About Soteleden Terrain Marathon
One of the tougher terrain races you can experience in Sweden. The place is Bovallstrand, located in northern Bohuslän – a coastal county on the Swedish west coast.
Well over 1000 meters of altitude, forests, mountains, rocks, bogs and cobblestones are some challenges along the 44km-long route. The organizers offer two distances, 44km and 21km, which takes you through a lovely genuine Swedish environment. The course is a tough terrain path along parts of the trail “soteleden” where the substrate consists of trails, rock, roots, mud, meadows, bog, gravel roads and some asphalt. There will be many ascents and descents.
In addition to breathtaking views, the course will offer you lovely forest running through birch, beech, fir and oak forests. When you least expect it, you will running on the famous Swedish granite. There are up, down, up, down and few moments recovery. But suddenly, you find yourself in a beautiful sea of wood anemones.
