– We have turned and turned on all parameters to see if it is possible to carry out St Olavsloppet 2021. Unfortunately, we have come to the conclusion that the current pandemic makes this impossible, says race director Peter Bring in a press release.
St Olavsloppet premiered in 1988 and is Sweden’s largest multi-day relay in Iöpning. Every year, the relay usually attracts thousands of participants of all ages. This year’s Race would have started on June 20 and lasted until July 3, however, a digital version of the competition is being arranged instead.
– As you know, we can not run together along the roads this year, but through a “at home variant” of the race, we pepper and cheer on each other digitally. Everyone runs when and where you want on their own or in small groups, but never alone, says Peter Bring.
