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. We arrived in Bornholm on Friday the 7th of November, the...

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...
