For the first time in it's 90 year history all competitions during the Vasaloppet Winter Week in 2014 will be completely full. Although space remains in the week long event for children up to the age of 16 yrs old, the 2014 Vasaloppet has set two new records. The first being the registration of 66,800 competitors, and second that all available slots are full.  

"We are proud to be able to engage this many people and to contribute to the health benefits that this level of participation creates. We know that our participants on average practice three hours a week in the final months before the competitions, and at the same time it is becoming more common to do these workouts as a social activity. With a little math, it provides a dizzying view of the popular movement the Vasaloppet has become," says Vasaloppet's CEO Anders Selling.
