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....

Fruens Hamster Trail #3, Motivation and New Sponsor

October 3rd I have ran Fruens Hamster Trail #3, a run organized by Team Citronmåne in Næstved. FHT is a 6h run where were run in a 4km route with around 200m of positive elevation gain per round. I am not so much into running rounds, but it is always really nice to join Team Citronmåne’s runs, since the atmosphere is really nice and the races are very well arranged....

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...

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...

Winforce 100 – 50km training

I went for a run to try the Winforce 100 route, which I’ll be running in August. Maibritt and I got a ride with Mads Nimann Jensen and we arrived there around 8:30AM. It rained the day before and the day was quite cloudy, chilly and with little rain. We all met at the start point, which is in a parking place in Odsherred, close to the beach (Højbjergvej, Ordrup,...

Salomon Hammer Trail 2013 – 50 Miles

Salomon Hammer Trail is considered as the hardest trail run in Denmark and it happens in the the Danish island of Bornholm (in the hardest part of it). I’ve chosen to run the 50 miles distance this year, since I considered this distance to match my current shape and the kilometers I could put in my legs during the last 4 months or so. There are several distances, from 25km...

Ultraløbet Fyr-til-fyr 2013

Ultraløbet Fyr-til-Fyr is a 60km trail run in the Danish island of Bornholm. The run starts at the lighthouse in the south of the Island (Duodde fyr) and goes through the east coast up to the lighthouse in the north of the island (Hammer fyr). Ultraløbet Fyr-til-fyr 2013 was the first edition of the run and approximately 85 runners showed up. The day was amazing: the sun was shinning and...

CPH 6 hours run

Last Saturday, the 27th of October 2012, I’ve participated on my first ultra run. The event is called CPH 6 hour run and it happens in Vallensbæk (Copenhagen Area). You basically run against the clock, trying to reach as far as you can in 6 hours. In order to time and measure the run properly, the scope of the event is reduced to a loop of 2221m around Tueholm lake....
