Trailrunning and the Vasalopps-track is now completed!

Trailrunning and completing the last part of the famous Vasaloppsleden. The track goes from Sälen to Mora (located in Dalarna, Sweden) and has a distance of 90 km. You can do this track skiing, bicycling and/or running/hiking. The most popular style is skiing and the competition is always held the first sunday in march. The competition brings about 15 000 people from all over the world and the starting tickets get sold out very fast. Different kind of competitions are held during this week and they estimate an impressive number of 60 000 people to participate. So for us it was very convenient to do the track by our selfs.

Half and half the track

About one month ago I did half the track together with one of my class mates. I had never ran that long distance before so 48 km was a good start. Today I did the rest of the track (which ended up in 44 km) and together with my twin-sister Erika. The first part, from Sälen to Evertsberg is more difficult because of more narrow paths, bigger differenceses in altitude (more up hill) and many narrow foot-bridges. From Evertsberg to Mora is like an Europe-road but in the forrest and most of the time the track goes slightly downhill.

Do the track all in once or stay in huts along the way
Along the track you’ll find huts and if you want to stay over night you just pay a small fee and bring your own sleeping bag and mattress. Our father is very interested in skiing and one day we’ll hopefully do the track together. I guess it will be skiing or hiking.

Over and out!

Some stop for energy refill is necessary. Here we have bars, nuts, raisin, sandwiches and coffee. And water of course.

WOW! Jack Sparrow in the middle of the forrest. But he looks kind of sad…

The paths are wide and good.

We did it! 44,5 km of trail running. Proud and a bit sore in our bodies. But our minds are shining and we’re feeling very happy.
