Rosa Bandet-loppet@Hemma is for you who wish to run Rosa Bandet-loppet at home. You can choose if you want to run the race on your favourite course or choose a brand-new course as an extra challenge. The only requirement is that the course must cover the distance you register for.
Join and color the trails pink during the Cancer Awareness Month in October and collect more funds for cancer research! For each entry fee, 100 SEK is allocated to Cancerfonden (the Swedish Cancer Society).
You can race whenever you want between the 1 and 31 of October 2023.
When you run Rosa Bandet-loppet@Hemma you are completely free to choose when and where to run your race anytime between the 1th–31th of October. You choose a course that suits you. The only requirement is that it must include the distance that corresponds to the distance to which you registered for. For example, Rosa Bandet-loppet 10, is a 10 km course. You can run a single 10km loop or a course with several laps, e.g. 2 x 5km.
You will receive the number bib in the start-info that is sent out before the race. You can print out the number bib yourself and wear it when you run your race. This is not a requirement for running, but the more people who use the number bib, the more wonderful you’ll feel during the race!
Tag us on social media with your number bib! By wearing the number bib you can also identify others who participate in the same race as you.
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 two different ways to report your time, see picture below1. By submitting a GPX file from any training appHow 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".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.
Once you have uploaded your results to My Pages (you will find the link in your e-mail Startbevis) you will see your time and your current finish position. The results will be updated continuously throughout the race period.
Results marked with a yellow triangle in the result list are waiting for review to be fully approved.
