Bomarsund Trailrun 5.8.2017!
Imagine August 1854 when the Bomarsund period came to an abrupt end. After Russian forces for over two decades had worked to build Bomarsund fortifications everything was destroyed in a few days at a English- French attack.
Let the race take you to areas including those that Lieutenant Zvendjeff at Notvikstornet and towercommandant Tesche at Brännklintstornet tried to defend with their troops. Run along the same paths that medical staff used to take the injured to hospital, as the messengers took to convey messages to the fortress commandant Bodisco and used at funerals to bring their men to his final resting place.
Third edition of Bomarsund Trailrun will be arranged on Saturday 5.8.2017
Bomarsund Trailrun offers two different railway routes – LONG approx. 12km and SHORT approx. 4,5 km.
Bomarsund Open Water Challenge is arranged the same day, by Ålands Simförening. Start times are adapted so that you can participate in both races!
