Check-in to the start takes place next to the changeover areas begins about 30 mins before the start. Check-in must be completed no less than 15 minutes before the start.

Runners are responsible for ensuring their SI cards are cleared before check-in.

At check-in SI cards are linked to each runner, leg and team number using a barcode on the race number. All runners must therefore wear a race number. After check-in, runners follow the marked route to the starting point. Runners whose SI cards have not been linked to a team number will be excluded from the competition.

Runners may not leave the starting area after being admitted to the starting area. Runners must be in position by the marked number corresponding to their team’s start number five (5) minutes before the start.


Runners are responsible for ensuring their SI cards are cleared before check-in.

At check-in SI cards are linked to each runner, leg and team number using a barcode on the race number. All runners must therefore wear a race number. After admission, runners follow the marked path to the changeover area. Runners whose SI cards have not been linked to a team number will be excluded from the competition.

Runners are encouraged to check in well in advance, especially youth runners on legs 2 and 3 where a lot of runners will be arriving in a short space of time.

Runners may not leave the changeover area after being admitted to the changeover area.


Terrain type: Woodland, mainly coniferous trees of varying ages, with generally good visibility. The area is intersected by a few minor roads. Numerous paths near the arena, consisting partly of motorcycle and other vehicle tracks.

Height variation: Varied terrain, from relatively level to moderately hilly. Some detailed high sections.

Runnability: Good to excellent runnability. Areas where logging has been done have normally good runnability.

A few motorcycle tracks have appeared after the map was printed.

Adjustment of maps:
For Women’s and 10MILA relays there will be an adjustment of the maps posted in the start lanes and changeover lanes.


10MILA 2013 takes place on the military training grounds of the Swedish Life Guards regiment. The Swedish Armed Forces always do their utmost to ensure that no hazardous ammunition is left. However, the training grounds are extensive and hazardous items are occasionally left behind. It is therefore important that runners take extra caution and never touch any unidentified object.
If you find anything that could be ammunition or anything else you are unsure of – DO NOT TOUCH IT! Contact the competition office as soon as you finish the race.

It is completely forbidden to fire flares or let off fireworks at or near the arena. The arena is located directly under flight paths to Arlanda Airport and can be seen from the air traffic control tower.

Exceptions from military signs
The signs warning for military activities in the area can be ignored. There is no military activity in the competition area during the 10MILA event in or nearby the competition area.

Fire Hazard – No Fires Allowed 
For safety reasons fires are not allowed within the Arena and the camping/tent areas. Fire extinguishers are placed on several locations.



Control points are marked by orange/white flags and a reflective baton for night controls.

Each control point has at least two SI units. The unit’s code number is marked in black on a white background. The height of the units is approximately 60 cm.

Some control points are manned by officials and/or visited by media during the competition. Fixed and mobile TV teams will be operating in the competition area.


The SportIdent punching system is used.

An SI card may only be used once in the relays.

However, an SI card used in a relay may be also be used once on an entry-on-the-day course and in 10MILA-korten.

The complete set of rented SI cards must be returned for each team at the competition office when cards are collected. Participants who do not return their SI card will be charged SEK 580.

SI cards of types 5, 6, 8, 9, 10 and 11 are allowed.


When punching the SI card, it is the responsibility of each runner to ensure that the control unit confirms a correct punch with light and sound signals.

Technical information of how registration works:

When the card is placed in the slot of the electronic punching unit (the base unit), the unit first reads the card number and saves the number to its memory. The control code and the time are then transferred to the card’s memory and the base unit’s memory.

In the next step the unit reads the SI card’s memory and compares it to its own log. This is done several times and if the information that is transferred back and forth is identical each time, the confirmation signal is given in the form of a light signal and a sound signal. If the SI card is removed before the confirmation signals have been given, there is a risk that the control code and time will not have been properly recorded in the card’s memory, resulting in a failure to register the control.


Roped-off areas may not be entered. Such areas should be regarded as competition terrain and breaching this rule will lead to the disqualification of the team. This applies to runners, team leaders and spectators.

Drinks in the form of water and sports drink are available on the longer courses and at the finish. Drink’s stations are marked on the competition map.


Incoming runners must run into the changeover lane marked with the leg number. Runners must punch their cards at the finish line. Failure to record punching will result in disqualification.

The following lanes are used for the different legs for the respective relay:

Youth relay

Women’s relay

10MILA relay

The map must be handed to an official and the map for the next leg is taken from the barrier where the changeover to the next runner takes place. Runners are responsible for ensuring that the correct map is taken at the changeover. Missing maps can be obtained from the tent at the end of the changeover barrier. In the Youth relay, maps for both the second and third leg on the map barrier are packed in a single plastic envelope.

After changeover, incoming runners must go for read-off of their SI cards (check-out).


Changeover if the team has two runners on both leg 2 and leg 3:

1. The runner on leg 1 comes to the changeover. There are two maps in a common bag for the team, which are handed to runner 2A and 2B, which then both have started.

2. The first runner returning from leg 2 comes to the changeover. Both maps in the bag are handed over, to runner 3A and 3B, which then both have started.

3. The first runner returning from leg 3 comes to the changeover. The map is handed over to runner 4.

The runner in the team who is first to the changeover on leg 2 and 3 will give the team its official result on that leg. An incorrect control punching for the first runner will thus lead to disqualification of the team, even though the second runner has punched correctly.


Incoming runners run into the changeover lane to the left that is marked ”MÅL/FINISH”. Runners of the final leg are not permitted to change lane. If a runner chooses the wrong lane, the runner must return to the entrance of the lanes and select the correct lane.

Where necessary, finishing positions shall be determined by the judge at the finish line. Runners then carry out punching at the finish station, a few meters beyond the finish line.

After around 20 teams have finished, teams shall carry out punching in the finish station by the finish line. Maps are submitted to officials. Runners then go for read-off of their SI cards (check-out).


Reports mainly of hooved animals (elk, deer, etc.) should be made to the animal sightings station at the competition desk.


Teams that are registered as “disallowed” will be informed of this at check-out and will be directed to the Red Exit for review. Disallowed teams will be listed on the results board as soon as possible after changeover. The team may, however, continue the race outside of the competition. The team will be detained by officials at the map board until at least 30 minutes has passed after the leading team. This is to ensure that the team cannot influence the outcome of the competition.

Team leaders wishing to appeal against disallowance must address the competition desk no more than 60 minutes after completing the end of the leg in question.


Relay Restart Time Comment
Youth Relay Saturday kl 14.45
