We hope to see all participants here at the dinner held at Pensionat Lövängen/Frejs Magasin, to chill on the After Run followed by a race dinner with price ceremony & a (possible) inspirational speaker.

More details about the race dinner will be posted here & of course also be included in the Race-PM to be sent out about 10 daye prior to race date.


PRICES & CEREMONY

Medals will be handed out to all particpants upon finish.

Price ceremony to all winners/distance will be held at the race dinner Saturday evening.

We'll also have a lottery where participants have a chance to win prizes from our lovely sponsors/partners on their start bib numbers.


MANDATORY EQUIPMENT

The following is mandatory for all participants:

  • Head lamp + extra battery (or extra head lamp)
  • > 1L water/sports drink in vest/backpack (about 15-17 km between aid stations)
  • Own mug/cup
  • Personal medication

Head lamp MUST be carried from start to finish. Own mug/cup must be used at aid stations (no disposable mugs will be available). Personal medication must be packed in vest/backpack.


Reflex and/or reflex vest, extra shoes & socks, anti-chafing & extra clothes are recommended equipments. The January weather in Gotland can vary heavily, simply dress accordingly.


OWN CUP & LITTERING

Certainly it is unthinkable to leave any litter in the nature, you bring your garbage with you until you find a bin to throw it away. In our ambition to save the environment, we'll not have any disposable mugs at the aid stations. This means all particpants must have their own mug/cup to enjoy the refreshments at the aid stations.

NOTE! Thanks to our partners Salomon all participants will be given a Salomon Soft Cup in the goodie bag = problem solved!


TIMING

We'll have individual timing thru the app Race.se, where participants & spectators can follow the progress from a number of checkpoints during the race. To ensure you as a participant get timed at a checkpoint it is very important that the volunteers can see your start bib - please carry this visible on the front of your body to make this process easiers.


RESULTS

During the race particpants & spectators can follow the results "live" as participants pass the various checkpoints. Live results can be found on Race.se HÄR.

If time allows we'll also do our best to update results on Facebook, at least post photos/videos on a regular basis. After the race we'll post a complete result list on both Facebook & here on the website, certainly also on Race.se.


TOILETS, DRESSING ROOMS, SHOWER

In general, use the natures resources. Toilets are close to the start in Ljugarn ("Dubble" & "Enkle") which is also an aid station, as well as at Katthammarsvik, Herrvik & tempory toilets are at Sjaustre & Folhammars camping. 

No dressing rooms, change where you stay at.

No showers, shower where you stay at.

Regardless where you staty in LJugarn you'll just be a few minutes walking distance from start/finish.


AID STATIONS

NOTE! About 15-17 km between the aid stations. Plan your water/energy accordingly.

More info to come, but rest assured you'll be satisfied.


PACERS

Pacers are NOT allowed given the current Covid-19 restrictions.
