Consideration on the course
It should be enjoyable for everyone to make their way towards Mora, and it’s therefore important to show consideration towards your fellow participants. Take an extra look when you change tracks and leave the left-hand track free for overtaking. This way, everyone can go at their own pace all the way to the finish. The basic rule is: Keep to the right, overtake on the left!
For your security there are restrictions at some checkpoints; time limits after which you cannot pass. The checkpoint must be left 10 minutes after the time limit for arrival has expired. If you arrive too late at a checkpoint you must abandon the race. Bus transport to the finish in Mora will then be arranged.
If you reach the checkpoints within the time limits, you will be able to complete the race.
In extreme weather conditions the race directors have the right to change the time limits.
Service at our checkpoints
Along the Vasaloppet course there are seven official checkpoints. Drink and energy in various forms is served at all checkpoints. Gluten free Vasaloppet buns are available in limited numbers. Specifics on what is served can be found on the detailed race map.
At the checkpoints we offer grip wax services as well as minor equipment repairs. There are toilets and medical services at all checkpoints, as well as at the start and finish.
Abandoning the race
If you break off your race, you must seek out medical services at the nearest checkpoint. They will take your data chip, report your decision and arrange transport to the finish in Mora. Safety and medical services have the right to take a participant out of the race if they suspect injury or illness.
