How does the training redemption program work?

When you attend the running session, you’ll get a stamp. Once you have accumulated enough stamps, you’ll enjoy a free slot for any race on Spacebib. The required number of stamps depends on the race fee. You can redeem for a race slot for around 25 - 30 stamps.

With a total of 150 sessions to attend, it doesn’t take long to accumulate enough stamps to earn free race slots. You can also earn more stamps by bringing new friends. One extra stamp will be awarded for every new friend that you bring, and there is no limit to how many friends you can bring. This is not a lucky draw; if you train hard, you'll be able to earn what you deserve.
