Engelbrektsloppet is the largest ski marathon event in Sweden behind Vasaloppet.
The race was held in 1969 for the first time and is named to our freedom fighter Engelbrecht, who defeated the Danish in 1400 who occupied the Swedes. Every year 2.000 to about 3.000 Ski Marathon runners take part in Engelbrektsloppet.
The start and finish area are located at the Square in the center of Norberg. Since 2017 also the lapping goes across the Square in the city of Norberg. It's unique in Sweden and gives the race a great and unique atmosphere for skiers, families and other spectators that can easily follow the race. Engelbrektsloppet is always scheduled on the 2nd Sunday in February.
The grounds around Norberg are ideal for cross-country skiing. Slightly hilly, curvy and mostly in the woods. The trail goes over some mountain ranges and along beautiful lakes. The trail will be prepared with at least 3 tracks side by side.
The Engelbrektsloppet is also a qualifying race for a better start group in Vasaloppet.
Engelbrektsloppet starts in Norberg, a small town of about 6.000 inhabitants in central Sweden. Norberg is about 140 km from Stockholm and is within 2 hours by car away from the capital. Norberg is located in mountain areas, in the heart of a mining and steel district. Iron ore was mined in the region since the 13th Century, but today no more mines are in operation. However, there are still steel productions in the area. Companies like Sandvik, Outokumpu, Atlas Copco and Seco produce the famous "Swedish Steel".
We are looking forward to welcome skiers from all of Europe to Norberg. The whole village will do there best to make you feel welcome!
