Trans Scania Winter

Friends,

On the surface, Trans Scania is one of the most Covid-safe events imaginable. After all, you’re basically on your own in the woods for a couple of days. But looking a little closer, things aren’t that simple. People travel from near and far to participate in the race, transportation to the start line is needed, the preparations for the start can be a bit chaotic and crowded, and during the race the runners visit grocery stores and restaurants along the route, as well as risk injuries that might require medical attention.

The virus is spreading at a continuously increasing rate in Skåne, and health care staff are begging people not to do anything but the absolute necessary.

Given these circumstances we cannot go though with Trans Scania Winter 2021, it’s just not the right thing to do. Of course it’s sad, but it’s a luxury problem if ever there was one.

The race will be postponed until 2022, and all runners keep their starts. A year goes by quickly, and after that we certainly hope the situation has improved dramatically. Should anybody wish to step out of the race we’ll of course refund the whole registration fee.

Please contact us and let us know what you would like to do.

Stay safe, and take care of your loved ones,
Magnus and Martin

Registration open

The registration for Trans Scania Winter 2021 is now open. Trans Scania Winter is a race for Trans Scania finishers. However, in 2021 we’ll allow runners to invite a co-runner who does not have to have finished or participated in Trans Scania before. Read more on the Race info page. Co-runners register as regular participants, only providing a little bit more information.

If the race fills up before 08:00 Saturday, October 3, we’ll draw participants at random from a pool of all qualified registrations entered before that time.

Once you’re familiar with all the details, please proceed with your registration. Welcome!

Trans Scania Winter

Due to popular demand, we’ve decided to organize a second installation of Trans Scania Winter on January 22-24 2021. The same restrictions as last time will apply, that is the race is only open to Trans Scania finishers, and all runners must either run together with somebody or have online support keeping an eye on the map at all times. Even if we get another really mild winter the days are so short and the nights so dark that time of the year, so we feel more secure having these safety measures in place.

Registration will open in October, we’re looking forward to your application!
