XIV traditional international Rostec Demino FIS/Worldloppet Ski Marathon 2021. Day 1.

XIV traditional international Rostec Demino FIS/Worldloppet Ski Marathon 2021. Day 2.

16/03/2014 Other races during the Winter Week still have spots left!
The enormous interest for Vasaloppets winter week continues to grow. When registration to the 2015 race opened at nine o’clock Sunday morning the pressure was so great that the website crashed. When the system re-opened an hour later, Vasaloppet and StafettVasan were filled in less than two minutes.

- In spite of this warm winter, we can only note that the interest for our races has reached entirely new levels which, of course, is the best response we can have for all our work. It is fantastic that so very many want to be active and set long-sighted goals for their training. But, then, it is very regrettable that the technique did not make the grade, and I offer my apologies to all who had to sit and wait this morning. We must, quite clearly, check out and further refine the registration procedure to meet this huge interest in a better way, says Vasaloppet’s CEO Anders Selling.
The reason the servers crashed was that interest for the winter weeks’ other races was very considerably greater than previously; this meant a four times heavier load than in 2013, when Vasaloppet was filled in 10 minutes. When the registry opened again at ten o’clock, there were made available only start places to the most popular races, Vasaloppet and StafettVasan, and these were then fully booked in one and a half and two minutes, respectively.
- Naturally it’s a shame that we can’t make room for all, but Vasaloppet has its 15,800 places and, sadly, many will miss out when the interest is so great. In the whole winter week we have places for 68,000 skiers, so if one can consider one of the other races there is still the possibility to be part of next winter’s festival, says Vasaloppet’s CEO Anders Selling.
Entry registration procedures to the other races in the 2015 winter week are now moved to new dates and split up over several days to minimise the pressure. Registration to these races is done under “My Pages” at and opens as follows:
Tuesday 18 March at 19.00: TjejVasan and HalvVasan
Wednesday 19 March at 19.00: KortVasan and UngdomsVasan
Thursday 20 March at 19.00: Öppet Spår Monday and Öppet Spår Sunday
Friday 21 March: Registration codes for Vasaloppet and StafettVasan are sent out.
