    Chance to win an electric car from Volvo in Hemmavasan 2021

    Once again, the pandemic prevents the regular Vasaloppet Summer Week from going ahead, but participants can still reach their cycling or running finish line – in Hemmavasan. Last year's success is back, now upgraded with great prizes, including an electric car from Volvo. "We know that many have trained extra hard this past year, so it feels good to be able to offer a safe and flexible solution. At the same time, we are happy that elite participants this year can compete in Cykelvasan 90, Ultravasan 90 and Ultravasan 45 on location in the Vasaloppet Arena," says Johan Eriksson, Vasaloppet's CEO.

    Vasaloppet in summary and looking ahead – registration for 2022 opens on Sunday

    It was a different Vasaloppet winter 2021, but we got it done. Due to the pandemic, Tjejvasan and Vasaloppet were the only races completed and only elite skiers could participate. But thanks to an open Vasaloppet Arena, all the recreational skiers could cross the finish line of their training too, during three and a half weeks in Vasaåket. There were many days of sunshine and blue skies, for example during Vasaloppet where a powerful tailwind contributed to strong record times. Here's a summary of the Vasaloppet winter 2021 and a look ahead at our 100th anniversary celebration.
