This is how to register and report your time for your virtual Lidingöloppet. This applies for both participation @Hemma or @Lidingö.
Before your race:
Make sure you have a fully charged phone/watch with you and that you have downloaded the latest version of the app you are measuring the time/course with. Lidingöloppet recommends that you use the training app STRAVA, but it is also possible to use another training app with GPS functionality (e.g. Runkeeper, etc) and of course any other watch training app.
Make sure that you prepare your app/watch for timekeeping and that it has "found" the GPS reception where you are (give yourself enough time for this!).
When the "start shot" goes, start your timing via the app/clock you are using.
At the finish line:
Stop the time when you cross the finish line or reach the "correct" distance.
Make sure to save the race in your app/watch. Feel free to double-check that the app/watch has registered your run before you leave the finish area.
When to report your time:
Go to My Pages via the link you received in the start-info. Here you can choose three different ways to report your time, see picture below
1. By submitting a GPX file from any training app
How this works differs a bit depending on which watch/app you have. For more information on how to download a GPX file see the manufacturer's webpage. Once you’ve downloaded your GPX file, to your computer or phone, you can then upload it to our interface. Note, the file you select must have the .gpx extension.
2. By selecting one of the workouts you have registered in the training app Strava.
You can either connect your training app/watch directly to Strava, which means that all your activities, including your competition performance, will appear automatically in STRAVA and will be selectable there. (Here you will find a good information page on how to pair the watch with STRAVA). Alternatively, you can use STRAVA as your timing app on your phone. You must first link your Lidingöloppet account to your Strava account, which you do by clicking on the "Connect with Strava" button. Then you will be able to choose which of your Strava activities you want to send in as your "competition entry".
3. By registering your time manually (not recommended)
If your timekeeping has not worked, there is an opportunity to enter your time manually.
If your result is approved, i.e. has the right distance for your registered distance and, if on Lidingö, follows the correct route, you will be immediately notified that your result is approved in the interface via an email. There may be ambiguity in this.
