You can measure your ski poles outside the Trade Fair in Mora and by the number bib tents at the starts in Sälen and Oxberg.

Time penalty for littering in the Vasaloppet Arena

It is allowed to throw garbage in three different ways during Vasaloppet’s Winter Week, you will be caught by throwing debris otherwise you may be penalized with a time penalty of 15 minutes. You must throw litter:

  • In the bins at the Vasaloppet checkpoints.
  • In the marked littering zones between each Vasaloppet checkpoint.
  • Where you as a participant know that a team leader or associate will pick up what you throw.

A competitor will automatically be disqualified if he/she participates in the competition under false pretences such as starting under false name/with false timing chip or practice any unsportsmanlike behaviour. The Race Director and/or Race Secretary have authority to disqualify, penalize or ban from participation if evidence of rule infraction is submitted after the race is completed and after the Jury has finished their work.

Getting to the start

Start Eldris

Participants and leaders or parents can only get to the Eldris start via bus, which leaves from the Mora Trade Fair area at 07:00–08:30. Return trips by bus will run continuously as the busses fill up, starting at 08.45 with the last departure at 10:00.

Start Hökberg

Participants and leaders or parents can drive to the start. There is also a bus to the Hökberg start departing from the Mora Trade Fair area at 08:30. A return trip for audience members will depart from Hökberg at 10:30.

These busses are free and do not need to be booked. Since our bus capacity and parking area is limited we prefer to see a maximum of one leader or parent accompanying each participant. Our recommendation is to be out in very good time.
