  • What do I do if I didn’t get an entry?

    The waiting list

    The Swedish Classic Registration

    Swedish Classic participants who have completed a 2016 ski event in Öppet Spår, Vasaloppet or Engelbrektsloppet and who do not have a starting entry for Vätternrundan 2016 are welcome to register. The registration is made at My Pages. Read more about it here!
