Heidi Weng did not have a competitor who’d come close to her in 44 km long classical competition Flyktningerennet - the Refugee race. Weng built up a lead to the final +6:39 in the finish on the runner up Kari Vighagen Gjeitnes and won the race in 2:06:04. Sweden’s Ida Ingemarsdotter took third place +8:16 back. “- It was a great fun to ski. I have never done so long competition. I went with Ole Marius Bach and got a great ride with him,” Weng said  after the race. 

Niklas Dyrhaug crushed the men’s field to win in 1:57:02 almost one minute and a half over Petter Northug jr. Johan Kjølstad took third place +01:25 behind. “It’s damn good to win the Refugee race,” Dyrhaug said.
