A Swedish Classic
A Swedish Classic
– a highly motivated and challenging year!
A Swedish Classic is a sporting challenge beyond the ordinary, where you within a 12 month period should ski Engelbrektsloppet or Vasaloppet, cycle Vätternrundan, swim Vansbrosimningen and run Lidingöloppet. You can start with any race you want, and then have one year to finish all four races.
There are three classics and challenges, you can choose from: Women’s Classic, Half Classic and a Swedish Classic. The challenge to master four different disciplines and different distances for a year is great, and it is important to be as prepared as possible. Since the start in 1971, over 100,000 avid athletes and enthusiasts conducted any of the classics, and this year we think that among 10 000 people will manage performance.
Some want to hit new personal record, others are aiming to implement the races better than before and some are with great enthusiasm on the start line for the first time. Regardless of pride to have completed a classic is unbeatable.
A Swedish Classic consists of the races Engelbrektsloppet, Vasaloppet, Vätternrundan, Vansbrosimningen and Lidingöloppet and they are all very popular events and attracts around 180 000 participants.
