The current race records are 2:27:59, set in 1999, and 2:50:36, set in 2008, for men and women respectively.

The city’s name is believed to be constructed from the words “väg” (road) and “sjö” (lake), meaning the road over the frozen Växjö Lake that farmers took in the winter to get to the marketplace that later became the city.
