– You can still compete in, for example, the vertical race but spread over ten days. Each person runs individually and meets no one else and we get a result list with time instead, says Patrik Nordin, competition leader at the Mountain Marathon.
Should give the same mountain experience
It was not a matter of course that this year’s race would be over. It was not until June when the government’s decision to allow travel within Sweden’s borders came that the organizers decided not to cancel the course of the year. Major changes have had to be made in a short time, but Patrik Nordin believes that they will recognize themselves despite the special circumstances.
– We will give the same participants the same mountain experience that you usually get in normal cases so that they can enjoy nice expanses and trails. But it must be done in a safe way where they do not have to meet others, he says.
