Vasaloppet
vasaloppet: Vasaloppet is the world’s biggest cross-country ski race. Vasaloppet’s Winter Week with its cross-country skiing and Summer Week with mountain biking and running attrackt a total of almost 100.000 registered paricipants every year. Since the beginning in 1922 over 1.5 million participants have passed the finish line portal in Mora. Vasaloppet is a non profit making organization owned by IFK Mora and Sälens IF. An engine for public health and sports club activities, in forefathers’ tracks for future victories!
vasaloppet.se/en/

Wikipedia: Vasaloppet (Swedish for ‘the Vasa-race’) is an annual long distance cross-country ski race held on the first Sunday of March. The 90 km (56 mi) course starts in the village of Sälen and ends in the town of Mora in northwestern Dalarna, Sweden. It is the oldest cross-country ski race in the world, as well as the one with the highest number of participants. The race was inspired by a notable journey King Gustav Vasa made from Mora to Sälen when he was fleeing from Christian II’s soldiers during the winter of 1520–1521. According to legend, he fled on skis. The modern competition started in 1922 and it has been a part of the Worldloppet events since 1978.

The museum has been updated several times since then and for the Winter Week 2017 we opened a special section about ”Mora-Nisse”, Vasaloppet’s greatest icon through the ages. The new museum offers visitors a wide view of Vasaloppet’s long history and through modern expression it shows the journey Vasaloppet has taken from being a cross-country race to becoming an arena for exercise and public health all year round.
