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:
Wave starts are used in Rosa Bandet-loppet (The Pink Ribbon Race), TCS Lidingöloppet 30 and TCS Lidingöloppet 15. Participants are grouped either automatically, based on results in TCS Lidingöloppet in the two previous years, or based on an estimated running time from other races. If a race entry is made with no requests on waves, the entrant will automatically be placed in the last wave start.
The race result you wish to use as a qualification time shall not be older than 3 years. The last date to qualify for a wave start is the 6th of September.
Results from the following races are valid, besides the race events during TCS Lidingöloppet:
- Vårmilen (5 and 10K)
- Blodomloppet Stockholm (10K)
- Stockholm Marathon
- Stockholm Halvmarathon (not the same year as Lidingöloppet, since it takes place just weeks before the event).
If you live abroad, you can use results from races in your country (10K or longer).
How to do submit a qualification time for TCS Lidingöloppet:
State the result you wish to use in your entry, or send it to email@example.com.
- Name of the race
- 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.
Please complete your entry with qualifying results no later than the 25th of August. 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.
