    Anywhere! Find the course of your choice. Do you want a fast track, challenging track, do you have a favorite place to run? You can even run around your house, in your backyard, on a treadmill – literally anywhere.

    But – if you want to compete for one of the spots on the podium there are some rules you need to follow:

  • Can I run with a pacer or in a group?

    Due to Covid-19 we are not able to open registrations for running groups. If the situation changes, we will consider opening up the entries. Follow us on Facebook and Instagram to keep informed.

  • Do I get a bib number?

    Yes! We will e-mail you your own personal race number. You will receive a PDF you can print and also a cool image for sharing on your social media account.

  • What time do I start?

    It’s up to you what time you start. Only rule is that you have to start after 00:01 on the 14th of May and finish before 23:59 on the 17th of May 2021.

  • How does the timing work?

    Start a session and run your chosen distance.
    Your smart phone, smart watch, fitness watch or activity tracker is your personal “virtual timing chip”.

    NOTE! You have to run the correct amount of kilometres
    When you reach the total amount of kilometers you have chosen to run you stop the session – and this is important! You must run the total amount of kilometres for your timing to be true. Example; if you are running the Half Marathon, you have to run 21.1 kilometers. If you run too short our system will calculate an average time based on the total time and distance of your race and you will not get your real time. (If you run too far you’ll be OK – it cuts the race at the correct amount of kilometres).

    Pause? 
    Please also note, that even though your watch or phone deducts pauses you may have taken during your session, our system does not. It measures the total time of your race from from start to finish.

    Finish and registration
    When you finish your race you store it on your device. To register you log on to “My Page” and press “my time”. Here you can simply link to your Strava-account. We also support session file import for GPX, TCX and FIT formats – so if you use other platforms or compatible devices nothing is holding you back from joining the party!

    Do you not want to register your time?
    You can finish the race, and registert without time. Just press the “Finished-button” on my page. Your name will be on the result list, but your timing will not.

    Want to race for one of the spots on the podium? 
    There are some rules  you must follow: 

  • Which devices can I use?
