Welcome to the world of Vasaloppet. A 100-year tradition that combines elite and recreational athletes ski together as they take on a 90km cross country course in the hills of Sweden. Couldn’t find an official tally of participants in this mass start but there is mention of 10,000 racers in total. Might have been in waves but this alone has gotta be in the thousands right?

Somewhere in that mass of humanity is Robin Bryntesson who did the enire race backwards to raise money to convert vans into ambulances in Ukraine. Cheers to this dude! DONATE HERE.
