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.

The start will be on the address Ringvägen 42. Depends on what starting group you have chosen the procedure is a little big different. If you shall start in starting group 1A to 3A you goes to your starting group at announced time. For the other starting we will have a “Gate” that announce when you shall go to the gate.
