Our Winter Challenges
Sandsjöbacka Trail Marathon was born after many lonely winter trail runs through the Sandsjöbacka and Änggårdsbergen nature reserves. The sense of wilderness that resides so close to the city. the intense feeling of running somewhere, through dawn and the low daylight of the winter. This is the feeling and the challenge we want to convey to you.
22 km (Sätila Vision Trail)
The 22 K starts in Kållered and includes nice trail running on Torrekullaleden and Sandsjöbackaleden hiking trails and, as all the races, includes the tough finish through Mölndalsravinen, over Bredfjäll in Änggårdsbergen and through Botaniska to Slottskogen. Map and more info >>
25 km (Sätila Vision Night Trail)
Head lamp running is special. The first race of Sandsjöbacka Trail Winter is a 25 K night course special, marked with reflective material all the way from Lindås to the finish in Slottskogsvallen, going via Tråkärrslätt, Sandsjöbackaleden, Sisjön and Änggårdsbergen. Map and more info >>
The 30 km race is a short version of the longer races that still contains the drumlin, Årekärr and many of the other most beautiful spots of the Sandsjöbacka nature reserve. Starts by the motorway stop Sandsjöbacka, goes southwest over the Drumlin and then northwards along Sandsjöbackaleden. Map and more info >>
44 km is our classic distance, with a pre-dawn start in Kungsbacka on Saturday at 07:00 and a few km of hard surface running to the trailhead in Grönabur and then almost the entire Sandsjöbackaleden northwards. Also included is a detour over the open landscape on and around the Sandsjöbacka Drumlin. Map and more info >>
82 km starts by Tjolöholms castle with a seaside run on technical paths marked by reflex. A bit of hard surface followed by trail Hallandsleden to Lindome and then southwards into Sandsjöbacka and over the Sandsjöbacka Drumlin. A course rich in variation that grows a bit tougher towards the end.
