It is not necessary for the guide to register, but if the guide wants to have a registered time, T-shirt, medal, etc. on an equal footing with the other participants of the race, it is necessary for the guide to register as well.

    Special equipment, including running strollers, is only allowed after prior agreement with the organisers. Everyone running with a running stroller must show consideration and at all times respect the instructions of the officials, including any instructions regarding placement in the field.

  • Companies, clubs and other groups wanting to enter and possibly pay for all entries at once have the possibility of getting a company profile.

  • The race is started by the starting shot, after which the seeded elite and then the other participants cross the starting line.

    The start takes about 25 minutes. To ensure the best possible start and race experience for all participants, please make sure to start in the correct start group.


  • For safety reasons, it is important that you are correctly registered as a participant and do not run with someone else’s race bib.

    In this way, we can be sure that the information registered on your bib is your own information, and we have the possibility to contact your relatives if necessary.

  • Running with a baby jogger should be avoided due to the distance, risk of extreme weather conditions, loud noises or other conditions that may be too intense for small children.

    All runners with a baby jogger must show the greatest possible consideration and always respect the instructions of the officials, including any instructions regarding their position in the field.

  • The participant’s official time is a net time where the time starts when the runner crosses the start line. There is a cut off time at 6 hours net for the entire distance and 3 hours net at the half marathon mark.

    This is because we only have roads available for a certain period. That being said, the finish area is the last thing we take down, and we would like everyone to cross the finish line, so keep running until you hear otherwise.

  • It is not prohibited to run with headphones, but we recommend that you refrain from doing so. You should be able to hear officials if they need to contact you and the other runners.
