Registration is open for 2023!
Winter. Dark. Cold. Nothing much to look forward to. Lack of motivation. Next race too far ahead. Quite depressing really.
BUT let's change this with an adventure in spectacular environment along the Gothic trail on eastern Gotland, where you (hopefully) will meet SPRING & run on nice green trails!
Following the success of the 1st edition of the race in Jan-2022, although with too fantastic weather (besides the heavy winds of 25m/s at night), we - Run Raisers in cooperation with Wisby Ultralöparförening (WULF) - again invite you to an exclusive trail adventure on the island of Gotland. Saturday March 18h the 2nd edition of GotRun Winter Trail 2023 - takes place. An experience we'll do our best for you to remember. Hopefully the weather will be sunny, dry & windy so you feel the power of nature! However, there is rarely any ice & snow on the ground in Gotland in March, instead soft & nice terrain = possibly the BEST RUNNING CONDITIONS in Sweden this time of year!
Our ambition is to gather a great bunch of ultra runners (rookies of course also welcome) one weekend on the island to run together & chill our. Fantastic trails, food & drinks, all with a touch of Gotland. It will be interesting conversations & lots of shared experiences & tips. In addition all participants will get insights about the fascinating history of the east coast of Gotland, where you will follow the dramatic Gothic trail.
Obviously this is a race & winners will be celebrated & medals given, but the focus is not the actual race but the experience on Gotland in a season which you normally don't associate with Gotland.
We will all run the race for charity with the Swedish Child Diabetes Foundation Barndiabetesfonden as beneficiary;
part of the registration fee will be donated. The foundation supports research aimed at preventing, curing or alleviating diabetes in children & adolescents. 2022 we raised an incredible 27.794 SEK.
Base camp for the race is the cosy seaside resort Ljugarn at the east coast of Gotland.
The race is Saturday March 18 (Note! The distance "Dubble" 100 miles starts already Friday March 17) & the majority of the course follows Östkustleden with an extra loop of great trail in the woods of Ljugarn. Östkustleden starts in Anga Prästänge & follow the shore line with varying surfaces - gravel, stones, asphalt, sand & forest trails. This trail is marked with orange signs on stones/trees/poles.
