One participant registered 15 minutes before the start! And packed his bag 10 minutes before the start ... pretty much Business as usual iow ... The weahter was perfect for running, the first five hours. Then it drizzled and poured for pretty much the next 12 hours. Combined with a temperature down to 7 degrees it was a hard slog for most. Too hard for some whose feet gave up being constantly moist. Not your typical summer weather. As always, and off course, more than half of the proceedings were given to people in need - the people of Afghanistan.

The run started in a drizzle and a balmy 3ºC. Krister Eskilsson met up at Landskrona with an extra service station. And in Malmö Henrik Kockum met up with another aid station. Thanks guys. During the night we had low temperatures: down to -7ºC! Mr. Ross Nugent from the U. K. won again. This was his 100:th run of 42.195 km or longer! This is his third win! Two boys shared second and then came the fourth winner of the day: Lupita. Actually it was the first tima a girl ran the race! The weather however did not really affect the results. Shows that a true winter race in cold Sweden (and damp Scania) can be run without problems really. Let's hope for snow and sleet next year ... As always, and off course, more than half of the proceedings were given to people in need - the people of Afghanistan

Peter Leisted Bøgevig Copenhagen Denmark - 14:48:59 (75,8 km)

Great weather! Again. This weekend had the best weather of all the editions so far. The night was almost balmy! Our international guest got lost on the first stretch - he ran 88 km instead of 76 km ... Krister stopped running during the night but came further than last time. Richard put another win to his amazing races (and wins) this year (and other years ...). It did not seem to bother him that he had run 100 miles, he kept on and ran all the way home after hardly stopping at the finish! Mats kept soldiering on and started his training for the race just a few weeks ago ... But he felt slightly off at the start but still finished! Congratulations to all finishers. As always, and off course, more than half of the proceedings were given to people in need - the people of Afghanistan.

Having decided to race the very same week Mats signed up to participate for the fifth time! He shares first place in the statistics with most finishes - an astounding four! I think he will be back. Especially now when he has to defend his title. The race was pretty straightforward ... hard and long as always. And perfect weather - not as always though. As always, and off course, more than half of the proceedings were given to people in need - the people of Afghanistan.

The race started in the best ever weather in the history of the race. And it also finished in sunshine and warm temperature. This edition had only one veteran (celebrating ten (!) participations in gax-events) - last years winner aiming for sub 24! Which he did. And he brought a rookie with him. They surely would had made sub 23 if they had jumped the ship in Helsingør. Instead they rode the boat back to Sweden and then back again ... Well played guys :-) Richard said he would run for 32:09 hours but came in 18 minutes late. And with "run" we mean walking as this was only training for future events. Cut off time for this edition was 36 hours. As always - more than half of the proceedings of the entrance fee were given to the plight of the people of Afghanistan.

Maybe the best weather ever ... at least during the day. The night(s) were cold as a crisp Swedish pre spring day. That means cold! This was the smallest race in relation to participants. Then again - four people attempting the race with (probably) the highest rate of DNF in Sweden is quite a lot of adventurers! 100 miles, cold weather, totally self supported, two "river" crossings. Ouch. All praise to the finishers and even more to those who attempted. As always, and off course, more than half of the proceedings were given to people in need - the people of AfghanistanCut off time for this edition was 36 hours.

So - the fifth edition did not disappoint anyone. It was the usual suspects that lined up and only one first time entrant. Despite the weather being the worst (rained for quite a few times) so far this race resulted in the highest finisher ratio so far - 86 %. And there was a course record. 19:56:59 is not so bad considering this is 100 % self supported and has two crossings involved which adds at least 40 minutes to the total time of the actual running/timing. Cut off time for this edition was 36 hours.

The greatest worry was the weather, which turned out to be quite gorgeous considering the time of the year. A drizzle here and there but all in all quite moderate, being a few degrees above zero during the whole race. Mikkel lead the way being the only one opting for the early train (32 km in 2:40 …). Four other runners took the later train and one did not take the train at all, calling it a night after six hours of walking. Another casualty of race scratched after 10:30 but after that everybody (all six of them) soldiered on. A new course record was achieved by Mikkel in 20:23, Henrik now has three finishes (out of his three attempts) and Stefan and Ross pushed the limits for a close call coming in with 5,5 minutes to spare … This edition paid for the school fees (for a full year) for ten children in the Central African Republic. "The greatest of all victories is to be victorious over yourself." Cut off time for this edition was 30 hours.

Perfect weather and a high finishers rate (highest ever) made this year a success run. It was even balmy in the day and all through the night. Even the few hours of rain could not stop the remaining participant who all soldiered on to reach the finish below 30 hours. This is a hard race. It is self supported all the way, and the finishing times include a boat - and a train ride, and the waiting times that has been anything to 2 second up to 60 minutes for some! Cut off time for this edition was 32 hours.

The weather sites had promised quite a crisp but relatively warm pre spring climate, with a few hours of rain here and there. And that is just what happened. The cold was cold but bearable. The start field was reduced to ten persons just the last week which is quite impressive on a cold and unsupported run of 160,9 km! Almost everybody opted for the train leaving Hyllie 3:56 h after the start, that is 31,7 km to go in the night, with navigation and stops. Which was perfect. The leader opted for the early train, which was missed by 60 seconds … Everybody stayed in the race during the night but when the day came people dropped out one by one until there was only five left. They all battled through the evening, night and on to the wee morning hours. Again – this is a race, route and format that seems to appeal to at least some as there is at least four people signed up for next years event already. As the race was so easy the next spring race will be a bit more … fun. As it will start a month earlier it will be interesting to run in the Scanian post winter of damp air and gust winds through one night or two. Cut off time for this edition was 36 hours.

Weather was the best it could be during Swedish autumn, even a bit warm for an hour or two. During the night it was damp and and a little bit cold though. More because of fatigue than Mother Nature. Most runners stuck together for the first Swedish part of the run but during the night most runners went their own ways. One runner decided to join just for a short while but ended up registering for the race during the run! All are welcome. One runner had all his clothes and energy in a pram and ended up quite exhausted since 0,2 % of the trail was stairs and hindrances. But still possible with a stroller. The route went through terrain and fishing villages during the first Swedish part and all through the architectural Gold Coast of Denmark north of Copenhagen. Back to Sweden the last 30 km went through pastures and farms. There were absolutely no battle of placements, Zingo ran first and the rest just struggled along. In the end all participant were very happy. Cut off time for this first year was 32 hours.
