Seeding

If you want to be in a better start group, you can use other results for seeding. Here are the rules for seeding to TCS Lidingöloppet.

Seeding is made in The Pink Ribbon Race, TCS Lidingöloppet 30 and TCS Lidingöloppet 15. Either automatically, based on results from the two previous years, or by an estimated running time based on results from other competitions. If an entry is made with no seeding requests, the entrant is automatically placed in the last starting group. 

The result you want to use shall not be older than 2 years. Last date for seeding is August 25th.

Results from the following races are valid, as well as the different races in Lidingöloppet:

Lidingöloppet on Tour
Blodomloppet Stockholm (10 km)
- GöteborgsVarvet 
- Stockholm Marathon
- Stockholm Halvmarathon (not the same year as Lidingöloppet, since it's too close in time)

If you live abroad, you can use results from races in your country (10 km or longer).

How to do it
State the result you wish to use in your entry, or send it to info@lidingoloppet.se.
Information required:
- Name of the race
- Year 
- Distance
- Your final result

Seeding information that is not stated correctly, will not be taken into consideration. This means automatic placing in the last starting group. Runners with results from Lidingöloppet On Tour are prioritized.

Automatic seeding is made based on results from the two previous TCS Lidingöloppet, unless other results are presented. 
Please note that the automatic seeding only applies on the same distances. If you are now entering the 30 km race, and you results are from TCS Lidingöloppet 15 km, you have to state this in your entry. 
If your result from two years ago is better than last years, please state that you wish to use the older result.

You can complete your entry with seeding results no later than August 25. Seedning is made subject to availability. If a starting group is full, you will be placed in the closest group possible. Races accepted for seeding are only the ones stated above.

Seeding with the Racefox app
Since 2017 you can be seeded with the app Racefox TCS Lidingöloppet. You run the last 10 km of the 30 k track, starting from Grönsta Gärde. Instructions are in the app. You can run your own seedning race whenever you want, but no later than August 25th. 

Run with a friend
Do you want to run together with someone? To be in the same start group, state "wish to run with xxx xxx” (that persons' name and date of birth) in your entry. The seeding will be made subject to availability, so enter as soon as possible.
