Want to keep track of family members, friends and competitors as they struggle towards the finish line? There are several ways to follow specific participants. With our services you can receive continuous updates and time reports, and monitor as many people as you like.
Automatic monitoring through app or SMS
In the app Vasaloppet Sommar you can find complete start lists for each event, and purchase monitoring of however many participants you would like. For 10 SEK you get up to date push notifications with intermediary times from each Vasaloppet checkpoint as the participant passes. You will also get an estimated time for when the participant is expected to arrive at the next checkpoint, and at the finish. This time is based on average speed but does not take weather conditions or other possible factors into account. You can find participants by searching their start number or name. If you purchase monitoring of several participants you can also compare times.
If you do not have a smartphone, or if you will be in a location with poor mobile data coverage (for example, along the Vasaloppet track), we instead recommend our SMS-service. Unlike the app it requires no data traffic.
How to start SMS-monitoring
Send a text message with the code of the race in question and the start number of the participant you wish to monitor. You will receive continuous updates and time reports during the race as the participant goes past each checkpoint. The SMS-service is available in Sweden, Norway and Finland. All information will be delivered in Swedish. Prices for the different races are listed below.

Tips for those following participants by car
Many relatives and friends want to follow participants along the track. At the checkpoints we ask that you be attentive and follow the signs and directions from our parking attendants. There is often a lot of traffic on the roads during our races so remember to be out in good time. A good rule of thumb is to add an hour to your travel plan. Consider carpooling!
Between Sälen and Mora there are seven official Vasaloppet checkpoints. The checkpoints at Smågan and Eldris may not be visited by those following along. Exceptions are made for participants in VasaStafetten who are making exchanges at these checkpoints.
Vasaloppet’s recommendations for those following participants by car
Cykelvasan 90 and Cykelvasan Öppet Spår
Remember that bike races are faster. We recommend visiting a maximum of two checkpoints along the track if you want to reach Mora in time to see the finish
Cykelvasan 45, Cykelvasan 30 and Ungdomscykelvasan
During these shorter cycling races it is difficult to follow participants.
