The route

The route is 610 km. Start and finish is at the Best Western Hotel Scheele in Köping. The race is held on open roads with mostly very limited traffic. The route takes you through sparsely populated areas and past beautiful lakes in vast pine forests.
The hills are up to five kilometers long but almost never steep. They add up to nearly 5000 meters of elevation gain.

There will be a number of Time Stations (TS). Most stations are unmanned. The crew will report passage by calling the race HQ.
