FAQ

Luggage

One small bag only. We transport from start to finish. All distances. 

10 Km: Please not that that the truck leaves at 11. It means that if your start is 11:30 and want to send your bag to finish, be sure to deliver it before it leaves. 

We do not take responsibility for any damages. Be sure to pack your belongings in a waterproof bag in case of rain. 

When do you close the registration for 2022?

If not sold out, it is open till race day and closing 9am

However, Bibs are going to print on May 16th. It means if you want to change distance or other, you must do so before May 16th in order to have your name shown on your bib.

If you register after May 16th, you will get a bib without your name on it. On May 16th we print only a few extras, so if you´re considering to sign up you should do so asap :)

 

I didn't receive email confirmation and bib information

Did you check your spambox? Emails have been sent out to all participants. If you havent´t got it and need to know your bib, check the participants list.Remember to choose "navn/name" in the menu

Confirmation email: When you have fulfilled your registration it normally takes a few minutes before you receive confirmation by email. Remember to check spambox.

If you don´t receive any emails at all, you probarly typed wrong address. Also, those who use Hotmail seem to have an issue with not receiving, maybe due to strict spamfilter?

If you typed wrong email address, contact us so we can correct it for you.

Where can I purchase the race shirt?

We have a net store @ ecorun.no - but shipment within Norway only. 
However, 2022 race shirt will be for sale during bib distribution, if in stock. :)

 

I ordered the race shirt for the cancelled 2020-event...

Pick up at bib distribution. Last chance is during the bib distribution for the 2022 race. We do not send it by mail.

It is NOT possible to move my registration to 2023. Why?

Sorry, not possible. We offered this during the pandemic. We are now back to normal, meaning binding registration.

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.
