the name and e-mail address of the new applicant and click on ‘continue’.
  • The new applicant will receive an e-mail to complete the transfer.
  • The new applicant has to fill out their personal details and can also add products to his or her registration. Please note! If you have purchased any products already, please let the new applicant know so he/she won’t order it twice.
  • When the new applicant has filled out all the details, the transfer is completed.
  • When you’re deferring your registration to another person, it is your responsibility to collect your money.

If this does not offer you a solution, please contact and include your confirmation number.

We are very busy at the moment looking for a new date. As soon as the new date is known, we will share it with you. Keep an eye on your email inbox, our website and social media channels for the latest updates.

Additional products purchased at the time of registration or additionally ordered will remain for the rescheduled event in 2022. If you defer your starting permit, the products will remain for the new owners. So pay attention to this when transferring your starting permit.

Team registrations will remain in your account for the 2022 edition. It is not possible to cancel teams. If any team members can no longer participate/do not want to participate any more, the team captain can remove these team members from the team and invite a new team member.

No, currently not. If we reopen the 2022 event, we will announce this through our official channels.
