Questions regarding Virtual Race May 29th

The virtual race is not the same as the regular race event.

The virtual race has separate registration from the regular event.

The virtual race takes place on May 29 and May 30th- as a little compensation for the ordinary race, which has been moved to August 7. 

In the virtual race, you run wherever you want in the world, and whenever you want within a given period of time. The route you choose has to match (as much as possible) the elevation profile as the Ecotrail Oslo distances.

Here you can read more about the virtual race, and where to sign up and how to get on the results lists.

I asked to be moved to 2022, can I be moved back to 2021?

It's not possible. There are several reasons for this. One is that 870 participants have been moved manually to 2022. It is an administrative job to move one by one. The main reason is that there are not enough bibs left for 2021 to be moved back. There are new registrations daily and the race is filling up. If you want to participate in August, you´ll have to make a new registration. 

Hvor laster jeg ned gpx og hvor finner jeg løypekartet?

I menyen til venstre, eller i "hamburgermenyen" på mobilversjonen, kan du velge distanse. På hver distanseside ligger det et kart som du kan zoome deg inn på. Og link til GPX-fil som du kan laste ned.

Merk at det kan forekomme små endringer i løypa. I en stor by bygges det ustanselig, det medfører løypeendringer her og der. Kartet vi har lagt ut er både etter sporing med klokker og tegnet inn. Så ikke bruk gpx-filene som veiviser under løpet da det altså kan forekomme endringer. Vi merker jo uansett løypa godt på selve løpsdagen.  

I desktopversjonen kan du klikke på den lille linken som ligger rett over kartet på høyre side, "Ecotrail80km2019". 

Når du har klikket på linken "Ecotrail80km2019" rett over kartet, kommer du videre til Alltrails og ser dette bilde (desktopversjon). Under kartet kan du dra musa over høydeprofilgrafen for å se kilometerpunkter osv. 

Du kan også klikke på de hvite boblene for flere valgmuligheter. F.eks "overlays" for å få kilometerpunkter synlig på selve kartet. 

Mobilversjon:

Når du har klikket på kartet kommer dette opp. Vil du har flere alternativer for kartet, klikker du på den nederste av de to små linkene som ligger rett over kartet. Altså "Ecotrail31km2019".

When is cut off?
If you pass these stations after they are closed, you are still timed. The registration mats are located at all support stations and other places.
The most important thing is that you reach the finish line by 8PM.
Should you have a bad day and arrive after 8PM, you will still get your time registrated - but we must start to rig down the finisher area no later than 8PM.

Will you serve food at the support stations in 2021?

80 km, 50 km and 31 km have support stations. See descriptions where these are along the trail - under "Choose distance".
Freshly baked buns from Baker Hansen and water / sports drinks. We will set up a strict system with infection considerations in mind.
If you have allergies (celiac disease, and / or other), bring your own nutrion with from start. 

21 km, 21 km Walk and 10 km have only drinking stations (water and sports drinks), see descriptions where these are along the trail - under "Choose distance".

This year, there will be no tables with drinks and food in the finisher area, for infection reasons.

You´ll grab your well deserved medal and sent straight on to the luggage area.

In the rest of the area, which is operated by Salt, there will be ordinary serving, as long as the serving restrictions for Oslo have ended in August.

Can we registrate as a team with one invoice?

Yes, go to registratoion and choose "Team entry".

The new person can ask for a password on the participant´s login page. Remembe to check your spam box!
The person who takes over the start number must also remember to change the date of birth to come in the correct class on the results list.

Can I ask for a refund?

Questions about poles and the 21 km Nordic Walk

1:Is it mandatory to walk with poles on the 21 km Nordic Walk?
Absolutely not. 

2: I would like to walk with poles, can I rent or borrow from Ecotrail Oslo?
Sorry, we do not have this service.  You should try poles at a retailer, get the correct height and make sure you buy a pair you feel comfortable walking with. 

Will you mark the trail with flagging tape?

Yes, yellow/red flagging tape all the way +  white paint on the ground at crossings. In addition to this there will be signs at critical points. (New of 2019)

Race Rules

You MUST read the race rules here.  Or click Race rules in the menu.

First aid

We have two ambulances on duty, with Fossum and Lysakerelva as a starting point. And a first aid base in the finisher area.  Otherwise, we remind you that you participate at your own risk, but if an accident should occur, you must call telephone numbers that are stated on the start number. If there are no fractures or life-threatening, you must find your way to the nearest public transport. 

How will my time be registered during the race?

From the moment you step on the start mat and at crossing points/interims. If you are not registered at these, your finish time will be disapproved. During race day your beloved ones can follow you live online. We will publish this link in advance of the race.

Are the distances accurate?

We have tracked them with several devices. It will never be accurate, least not through the forests. The longer the distance, the more variations on participant´s devices...Normally 0,5 up to 3 km in difference for the 80km distance. 

Do I need a medical certificate for Ecotrail Oslo?

No, you don´t need one in Oslo. You participate at your own risk! 

Can my friend pick up my Bib number?

Yes. Before distribution we will send out a text message with your start number attached. if you dont receive this text, log in where you registered and get your start number there. Bring a copy (for example a screenshot on your phone) of your friend´s registration.
