CK Distans is proud to organize an official RAAM Qualifier in Sweden. Melfar 24 in Denmark has been the only RQ in Scandinavia for more than a decade and with Swedish Ultra bike 610, SUb 610, there is a RAAM style event in Scandinavia as well.

We are also pleased to invite endurance cyclists who want to ride solo but without a support car to the Randonneur division. The Randonneur division is not an official RAAM qualifier.

The 610 km route begins and ends in Köping, 150 km from Stockholm. The course, on roads with mostly very limited traffic, takes you through sparsely populated areas and past beautiful lakes in vast pine forests. Many rather short climbs add up to nearly 5000 meters of elevation gain. Maximum time for being qualified for RAAM as well as being an official finisher is 32 hours. Most time stations are unmanned by us.

The Ultramarathon as well as the Randonneur division is open to solo riders and two person teams.

Fastest male under 19 hours and fastest woman under 20 hours will be rewarded with prize money!

Basics

Ultramarathon cycling is: no drafting, nonstop racing and that you bring your own follow vehicle that carries food, drink, clothes, spare parts to help you focus on the riding and to minimize stop time. The race takes place on public roads.

Competing in the Randonneur division means that you are self-supported while racing on the same course as the ultramarathon cyclists. The maximum time is 40 hours for both solo riders and  two person teams. The Randonneur division is not a RAAM qualifier.

Race route

Prize money in the Solo Ultra division was paid to the winner of the race 2017 because of his finish time 18 hours 53 minutes. We may decide to create new criteria for prize money in 2018

2017: The fastest woman with a finish time under 20 hours receives 5000 SEK.

2017: The fastest male with a finish time under 19 hours receives 5000 SEK.

Organized by CK Distans.
