St Olavsloppet, established in 1988, is the biggest long-distance relay race in the Nordic region. It runs between Östersund in Sweden and Trondheim in Norway. The event goes on for four days and the total distance is 337 km.
In 2020, due to the Corona pandemic, the race is arranged as a virtual race during week 26 (June 22nd to 27th).
How it works
You can participate in a team or run individually. You can choose to run one, two, three or four days. The participants run the corresponding lengths of the legs as in the physical race. You can find the length of all 51 legs here.
You can run any of the legs wherever you are, as long as the length of the leg is the same as in the physical race. Every participant takes the time of their leg/s. If you are part of a team, you inform your team leader about your time/times. In the end, the team leader reports all leg times to the organizer.
It is not important to complete the legs in a specific order. Our only demand is that they are ran during Monday to Saturday during week 26.
