We were frankly taken by surprise by the relatively huge interest in Trans Scania 2016. For a race that has had as little as three finishers (in 2012), having 20 registered runners and a few more on a waiting list in October is a pretty big deal.
We’re convinced Trans Scania should never become a big race, it’s just not the way it was meant to be. However, we’ve taken a close look at our organizational bottlenecks and figured we can raise the maximum number of participants to 25.
This simply means we can let people from the waiting list into the race, new registrations will most likely go directly to the waiting list.
Wow, in just six days we got enough applications to fill the race. We don’t have a full set of complete registrations yet, some are still pending payment, but the race is most likely full. We’ll keep accepting registrations, but these will be placed on a queue waiting for spots to open up in the race.
We’ve now opened the registration for Trans Scania 2016! We urge all runners to read the Race info page carefully, as there are a couple of news for this year. In short:
- There will be a limit of 20 participants. Once 20 runners are registered, new registrations will be placed in a waiting list.
- Unsupported runners will be highlighted in the results list. We define unsupported as only relying on the official drop bag and existing stores and restaurants along the course for support.
- We’ll only allow one drop bag per runner, ant it must be small and light enough for one person to carry without struggling.
As always, please contact us if you have any questions. See you at the start!
