Racing Republic Notification concerning Age Limit

 

We have decided to put an age limit for the different events of the Royal Raid. We have been asked numerous times to make exceptions and we have refused. It is true under age participants have managed to trick the system and run only because our screening system failed then but we became aware of this and it will not happen again. 

 

We have made this decision for the sake of our children NOT against them and this is to allow them to continue to grow well with reduced risks of problems later on in life. It is beside the point to know if our children are CAPABLE of doing such distances because many of them are.

 

The point is really to know if it is good for them. The body of our children and then of our adolescents are still growing until between 18 and 23 years for Boys and 16 to 20 years for Girls. When we talk about growing, it involves among other things; Bones, Muscle, Tendons, Ligaments and the Heart.
