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...

Firkløver 50/50 2015 (1st Edition) – Race Report

Finally I’ve got time to write this race report, I’ve been quite busy in the last months and haven’t had much time to post. Firkløver is a race that happens in the North of Zealand in Denmark. The 2015 edition was the first version of the race. It is organized by some very nice guys that are passionate for the sport. Two races happen in the same day, a 50km...

Krøllebølle Trail Invitational #2

The Race Krøllebølle Trail Invitational is a small event organized by my friend Moses Lovstad. The idea is that we run around the island of Bornholm through the Kyststien (a trail on the cost of the island, which is around 115km long) in social tempo and at the same time try to beat the supported FKT for this trail. You can find the GPX file for the route here. We...

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...

Last months and upcoming races

A lot has happened in the last 2 months. To start with the wildest, I’ll be running the PTL (306km and 28000+ high meters) with my friend Moses Lovstad (aka trailløberen) in the end of August. This has changed my focus from the 80km du Mont Blanc, which was my main goal this year, to the PTL. Since Fyr-til-fyr I have been ramping up my training and I finished the last...

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....

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...

Winforce 100km – Race Report

Saturday, the 17th of August I’ve ran the Winforce 100, which is a 100km trail run that happens in Odsherred, Denmark. A very nice thing about this race is that it is non-profitable. Ultrarun.com will donate all the profits to a danish institution called TUBA, which takes care of children whose parents are alcoholics and/or drug addicts. The 100km are split in 4 laps into a 25km course. Each lap...
