2024 GOTRUN TRAIL FEST WILL HOST THE SWEDISH CHAMPIONSHIP IN TRAIL RUNNING ON THE DISTANCE "ENKLE" 50 MILES (81 KM)
SM (Swedish Championship) in trail running consist of both senior- and veteran classes. This means that everyone born 1989 or earlier compete in both the senior championship and in ”their” veteran class. The veteran classes are divided in five year intervals. (M/F 35 born 1985-89, M/F 40 born 1980-84, M/F 45 born 1975-79 etc.)
Within the framework of the SM competitions, the Team SM with men's & women's classes, seniors, of 80 km is also decided. To get results in the team competition, an association must have at least three men or ladies completing the race. The team's result is the sum of the placings in the individual SM competition, senior class, for the three best runners in the team. The team with the lowest total wins the team competition. In order for the team competition to take place, it is required that at least three teams have at least three runners registered in the SM class and that at least two teams come to the start with at least three runners.
To participate in SM a runner must represent a member association of Svenska Friidrottsförbundet. Runners who have participated in a sanctioned athletics event (track, terrain, road or trail) during 2023 or 2024 are tied to continue representing their latest association, or to register a transfer lateste one month before SM.
Transfer responsible is Ellinor Jansson firstname.lastname@example.org.
