I also set the record for the longest time taken to complete a single lap of the Gula Stigen.

The previous record was 17-18 minutes last winter.

It was an impressive show. The entire crowd were on hand hours before the start. Even more Impressive- all the spectators stayed the entire 22 hours and 54 minutes required. to complete the 30 laps.

Who is claiming the record? And what was their time?

GHOSLO:
I am not going to diss that claim for the SKT record but the rumor is that it was snowshoe assisted.

Well, that is a little suspect. I wonder if doping was involved as well - a glass or two of wine maybe.

The Gula Stigen SKT must have been between 17.5 and 22.5 minutes since I round to nearest 5 minutes for my training and back in December I did this workout on the Gula Stigen on snowshoes.

Plan was to get the trail track set for the Xmas holidays. I remember it being about 18 minutes to do one loop on snowshoes. It was a tough slog except for the driveway that was plowed.

You logged that as a "toodle". So it sounds like you have the Slowest Known Toodle, anyway.

Never seen ghoslow toodle. The record is likely safe.

Gula Stigen has 30m of climb.
