Fueling stations

Sigtunarännet full distance and half distance are held on the same track but those that are doing the full distance do two laps. The track starts in central Sigtuna and then goes south towards the east side of the bay. It is a beautiful track close to land passing both Steninge Castle and the Royal Rosersbergs Palace.  By the Rosersberg Palace (approx. 14,5 km) is the first re-fueling station where all participants are offered fluids, nutrion bars and bananas. Then the race continues north and by Sigtuna there is another re-fueling station. There are toilets at the start in Sigtuna and at Rosersberg Palace. The course can of course change due the conditions of the ice on the day of the race.

INstead of medal

instead of medals we have chosen to donate the same amount as the cost of the medals to the Swedish Society for Nature Conservation. We hope and think that most participants appreciate that we enhance the chance for our children to be able to skate on natura ice instead of a medal. All children participating in short race will receive a diploma printed on environment compensated paper.
