  • I’m not happy with my start group. What do I do?

    The seeding is based on our seeding rules. All runners have had the possibility to provide us with results from marathons (faster than 3:50:00h) and half marathons (faster than 1:45:00h) in order to be placed in a better start group. The deadline for this is March 26th 2017. Once you are assigned a start group, it’s not possible to change it.

    Seeding rules

  • Is it possible to change a runner’s name?

    Transference of registration is only allowed for Göteborgsvarvet Half Marathon 2017 and Göteborgsvarvet Marathon 2021.

    Information about name changes
    Until April 30th 2017, it is possible to transfer your registration and starting place in Göteborgsvarvet Half Marathon 2017 to another runner, for a fee of two hundred and fifty (250) SEK paid to us. It is not allowed to transfer your registration to someone else or to let someone else run in your place, without paying the transfer fee and reporting the transfer on our web page. After the date of April 30th 2017 it is not allowed to transfer registrations.

    Please not that the buyer does not take over the seller’s start group. If the transfer is made before March 20th 2017 the buyer is placed in a start group following the ordinary seeding rules. If the transfer is made between March 21st 2017 and April 30th 2017 the buyer will be placed in the start group following the seeding rules, as far as space allows, in other cases in the first following group with a free space.

    How it works:

    1. Sell your starting place
    The seller finds the buyer by themselves. Make sure to take note of the buyer’s name, birth date and e-mail address. This information is needed to proceed with the transfer.

    Thereafter, the seller needs to log in to My Page. A list of registered races is shown. Click the link “Sell your starting place” and follow the instructions.

    2. A registration code is sent to the buyer
    When the seller has provided the needed information (buyer’s name, birth date and e-mail address), a registration code is sent to the buyer. The seller also gets a confirmation e-mail.

    3. The buyer registers for the race
    The buyer logs in to My Page and registers for the race using the provided registration code. The transfer fee of two hundred and fifty (250) SEK is paid at the end. The transfer is now complete and the buyer gets a confirmation e-mail. The seller is no longer registered for the race.

  • Is public transport free during Göteborgsvarvet?

    Please use public transportation – it’s free for registered runners May 18th, 19th and 20th! Your race bib or confirmation of registration can be used as a valid ticket on all public transport within the Gothenburg area, as well as on the local train networks between Alingsås-Gothenburg, Ale-Gothenburg and Kungsbacka-Gothenburg. The closest tram and bus stop to the start and finish area is Marklandsgatan. If you are staying close by, it’s easier to walk or ride a bike.

  • Do I get a confirmation of my registration?
