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....

Parforce Trail – 21Km

The 24th October I have participated in the Parforce Trail run in St. Dyrehave. There were 2 distances, 10+ and 20+ km. I was lucky to get a start number from 32Gi Team and chose to run the long one, which should be a little over 21Km, as we got to know on the day. The run started punctually at 9AM with a braveheart-style start, where all runners were standing...

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...

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...

Ultraløbet Fyr-til-fyr 2014

I have been running many races in the last 2 months or so. Most of them I’ve registered last year, expecting that I would have a long training period in the winter. Things didn’t really go as expected and although the ground shape is there, I miss some fine tuning in my training. My expectation for Fyr-til-fyr this year was to run under 6h, but try to run under 5h30min....

World Half Marathon Championship – Copenhagen 2014

It has been over one and a half year ago since I ran my last half marathon and I was not really planning to run this one. But since I’ve got a number from my girlfriend Maibritt Skovgaard, I decided to run it. It is not every day that you get the chance to experience a world championship :-). I had really low expectations about my performance, since after my...

Transgrancanaria 125km – 1st March 2014

Some months after I have registered to the Transgrancanaria with a couple with other Danish friends, I had an overuse injury in my right foot (plantar fasciitis). That was in September 2013. It took me quite a while to recover and it was just some months ago that I was able to start running. Although I was able to run, I still didn’t trust my body 100% and I could...
