Pick up your startkit

Before Midnattsloppet you pick up your startkit that includes a t-shirt, timing chip and your wristband, in that Stadium Sportstore you chose when you registred.  You shall wear the t-shirt during the because we have that instead of a bib. More information of when and where you can pick up the startkit will be updated here as soon as possible.  

Timing Chip

To get a result in the race it´s important that you attache the timing chip in your shoelace. It doesn´t matter if you put it on your right or left foot. Don´t put the timing chip at your wrist or put it in your pocket because then the signal will not reach the timing chip. The time keeping will start when you pass the carpet on the starting line so there is no need to stress.


When you pick up your start package you will also have a wristband with your starting group printed on. You put this around your wrist and show it for the crew when you enter to your starting group. On the bracelet you type in your name, day of birt and ICE-number.
