Warm-up: A group warm-up session will be provided at the start led by instructors from STC.

Water stations: Water stations are available at 5 km and at the finish line.

Timing: Timing is done with net time. We use an automatic timing system where all runners have a chip attached to their bib number. The official time is the net time from the start line to the finish line, so you don't need to jostle for a good position at the start.

Seeding/Starting group: Varvetmilen uses "friend seeding." This means that all runners help each other to give the best conditions for the entire field to have a smooth journey from start to finish. You decide for yourself where in the starting field you should start. If you want to take it easy, stand a bit further back; if you belong to the faster part of the starting field, position yourself towards the front.

Track: Varvetmilen Göteborg is measured by a certified federal track measurer according to the rules established by Swedish Athletics. The organizer may decide to direct runners to the sidewalk so that traffic can be released according to plan (this applies to runners who have a pace of about 9:00 min/km).

After the race: All finishers receive a medal and a finisher t-shirt. Fluids are also available at the finish line.

Prizes: Prizes for places 1-3 in the women's and men's classes, award ceremony around 11:45 AM.

Results: You can view your results directly after the race here. If you have a registration for Göteborgsvarvet 2024, you will automatically be seeded with your result from Varvetmilen (or another better seeding qualifying result).
