GENERAL INFORMATION ABOUT THE RACE

What is Semesterhalvmaran Utan Gränser?

Semesterhalvmaran Utan Gränser is a virtual race where you as a participant get to choose when and where you want to run your 21 km. The race is a virtual form of the physical race Semesterhalvmaran 21km that LK Gränslöst normally organizes every summer on the countryside outside of Örebro, Sweden.

A race in aid of the climate

Semesterhalvmaran Utan Gränser is, in itself, a climate smart race since you can choose when and where you want to run. Besides, every runner will contribute financially to stopping climate change through our cooperation with GoClimate (more information below).

When can I join the race?

Semesterhalvmaran Utan Gränser is open for participation during a period of two weeks; July 18th up until August 2nd. At any time during these weeks you can choose to participate.

Is Semesterhalvmaran Utan Gränser a race for me?

Semesterhalvmaran Utan Gränser is in several ways a race lacking borders (Utan Gränser meaning Without Borders). LK Gränslöst is hoping to inspire you to a nice run regardless prior experience! Maybe you miss competing now that almost all physical races are cancelled due to the Covid-19 pandemic? Maybe you wouldn’t care to participate in a physical race but is curious to see if a virtual option could suit you? Maybe you simply want to support the fight of climate change? We hope that you would like to help LK Gränslöst in our aim to share the joy of running and to spread awareness of the climate changes!

Who are GoClimate?

GoClimate is a Swedish company based in Stockholm that invests in different climate projects that contribute to decreasing emissions of carbon dioxide into the atmosphere. The company has only one goal and it is to stop the climate change. Their economy is fully transparent. GoClimate is passionate about educating others on the climate crisis and on how we all can contribute to stopping it. One of the founders of GoClimate has created this video which we think explains the climate crisis and its complexity in a good way. Solely by gaining more knowledge on the climate crisis we can make concious choises in our every day lives that contribute to saving our planet!

Save 1 ton of carbon dioxide for every 10 km you run

When you sign up for Semesterhalvmaran Utan Gränser at least 50% of the profit will go to GoClimate which in their turn will invest in projects that aim to lessen the amount of carbon dioxide in the atmosphere. GoClimate promises that with these money they will be able to decrease the amount of carbon dioxide in the atmosphere with at least 1 ton* for every 10 km that are run by someone. Therefore, if you run 21 km you will contribute to a decrease of 2,1 tons!

* 1 ton of carbon dioxide equals the emissions from travelling 4000 km by car, producing and using 18 iPhone 7’s or the production of 30 pair of jeans’ (source GoClimate). In Sweden the average individual consumes approximately 9 ton carbon dioxide equivalent per year (source Naturvårdsverket).
