Make next year historic – take home a Vasaloppstrippeln with anniversary shimmer

A proper challenge. The stylish, coveted, Vasaloppstrippeln T-shirt. An experience with a dear friend. There are already many reasons to go for Vasaloppstrippeln and next year there is another: Vasaloppet celebrates 100 years!

To complete Vasaloppstrippeln you need to ski, bike and run 90, 45 or 30 kilometres in forefathers’ tracks during one and the same calendar year.

Regardless of the distance you choose you can, through Vasaloppstrippeln, look forward to an extra boost to your training for months to come.
”If you’ve ever thought about doing Vasaloppstrippeln, take the opportunity to do so during our anniversary year for an extra festive spirit. We can, after a long break, finally run our standard races on location in the Vasaloppet Arena again, something that we and participants have been longing for,” says Tommy Höglund, Sport Manager at Vasaloppet.

It does not matter which race you choose for each section as long as the distance in the same. For example, if you’re aiming to complete Vasaloppstrippeln 30 you can choose between three different ski races: Tjejvasan 30, Vasaloppet 30 and the new Nattvasan 30 where skate style is allowed.
”Vasaloppstrippeln often leads to a challenge in the sections you’re less familiar with. Maybe you’ve skied for many years but you’re not an experienced mountain biker? Or it could be the other way around. Apart from the sporty challenge you’ll also have reason to visit beautiful Dalarna in both summer and winter,” says Tommy Höglund.

New additions to Vasaloppstrippeln

All Nattvasan distances, 30, 45 and 90 kilometres, are part of Vasaloppstrippeln. Freestyle skating is allowed and starting this winter you can also participate in Nattvasan as a single individual rather than a two-person team. Öppet Spår is part of Vasaloppstrippeln 90 and new for this year you can freestyle ski in Öppet Spår Monday.

Registration for Vasaloppstrippeln 2022 is open

You can register for all three races at the same time or through separate registrations, race by race.

You can count your ski races from 2020 or 2021 as part of Vasaloppstrippeln 2022 – a special rule due to the pandemic. If you’ve completed multiple ski races 2020–2022, the fastest will count as part of Vasaloppstrippeln.
