After going through the new qualification process with ITRA, we can now finally confirm that Trans Scania finishers will be rewarded with four qualification points for UTMB - Ultra-Trail du Mont-Blanc®. The Race Info page has been updated.
The Registration for Trans Scania 2015 is now open!
The race is now over, and as usual we are in awe of the runners and their incredible achievements! In addition to the runners, we’d like to thank all supporters, friends, family and strangers who have shown the them (and the organizers) such generosity and good spirit. We’re already looking forward to next years race, that will be held on August 14-16. See you then!
The Results page have been updated with the final results.
We’ve put together a few track files in Gramin Track format (.tcx) for parts of the race outside marked trails and one for the full race. These files can be used in navigation apps or handheld navigators. Please see the Race info page for more information.
During the race, all runners will carry a tracking device. There will be a live map, where you can follow the progress of the race. The accuracy of the positioning cannot be guaranteed, don’t rely on the map for safety, or anything else important. Please use the link below to find the live map.
Our main event of the year, Lejonbragden, is behind us, and it’s full speed ahead for the Trans Scania preparations. We already have a handful registered runners, which is of course a great motivation. Over the next few days we’ll publish the course map and other essential details. Please contact us with any questions you might have.
Despite the fact that not all details are in place yet, the registration has now been opened due to popular demand. The start of the race will be in Bjärred and the finish in Lund, just like the last few years. Transportation from Lund to the start can be arranged for those who need it.
We’ve decided to keep the same registration fee as last year, 800 SEK, but a high quality running t-shirt is now included in the price.
We’re in the middle of preparing the Trans Scania 2014 registration. The registration itself is pretty straight forward, but we want to add a lot more info about the race before we open it. We expect to be ready in a couple of weeks, in the meantime, don’t hesitate to contact us if you have any questions!
Starting 2014, Trans Scania will be organized by the non-profit association Löparföreningen Lejonbragden. We’re a friendly group of people with a passion for well organized races. The association was originally started to bring the first 100km race in Sweden, Lejonbragden, back to life. Pär Sikö, the current Trans Scania organizer, is a founding member of our association, and when we heard he wanted to pass the stewardship of Trans Scania on, we immediately signed up.
Our ambition is to change Trans Scania as little as possible, but to provide more and better information before, during and after the race. Having successfully organized Lejonbragden twice and helped out with Trans Scania the last couple of years, we’re confident we’re up for the task.
More information about the race, like maps, will be added to the site in the coming months.
Please leave a comment or contact us if you have any questions. We’re looking forward to making sure Trans Scania lives on for many years to come.
