The current plan: from 900 to or any number of participants this autumn
The Swedish Government and the Pubilc Health Agency of Sweden have resolved to lift the restrictions from the 1st of July to allow for 900 individuals to take part in outdoor recreation events together. The restrictions will only apply to the start- and finish areas.
In September, just in time for the TCS Lidingöloppet Week, the plan is to allow for any number of participants to take part in recreational outdoor events.

Examples of adaptations during this year's race events
The TCS Lidingöloppet Weekend (TCS Lidingöloppshelgen) will this year be organised as The TCS Lidingöloppet Week (TCS Lidingöloppsveckan) in order to spread the race events over multiple days.
The number of participants in each race evet will be limited.
The wave starts will be smaller, and the starts will be on the same large fields as in a normal year.
Barriers and safe queuing systems will be installed, along with signs and event hosts which will guarantee safe distances in all event areas.
The traditional restaurant tents will be replaced by smaller food stations like cafés and food trucks for outdoor serving.
All volunteer workers will be trained in hygiene routines and be equipped with protective equipment.
Hand sanitizers, face masks, and other personal protective equipment will be available on the entire event area.
TCS Lidingöloppet is also available as virtual races
