Buud takes on TEC 100 mile challenge today

Originally Scandinavia's shining ultrarunning star Jonas Buud planned to run a marathon in North Korea in April. When it became obvious that it's not going to happen, he came up with plan B: to find out if it was possible to run TEC (Täby Extrem Challenge) 100 miles in North Stockholm instead.

TEC has a strict limit for the number of participants they can accommodate, and they had a waiting list. However there had apparently been many unexpected cancellations due to injuries, and Jonas got in at the last minute.

The start is 10AM today. Last year the winner took 20 hours 17 minutes. Super-Buud might easily finish in closer to 15 than 20 hours. The results will eventually be published here.
