Questions and anwsers about TEC

1-      List of expenses for TEC: (accommodation, flights – any information you have)

–          Accomodation, we recomend Scandic Täby, we can arrange transfer between hotel to start and when you’ve finished the race.

2–      Are the race located near airports?

TEC is locadet 30 minutes south of Arlanda airport if you go by car.

Flights & From Arlanda to TEC’s Hotel

–          From where you are you will travel to Arlanda, ARN, Stockholm, Sweden that is located a little bit north of Stockholm City. Please check with your travel agency for flight prices.

–          From Arlanda you can travel by bus or taxi.

  • Taxi should cost 450-500SEK, ask for a fixed price. (look for Taxi 020 or Taxi Kurir)
  • By bus you will have to buy a card from “Pressbyrån or 7 Eleven”, ask at the info desk at Arlanda!

Then take the commuter train from Arlanda to Upplands Väsby, then change to bus 684 Täby Centrum and get off at the station Täbyvägen, change to bus 610 Danderyds Sjukhus and get off at Roslags Näsby Trafikplats, walk about 500m.

Price for a 72 hour ticket is 230SEK + ARN ticket 75SEK =305SEK

If you travel with other persons you should take a taxi because of the price, otherwise do as you please but a taxi takes half the time.

3-      How much time I need free to complete?

The TEC race have a time limit of 30 hours. You will start at 10.00 AM at Saturday the 12th of April and we will close the finish at 4.00 PM at Sunday the 13th.

4–      How much time recommended to have in every location?

 

You should come to Täby Park Hotel at Friday, me and my collegue will be at the hotel to welcome you to TEC and you can also buy a dinner with other runners (you’ll get info in the TECmail). Eat and listen to an inspiring speech by two ultra runners that ran 3000 km (Turkey – Sweden) 2013.

We have had people that stay for some days before the race and also some days after the race.

One guy went directly to the airport after the race (and shower).  It depends if you want to go into Stockholm and look around.

If you go by bus it will take about 30 minutes to go into Stockholm City Center and if you want to walk around maby it’s better to do before the race :).

5-      Important dates?

TEC registration opens in september every year and we reopen the registration in february for last minute registrations. (See website for last updates)

6-      Are required qualification?

No required qualification!

7-      How much time it will take to get to race start?

The race area where you will put your extra gear and get food/drinks etc is 200 meters from the Hotel, about 2 minutes walk.

11-  How much time I need to plan for traveling?

Accomandation I will recommend that you book it when you book a flight. TEC registration is open until we reach our limit with runners, it can be weeks or a couple of months, we have experienced both.

Best regards
