  During many races you might need some rest to perform your maximum during the race. Usually this happens outdoor - lovely.
Bornholm, Denmark, 2009
  Meeting Wolfgang Schwerk, who has run two transcontinental races and four 3100-milers was the highlight. I ran only for 72 hours ...

  A indoor race quite close to my hometown - sucess. It was a fine race but I fell asleep several times. It was in a 250 m lobby of an arena.
Aarhus, Denmark, 2009
  My kind of race, small, simple and rough. This is a 50 km trail race in the province where I live. About 25 participants and one aid station.

  A crazy idea actually turned in to reality - to arrange a 100 mile-race! Six participants was more than I hoped for.
Ystad, Sverige, 2006
  When darkness set in the adventure began as the route pretty much disappeared. Running in the night along the coast was magic.

  I came pretty much last but to run 100 miles is enough of a challenge for me. The distance is very challenging.

  Each competitor got a medal, t-shirt, map, energy gel, coffe, coke, water, food, soup, candy and a very long night as well as toes like me.

  The biggest ultramarathon in Sweden is actually not very big at all, but very nice and comfy with 50 km run from A to B.

  The views were stunning through the whole race, although it rained six days out of seven; mountains and villages, forrests and hills.
