Axa Fjällmaraton (mountain marathon) in Vålådalen/Ottsjö just outside of Åre, has become a yearly challenge for us. Last year we did the Öppet fjäll, which is the full marathon with open starting times. This year due to less pre season (and on season) training we decided to run the half marathon instead. In almost perfect conditions the four of us did really well, our individual conditions taken into consideration. Myself finished 13th with a time of 2:13,49.
But the times are irrelevant (as long as you beat your friends) since the track in itself is a spectacular experience, and I think all of us will be back next year – maybe even going for the real thing!
