Seeding

If you want to start in the right group in the wave start, you can seed yourself. Here are the rules that apply to seeding for the TCS Lidingöloppet and the Rosa Bandet-loppet (The Pink Ribbon Race).

Seeding

Automatic seeding is based on the results of the last three years in the TCS Lidingöloppet, Rosa Bandet-loppet (The Pink Ribbon Race) and @Hemma. If the registration is made without previous TCS Lidingöloppet results and without specifying another seeding result that is not older than three years, the runner is automatically placed in an unseeded starting group.

For seeding for the TCS Lidingö race 30 km and 15 km, seeding of at least 10 km applies.
For seeding for the Rosa Bandet-loppet (The Pink Ribbon Race) 10 km, seeding of at least 5 km applies.

Place yourself in another group

If you wish to be placed in a better group in the wave start during TCS Lidingöloppet, you can submit previous race results as qualifiers. The following are the rules for TCS Lidingöloppet's time qualifiers:

Seeding takes place according to space to the right starting group. Update your seeding results free of charge via My Pages until the race weekend. Reseeding during the race weekend subject to availability at a cost of SEK 300.

How to do submit a qualification time for TCS Lidingöloppet:

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

Qualification information that has not been stated correctly will not be taken into consideration. This means automatic placement in the last start wave. Runners with results from Lidingöloppet on Tour Powered By Klövern are prioritized.

Automatic qualification is made based on results from the two most recent TCS Lidingöloppet races, unless other results are presented. Please note that the automatic seeding only applies on the same distances. If you are entering TCS Lidingöloppet 30, and your qualifying time is from TCS Lidingöloppet 15, you have to state this in your entry. 

If your result from two years ago is better than last year's event, please state that you wish to use your older result.

The division into wave starts is made subject to availability. If a wave is full, you will be placed in the closest group possible. Races accepted for qualifying times are only the ones stated above.
