In this unique format men and women will be competing directly against each other. When the gun goes off, only the women get underway, with the men starting a few minutes later. Whoever gets to the finish line first will be the winner of both the race and of a cash prize.

The time difference between the women’s and the men’s start for 2018 will be 16’15”, which is what the time difference between the male and female winners of the 2016 Rio Olympic Games was, plus an additional 5 minutes.
