Route goes along Göta Kanal from Mem to Motala. It takes you around 3 larger lakes. The route has an easy terrain, mainly gravelled surface when running beside the canal and asphalt when rounding lakes. It crosses between the Baltic Sea and Vättern.
Hello, we are two buddies that will attempt to crush our own PB:s for distance by jogging this route on Saturday the 22:nd. "We" are John Wiklund and Tobias Salonen Melchersson of Linköping Sweden. So this is close to home :-)
As mentioned, this is well beyond our longest distances from earlier. Tobbe is a Marathon runner, and John sort of drifted into short Ultras a couple of years back.
Tobbe is the fast guy with the high weekly average, and John is the planner who loves long hours in steep mountains all year around.
To Markus Åkerman - all respect for completing this stretch! Well done! Looking forward to following your tracks. All the best!
Wish us luck! /John
