Info before the RUNmarö races

It is our ambition that RUNmarö should be a familiar, pleasant and professionally organized race. As part of this, we have collected most of the questions we have received in recent years below. If you can't find what you are looking for, send an email to us via the contact form and we will respond as soon as we can.

 

We also want to highlight that the organization behind the race consists of a committed family who do this in their spare time because we enjoy it. Therefore some things will not work like big races and some info you may simply find out when you get out to the island.  

The arena for the day

Everything around the RUNmarö race takes place at Svängen, which is about a 10-minute walk from Strysvik.  Svängen is Runmarö's natural hub and social place that we have come to love. Fredrik, Madde and the gang have created a wonderful oasis for us to meet over great food, a glass of wine or an ice cream on a sunny day. Therefore, with our small large event, we want to contribute as much as we can to Svängen. Feel free to buy lunch, an ice cream, something to drink and stay for dinner at Svängen under RUNmarö and everyone will be happy.  

Registration opens 1/5

Registration and payment takes place in advance via the website and opens May 1st at 09.00. There is a total of 120 spots / race to buy in advance. Lunken and Halvmarathon have historically been fully booked and we release 30 extra spots/ race in connection with the race bib distribution the night before. These spots can only be bought on site and are mainly intended for those on the island, but you can of course come out and grab a spot if you want.  

What does the race cost?

Our ambition is that the races will not cost more than a couple of ice creams and we are therefore incredibly grateful to our sponsors who help us every year. Mini-Lunken costs only SEK 40. Lunken and the Halvmarathon cost SEK 85 and SEK 235 respectively. We donate 20% of the surplus to a good cause.  

Can I as a company sponsor the race?

Of course we will be very happy if local companies want to sponsor the race. We are not looking for money, but rather something that enhances the experience for the participants and creates an even more wonderful event. It can be sponsoring the medals, the prize table or something else that is appreciated by runners. Just contact nicholas.roman@challengize.com if you want to hear more.  

How are the courses marked?

The courses will be marked with fixed signs, so-called enduro arrows and also 1km markings along the Half Marathon. The signs for Lunken and Halvmarathon are up all year round, so feel free to come out and test run if you want.  

Energy during the races

During Mini-Lunken and Lunken 5.7km there are no planned energy stations except at the start and finish. Every year, all the lovely Runmarö residents help us with at least 4-5 energy stations along the Half Marathon course. At Gatan the energy is at a max, at Nore they usualy serve pickles at one of the most beatiful energy stations, in Söderby the children cheer like never before and in Solberga you can get both water, banana and a shower of water if Bazooka-Elliot is at home. The energy stations have shared glasses / mugs, so the sensitive person should bring their own mug / bottle. Make sure to thank everyone at the energy stations a little extra, we are so grateful for their support. 

Race bibs the day before

You can collect your race bib the day before on Saturday between 18-20 at Svängen or on race day and then preferably as early as possible. If you are on the island, we would really appreciate if you could come to Svängen the evening before and pick up your bibs so the queues will be as short as possible on race day. One person can pick up several bibs, so send a friend rather than wait until Sunday.  

Race bibs on race day 

On the race day, bibs can be picked up at Svängen, which is about 300m from Styrsvik. We prioritize Mini-Lunken so that all small runners have time to get their bibs and warm up before their start. At the start of Mini-Lunken at 11.00, a short break will be made in the bib distribution to cheer on all the little heroes.

 

To collect a bib, you must be registered to a race. We can not accept registrations on site at the tables, so you need to fix it before you approach the table. You register and pay via the website as long as there are places left, it is fine to do it on your mobile.

 

In your Race PM, the start number will be listed and you can also see it under the Start List .  

Bibs collected after the race

Just like previous years, we want to ask everyone to submit their bib after the race so we can wash them and use them again, which benefits both the environment and the economy around the race.  

Late registration and admin

To the extent we have time, we will help with admin such as changing name, class or similar. This is done at our tent at Svängen. But if we do not have time, we will have to solve it afterwards.  

Race Meeting at 12.40

We will hold a short race meeting in Swedish at Svängen at 12.40 to go through the courses and some other important information.
