About Malm Ultraintervall

Hello!

I am the race director for Malm Ultraintervall, and found this forum by a search on Google. I do not understand the Finnish as well, but after what I understand some of you like the concept of ultra interval.

The reason that my race is that after an interval concept is that we have hopes to attract more people to participate - people who might not set to start on the ultra basically. With such a concept, it is also possible to run only some of the rounds, and for many 6 x 12 km is perceived less scary than, say, 72 kilometers in one.

I also understand that you are discussing how hard the course is. You can see the height profile in this URL: http://malmultraintervall.webs.com/hoydeprofilnmui.bmp

If anyone is considering to participate, you can contact me on e-mail: jegheter_kenneth@hotmail.com, and I can give you more information (in english) about the event. We offer, among other things, free accommodation at a school.

You can also ask questions on this forum, I guess I'll be back.

Hope to see some answers, in english primarily ;-)

Hi Kenneth and welcome to juoksufoorumi.fi. An idea of an ultra interval -race sounds really interesting. Unfortunately 6-7.6.09 happens to be the same weekend when there is 100km Suomi-Juoksu -race in Salo in which I have already enrolled.

Hopefully your race will be organized in following years too. There is a good chance that I will participate in some year in future.

The course seems to be pretty tough, which I find very alluring. I guess 6th lap may be an unforgettable experience, at least if one starts at little bit too optimistic pace...

I'm seriously considering participating. I ran in Halden last time and it was nice format for a race. I think this one will be even more interesting with more challenging route and possibly very wet and difficult conditions.

In finnish discussion there was some interest to use this interval format for a finnish race also, but that was very preliminary and just a group training run will be more likely (at least for the first time).

BTW: I'm registered as "Mikko" in Kondis.no forum, but I don't write so much due to my limited norwegian skills.

It is very good to hear you are considering to participate! If you come to Malm, you'll get a completely different experience than what you had in Halden, I am sure of it. While the course in Halden is quite easy and fast, we have a very challenging course that really is going to drain you of energy.

It's also funny that you in Finland allows you get inspired by Halden and Malm Ultra interval. It had been fun to see even more the version of ultra races after the interval concept, which I'm particularly fascinated by. There are many possibilities to vary the length of rounds, number of rounds, length of pauses, surface, track profile, etc.

You are welcome to tell about Malm Ultraintervall to all of your ultra-friends that you think may be interested in participating. We hope to have many ambitious runners at the start line!

Tulokset

Onnittelut M.BoneS:ille hienosta kolmannesta sijasta. Kierroajoista päätellen kuudes kierros on ollut varsin ikimuistoinen?

Näyttää olevan nuorten laji tuo ultraintervalli. Kärkikaksikko on syntynyt v. 1989 ja mukana on ollut useita 1990-luvulla syntyneitä juoksijoita. Naisten kilpailun kaikki osanottajat, kahta 60-lukulaista lukuunottamatta, ovat syntyneet 1990-luvulla.

Mahtava reitti, mutta huono kunto.

Juuri sellaista oikeaa maastojuoksua, jota on maastojuoksuun kaipailtu. Maantietä vain lyhyt pätkä alussa ja vähän pidempi pätkä lopussa. Suota paljon, ehkä lähes puolet. Monin paikoin ei ollenkaan polkuja, vaan pelkät reittimerkinnät soiden poikki.

Liian kovaa juoksin ekoilla kierroksilla, mutta oli niin kivaa etten jaksanut välittää asiasta. Varsinkin suo-alamäet on hulvattoman hauskoja rallatella kovaa. Viimeisillä kierroksilla olin melko lopussa ja lisäksi velliperse.

Runsaslukuinen nuoriso oli pääasiassa hiihtäjiä. Lienee melko tavanomaista kesäkauden harjoittelua heille tuollaiset suojuoksentelut, joten ei mikään ihme ettei tälläiset vanhat koukkupolviset ultra-ukot pärjää. Viidennellä kierroksella hieman hämmennyin, kun naisten sarjaa hallinnut 17 vuotias tyttö juoksi vastaansanomattomasti ohi, mutta jälkeenpäin kuulin että hän on kv-tasollakin ihan kivasti menestynyt juniorihiihtäjätär, joten eipä ihme sekään.

Suosittelen varsinkin suon ystäville. Vähän turhan vaikeasti matkustettavassa paikassa tuo toki juostaan.
