The First Unofficial Swedish Ultraman Coast to Coast Race

Lite fredagsreklam för en absurd tävling som jag har varit till en liten del skyldig, iallafall på idéstadiet. För min del ligger tävlingen fel mellan 2013 års A-tävlingar, men jag hoppas kunna vara med delvis, antingen som funkis eller liknande.

July 18, 2013 at 4:00pm until July 21, 2013 at 10:00pm

Sim-momentet kommer bli episkt. En simning som jag tänkt göra i flera år. 8-10 km OW-simning (riktig OW-simning). Starten: http://sv.wikipedia.org/wiki/Nidingen

Cyklingen kommer bli grym.

Löpningen blir oförglömlig.

    Ingen dålig utmaning. Ligger tyvärr fel för mig också. Plus att jag inte är riktigt där än, men om detta blir ett återkommande event så är jag klart intresserad för framtiden.
