• What do I do if I didn’t get an entry?

    The waiting list

    All of you who didn’t get an entry on the 4th of November have been placed in the waiting list. That means that the entries that aren’t paid will be assigned to the waiting list from the top. If you get an entry this way you will receive an e-mail that explains how you go ahead.

    The Swedish Classic Registration

    Swedish Classic participants who have completed a 2016 ski event in Öppet Spår, Vasaloppet or Engelbrektsloppet and who do not have a starting entry for Vätternrundan 2016 are welcome to register. The registration is made at My Pages. Read more about it here!

    The transfer period

    After the Swedish Classic Registration is finished we open our transfer period. That means that during that period (and that period only) it is allowed to buy and sell an entry in Vätternrundan. The deal is completed at My Pages and the sold entry is registered on the buyer and thereby becomes valid. Read more about it here!

  • Can I change start time so I can ride with an already registered friend?
