Choose between Full Distance (about 50 km) or Half Distance (25 km).
This year’s edition of Sigtunarännet takes place on Sunday 20 February, starting at 09:30. You can choose to go full distance 50 km or half distance 25 km.
The main plan for the course is to go two laps from Sigtuna south past Steninge Castle and Rosersberg Castle and then turn back to Sigtuna. One or two ride stations are offered along the way with fluid and energy depending on the route.
Helmets and ice studs are mandatory and we recommend that you bring something more to drink and eat. There are officials along the route but they are relatively few. All rides are at your own risk.
At the finish, all competitors receive a medal, cap and a seat base for the skate bag. Registration costs 600 SEK. Everyone who has been registered for a previous race that has been cancelled will have the opportunity to participate free of charge.
Sigtuna Stad is Sweden’s epicentre for long-distance skating located at Mälaren, only 11 km from Arlanda, 37 km from Stockholm and 27 km from Uppsala. In addition to Mälaren, there are hundreds of other lakes in direct proximity where you can seek out the best ices. When you don’t skate, you can visit churches and ruins, castles and crofters, the smallest town hall and the largest airport – they’re all part of our history and they’re all worth a visit.
Please take a walk on Stora Gatan which is Sweden’s first pedestrian street. The pedestrian street was built in 970, i.e. the same year that the city of Sigtuna was founded. Today, a thousand years later, Sigtuna is still an international meeting place. Thanks in large part to its location and proximity to the outside world via Arlanda, Sweden’s largest airport. Here begins Sweden.
