Information from First Hotel Kokoloko

We are partnering up with First Hotel Kokoloko, and we will be spending a lot of time at the hotel during the day, and they want you to feel welcome!

On Race Day, the breakfast will be open 6.30AM-1030AM, and it’s open for all racers (and crew, family, etc). You don’t have to book in advance, and it’s SEK 120 per person.

The restaurant at the hotel is open for lunch as well, and there’s a Loko-burger, Caesar-salad and falafel-bowl in the menu. Perfect for family and friends waiting for you.

Coffee is available to buy all day in the restaurant/lobby.

Information about the race

Buses for the 52k race leaves from Hotel Kokoloko at 7.30AM. You will receive your BIB before getting on the bus, so please arrive ahead of time. If you’re not going by bus, your BIB will be at the start for pickup.

You can leave a bag at the hotel if you want.

We would like to ask you to not bring more than a small bag to the start. There’s a lot of bags for the volunteers to transport to the finish when there’s more than 200 runners. Leave the rest in a bag at the hotel, for the stuff you need after the finish line.

We also would like to ask you to keep the drop bag as small as possible. A small plastic bag, or box, and the volunteers work will be much easier. You leave the bag at the start, and it will be brought back to the finish after the race.

The start is at 9.00AM, at Hallshuk.

The finish line is at Hotel Kokoloko.

There will be more information the week before the race, but if you have any questions, ask them in the Facebook-group or to Niclas at
