”Jättelångt” is Swedish for ”very far”. And it’s also the name of a race held on a mid June Saturday every year since 2009, that will take you from the little fishing village of Grisslehamn some 100 km north of Stockholm to the pittoresque town of Norrtälje. The distance is around 70 km, and you run on the Roslagsleden trail. You will run on paths and scramble over rocks by the coast as well as on smaller country roads. You will run along the open sea, in forests, over fields and in the open early summer landscape. It’s all very Swedish! The trail is marked with permanent orange dots on trees and fence posts, so you should be able to find your way… but a few years ago we introduced a ”get lost” warranty – so keep your eyes open! There are a number of stops for food and drink, but we advise you to bring some water and snacks, and also your mobile phone – just in case! Public transport from Stockholm is excellent, we offer a bus service to the start, and your luggage will be transported from the start to the finish line. Speaking of the finish – there will be a party! You’ll get food and drink, you can chat about the race with old and new friends, and you can cheer on your co-runners as they finish.If you feel that very far is too far, there is also a relay. Five runners share the distance between them. The legs are approximately 10 km, 15 km, 21 km, 7 km and 15 km.And of course there is a Jättekort – very short – for the kids! Jättekort is run in Norrtälje on the same day as the other two races.And last… yes, Jättelångt is a race. We register times and we award prizes. But more than anything, Jättelångt is an experience. It’s exploring a part of Sweden in the most beautiful time of the year. It’s comraderie between the runners. It’s local food and drink. It’s celebration. It’s… Jättelångt!
