    Gustavia Loppet 2016

    I will be down on the island making my 40th visit from November 7-15th and want to mark the occasion by running the Gustavia Loppet Race on Sunday, November 13th.

    Does anyone now how one can register for the race online?

    Send an email to the Swedish Association in St Barth that organizes the race...asbas1978@gmail.com

    not sure you can sign up on line but you can when you get to the island. I'd bring a medical certificate and membership card if you belong to a runner's club

    We did the race last year, and just went to the Collective in Gustavia to sign up; a few days ahead. It was a fun day, enjoy!
    Life may not be the party we hoped for, but while we're here we should dance !

    Henry, I will be with the walkers again this year! I will wave when I go by the le repaire. I could never run, not even in high school. I am training right now, I walked from the mini mart in lorient this morning all the way to flamands. I took side roads as I do not like the normal route, too much traffic. I went to the left at the round about towards the clinic, down the hill and made a right past ccpf, then up the hill via corrosol and finally to flamands.


    it took me 2 hours 10 minutes........yikes. 3 bottles of water.

    Those hills are killers for sure, Diana! Just discovered we will be there during the race, so I may do the walk with my daughter , and my sons girlfriend....my son is thinking of doing the 10K....but it's up in the air, as it will only be the second day after their arrival; and as I recall, the race starts early am......and they will be used to western time zone!
