The Trosa Ultra Backyard race started at 10 this morning April 28 and it´s still going on. In the morning it was 200 runners and after 8 laps there were a little more than 100 runners still running.

It´s so fun to follow this race. They start a lap every hour and the runners have exactly one hour to finish the lap. Some run fast the whole lap. Not a wise tactic if you want to win the race and don´t have endlessly with energy in you. Some run the half lap and walk the rest. Some run slow but steady the whole lap.
Those who hang in until the very end can make 24-31 laps! That´s 24-31 hours of running!
In this race every kind of runner participate. From young ones to old ones, from women to men, from thin to big, from small to tall. From those with full sight to those with less sight ability who needs guidance company. It´s not about how you look, it´s not about how fast you can run, it´s all about how you can run hours and hours without getting tired.
Here´s some pictures from the day session of the race. It will continue when dark falls. I´ll hope to be back with night pictures if I stay awake that long.
This is so exciting. I wish you could see this i.r.l.
Oh, now the clock has passed 20, soon they come. I must count them and see how many that are still running in lap 10.
I counted to a little over 90.
As you can se the daylight shift from one lap to another.
I hope I can show you some night photos tomorrow.
I will go to bed, but the runners will run all night long and when I wake up, they will still run.
That´s amazing I think. I get tired of running a couple of meters if I don´t have a tennis- or a football infront of me to chase 😉
Have a nice Saturday evening you all!
Oh, now the soon pass on their way back. I have to watch who look tired and who look like they wanna race some more laps.
