Ida Nilsson needs no introduction with a host of winning performances at some of the world’s most revered mountain ultras! The Swedish athlete had an outstanding 2018 season including her 3rd (straight) victory at Transvulcania (73km), a win at Maratòn Alpina Zegama-Aizkorri (42km) & a second place in the Golden Trail Series. She had her first taste of stage racing at the 2019 Coastal Challenge where she set a new course record and placed 2nd overall. Learn something more about Ida in this great in-depth profile from iRunFar.
In 2018 Ida also co-founded Moonvalley, along with fellow Salomon athletes Emelie Forsberg & Mimi Kotka, to produce organic goodies – real food, real tasty, real nutritious. Thanks to our sponsor MyRaceKit we will have Moonvalley bars at UTMR.
Ida we are happy to welcome you (and Moonvalley) to UTMR! We wish you the best of luck!
“I have heard so many times that the area around Monte Rosa is incredible. Several people have told me, you have to go running there! Earlier this year I got introduced to stage racing at the Coastal Challenge and I really liked it. I’m not ready to take on the 100 miles distance in one run yet so the 4 days stage format is perfect. It’s still long running days, but more time to recover and really enjoy the beauty of each day.
I’m also very happy that the race will use Moonvalley products, the brand I started together with Emelie Forsberg and Mimmi Kotka. We are so happy with the final result and it will be interesting to hear what the other runners think of the products!”
