    The story of Ultravasan

    A happy coincidence led to Ultravasan seeing the light of day. Namely the fact that Mora was home to one of the world's foremost sports organizers, Vasaloppet, as well as home to one of the world's foremost ultrarunners, Jonas Buud! He brought experiences from ultrarunning races all over the world and was eager to give other ultrarunners the opportunity to run a race in the classic terrain between Sälen and Mora. "If you can ski and bike between Sälen and Mora, surely you can run it too," enthusiasts said.
