Common questions and answers are gathered here. Whether you have participated several times before or if it’s your first time, we want you to have a pleasant experience of our event. Please read our advice for your participation and some of the most common questions below.
Start waves are divided in non-elite competition and elite competition. No previous results or qualifications are required for other start waves than the early start waves (seeding apply) and you may choose a starting time that suits you. Vacant start waves are shown in the entry. Please note that no changes of start waves are made once the start numbers are set – this is for security reasons!
Seeding is done to Vansbrosimningen start wave 1-6, Vansbro Halvsim start wave 1-2 and Vansbro Tjejsim start wave 1-2. This means that the entry system automatically places you in a start wave if you have previous results that correspond to the seeding times. If you do not have a result (three years back in time), you may enter other qualifications to be seeded. Please enter what race you have participated in and the results.
