New Swedish women's 100 mile run record

Elisabeth Karlsson (28) finished second overall and set a new Swedish record 23:13:55 for women's 100 mile (161 km) run.

She participated in TEC (Täby Extreme Challenge) 100/75/50/25 mile race last weekend in Täby, a suburb in northern Stockholm.

Due to icy conditions the original complex course plan was replaced with a simple flat 10 km loop. The weather was not too bad considering it was still winter. Temperatures ranged from moderate (day) to cold (night).

Kent Sjölund won the 100 mile competition with 20:17:49.
