Press Accreditation for Vasaloppet's Winter Week 2020

Pressmeddelande   •   Feb 12, 2020 13:35 CET

We hereby invite you to visit the 2020 Vasaloppet Winter Week – 499 years after Gustav Vasa's adventure in Dalarna. The Winter Week starts, as always, with Vasaloppet 30 (previous Kortvasan) on Friday February 21 and finishes with the 96th Vasaloppet on Sunday, March 1.

It's the eleventh year in a row that Vasaloppet's Winter Week will attract over 55,000 registered participants. It was on January 30, 2010 that the 50,000 dream was first reached for the Winter Week and Vasaloppet can truly look back on a fantastic decade. This year the Winter and Summer Weeks have eleven races each – and besides the fully-booked Vasaloppet there are start places available in all races for those who want to participate.

Who will lead the way up the first hill, who will be first to Evertsberg, and who will win? Both three-time victors Jörgen Brink and John Kristian Dahl have retired but no less than eight previous winners are registered for the elite group in Vasaloppet 2020: Tore Björseth Berdal, Andreas Nygaard, Petter Eliassen, Anders Aukland and, in the women's class, Laila Kveli, Katerina Smutná, Lina Korsgren and Britta Johansson Norgren. 

Visma Ski Classics is running its tenth season and this past November they announced an exciting addition to Vasaloppet 2020. A so-called Climb checkpoint after 3 km in both the men's and women's class for those who are first to reach the top of the first hill!

Sveriges Television (SVT) will live broadcast Tjejvasan and the fully booked Vasaloppet.


As usual this year's Kranskulla, Fanny Axelsson, and Kransmas, Daniel Duhlbo, will be working hard with many different assignments during the Winter Week. Not least they'll be standing by to welcome the victors at the finish line. But we also have upwards of 4,000 other fantastic functionaries that make these events possible!

Press Accreditation for 2020 is open 

Accreditation is obligatory for all media covering the event. Register your attendance in good time via the link below no later than February 18.

Personal press passes can be collected at the press centre (Mora) from Thursday, February 20.
