Blodslitet in Fredrikstad and PWT in China
Last Saturday I was running the traditional Ultralong distance race Blodslitet in Fredrikstad, witch was 23,5 km long with mass start. After victory the last two years I was leading the Ragnar Weums Trophy, where the best runner overall 2008 - 2010 got 20.000 NOK. If my strongest opponent Anders Nordberg won the race I had to finish top 10 to win overall.

I started safe and was in the lead of the group with my forking to the first two controls, but then I took my own route to the 3rd control. I think the route choice was good, but I missed the control by two minutes, and was running alone most of the remaining part of the 3 forked loops of 3 km each. I continued doing some smaller mistakes, partly because I had problems reading the detailed map in 1:15000.

Out on the last long loop I was 13th, and had to pass some runners to win the Ragnar Weums Trophy. The first half of the long loop went well, and I was actually able to catch up some time to Andres Nordberg, who was alone in the lead. When I passed the arena at the end of the race I heard I was 8th, and I was relaxing a bit at the same times as I started to get really tired. I could finish on the 8th place, far behind Nordberg, and disappointed about my performance in the first part of the race, but happy I was still able to win the Ragnar Weums Trophy. On Blodslitets homepage you can find results, splits, GPS tacking and maps, but unfortunately it looks like my GPS was not working

PWT On Sunday I travelled directly to Beijing in China, where I am going to run Park World Tour the coming days. The reason I have not made any update before is that we have not had internet connection before today, but I will hopefully write more after tomorrow’s sprint race in the Olympic park. Orientering.no made an short interview with me about PWT today.
