Now 50,000 participants have registered entries to one or other of the eight races in Vasaloppet’s winter week 2013. This is four weeks earlier than last year that the 50,000 figure was passed, and indicates that we will see many well prepared and well trained participants on Vasalopps Arena ski tracks this winter.
For the fourth successive year Vasaloppet’s winter week has attracted at least 50,000 entries. Vasaloppet (15,800 entries) and StafettVasan (8,000 entries) are already completely full. TjejVasan is filled to about 75-80 percent, with already almost 8,000 entries. The registration ceiling is 10,000 for TjejVasan. The same ceiling also applies for KortVasan which is already two thirds full.
Öppet Spår has in total over 9,000 entries registered, but here there are in total 18,000 places available divided over the two days. The two other races are HalvVasan and UngdomsVasan.
Last winter 97 percent of those that started reached their finish during the winter week, a very high figure. With so many now registered so early, we can expect that participants come to the start even better prepared for 2013. For the 2013 summer races, CykelVasan and VasaStafetten, there are also more than 13,000 registered entries.
