UTMB 2017 – Race report

UTMB is the race that made me start on trail running. I remember that I saw the video from UTMB and the list of mandatory equipment back in 2011-2012, and thought that it should be a crazy adventure to run around the Mont Blanc massive. At that time, I had already been to Chamonix (I have been there for the first time in 2004) and I knew how spectacular the...

100 miles of Istria 2016 – Race report

This year’s season has started a bit messy to me (and still is), since I did not get into any of the races that I REALY wanted: UTMB and Western States. So it ended up that I had to figure out how to qualify to WS and get some points to UTMB next year. The 100 miles of Istria seemed like the perfect opportunity to do both things at once....

TDS 2015 – Race Report (UTMB week)

Late in July, I have been to Chamonix for a week holidays with my girlfriend and have been checking out the TDS route a bit. We have ran, in the opposite direction, the 25-ish latest km of the route: from Les Monquarts to Les Contamines. It was really nice to check the last climbs and have a sneak peak on the route. The first impression was that the route was...

Training for TDS 2015

In around 3 weeks from now I’ll be running the TDS (Sur les Traces des Ducs de Savoie – a UTMB week race). As a part of my vacations I spent a full week in Chamonix, where my girlfriend Maibritt and I have explored the area and checked the last 25km of the course (from Les Monquarts to Les Contamines). The course looks fantastic and I cannot wait to experience...

Lavaredo Ultra Trail 2015

Lavaredo Ultra Trail 2015 was supposed to be my main goal for this season. However, due to the fact that I have changed job and had a very intensive course just before the race, I was not really able to prepare mentally for this race and neither get the rest that I need. We had originally planned to fly to Cortina on Wednesday before the race, but since I had...

La Petite Trotte à Leon (PTL) 2014 – The longest UTMB race

It took some time to write this since there was a lot to digest after this race. So it got a bit long :-)… Before the race As soon as I finished Fyr-til-fyr, in April, Moses came to talk to me and asked me whether I had any plans to August. As I answered that I haven’t any, he asked me if I would like to run the PTL with...

80km du Mont Blanc 2014 – Race Report

I’ve been long waiting for this race. I had been in Chamonix before and I knew how beautiful the city and surroundings were, so I was really looking forward to run in those mountains. I’ve traveled to Chamonix with two good friends from Denmark: Mads Blume and Christoffer Friman. Both would be running the 80km du Mont Blanc as well. We arrived there the Wednesday before the race, so we...
