CK Distans is proud to organize an official RAAM Qualifier in Sweden.

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.

Basics

RAAM-style ultramarathon cycling is

  • non stop racing 600 km or longer (mostly longer).
  • a follow vehicle carries food, drink, clothes and spare parts to help you focus on the riding and minimize stop time. You facilitate the vehicle and crew.
  • no drafting.
  • traffic laws apply since you are racing 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.
