Start permit and bib number: You will receive your start permit via email a few days before the race. The bib number can be collected at the race center on race day, between 08:30-10:00. We recommend that you collect your bib and safety pins well in advance of the start.

Important! Bring your start permit to collect your bib.

Shower & changing & toilets: Toilet facilities are available in the area. We recommend that you come dressed for the race. There are limited opportunities for changing and showering.

Food & drink: A simple café is available on site.

Bag storage: We provide free storage for your bag and valuables during the race. The storage area is staffed, but we still want to draw your attention that you leave your belongings at your own risk.

Warm-up: A group warm-up is available at the start led by instructors from STC.

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

Timing: In Varvetmilen, timing is done with net time. We use an automatic timing system where all runners have a chip attached to their bib. 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 applies "friend seeding". This means that all runners help each other to provide the best conditions for the entire field to have a smooth journey from start to finish. You decide where in the starting field you should start. If you want to take it a little easier, stand a bit further back; if you belong to the faster part of the starting field, position yourself towards the front.

Track: Varvetmilen Täby is measured by a certified federation track measurer according to the rules established by Swedish Athletics. A link to the course will be available soon.

After the race: All runners who complete the race receive a medal and fluids are available.

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).

  • Which starting group you'll be placed in: Seeding rules

    In Göteborgsvarvet, participants start in a large number of starting groups. The criteria determining which starting group a runner ends up in are described in the seeding rules.

    With a result in the Varvetmilen, you are automatically seeded to a better starting group in the Göteborgsvarvet 2024 than if you are unseeded, no additional registration is required. You can already see which preliminary starting group a certain result qualifies you for.

    If you have multiple seeding-qualifying results, it is always the best result you will be seeded with.
