7000 racers are registered for UltraVasan and VasaStafetten that will take place on Saturday August 23rd 2014.  Below we inform you how to track the runners. Our newest addition is GPS tracking!

Track runners via GPS
For the first time in the VasaloppsArena’s history, some runners can be tracked by a GPS tracking system. This is similar to the system used in orienteering competitions. There are 15 men and 5 women in UltraVasan 90, along with 10 men and 5 women in UltraVasan 45 that will be equipped with a GPS sending device.  The same applies to 10 men’s teams, 5 ladies’ teams and 5 mixed teams in VasaStafetten. The End patrol will also be equipped with a GPS. Below are links to follow the event by GPS tracking.

The same traffic rule applies to racers and their service vehicles. Make sure you allow yourself plenty of time and park fast and smoothly by adhering to the traffic signs, parking attendants and your fellow drivers.
