The 100th edition of Vasaloppet is already fully booked. In total, nearly 30.000 have registered for next year's Winter Week.

“We have noticed an increased interest, nationally and internationally, in registering both for the historic 100th Vasaloppet and overall for the races in the Winter Week next year, which is very gratifying,” says Johan Eriksson, CEO of Vasaloppet, in a press release.

Seventeen days after registration opened, Vasaloppet 2024 was fully booked on Wednesday, with 15.800 participants, the maximum. In total, nearly 30.000 people have already registered for a place in the various races during Vasaloppet’s Winter Week 2024, where two new events have also been launched: Open Track Monday 30 and Open Track Monday 45, where participants can choose between skate and classic techniques. And apart from Vasaloppet, plenty of starting places are left for all the other races.

“It has been a nice winter at Vasaloppet Arena, where we had a good amount of snow, and the interest in skiing here has been great. Now we are very focused on the 100th Vasaloppet in 2024, while at the same time, we can sum up a very successful edition of this year’s winter week,” says Johan Eriksson.

FACTS – Vasaloppet’s Winter Week 2023 In Numbers

  • The 12 different races in Vasaloppet’s Winter Week 2023, Hemmavasan skis, and the Children’s Vasaloppet in Sälen and Mora attracted 52.027 registered participants.
  • Of those registered for Vasaloppet’s Winter Week in 2023, 35.5 percent were women, and 64.5 percent were men.
  • Of those registered in 2023, 45.246 came to the start, and 94.8 percent of these, 42.898 participants, made it to the finish line (including the five legs of the Relay).
  • In Vasaloppet 2023, 91.1 percent of the 13.268 starters made it all the way from the start in Berga village to the finish in Mora.
  • The 12.087 who finished in Mora meant that 624.559 finishes had been registered in the 99 Vasaloppets since 1922.

For those who want to start training for the 100th Vasaloppet and the Winter Week in 2024, the conditions in the Vasaloppet Arena are still excellent.
