Maximum time for being qualified for RAAM as well as being an official finisher is 30 hours (new limit for 2019). The time stations are often small towns .

The SUb 610 races are open to solo riders, two person teams, tandems as well as other muscular driven vehicles such as velomobiles and recumbents.

 

The race HQ and start is 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. Small towns and villages do appear here and there. Many rather short climbs add up to nearly 5000 meters of elevation gain on the 610 course.

RAAM-style ultramarathon cycling is

  • non stop racing from start to finish.
  • a follow vehicle is mandatory
  • your 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.
  • non drafting.
  • racing along a fixed route on public roads.

This longdistance weekend is organized by CK Distans.
