REASON LIMITS
 Why this limit? Because the course and the cafetaria
cannot cope with more people.  When runners are
hindering each other on the rather narrow paths, our
beloved LPM will cause more frustration than happiness.
And we all want to enjoy the race, don’t we! So, it’s quality we want, not quantitiy.

                                           and feeling an organiser                          grabbing you and
