As part of creating sustainable events in the mountains, Tjejmilen Sälen has donated SEK 20,000 to Destination Sälenfjällen. The money will be used in full to renovate and develop mountain trails, which will both protect and make the mountain environment accessible.

– It is important that we are jointly responsible for making as small a footprint as possible in the mountain environment where Tjejmilen is organized, with the lead grant, destination Sälenfjällen can continue the work with poles on the mountain that reduce the wear and tear on nature. In addition to the contribution, we work actively to minimize the wear on the mountain by, for example, encouraging all participants to carry their own liquid during the competition so we can minimize the number of liquid stations. We also transport all the materials required along the course on foot or by electric bike, says Lotta Lindblom, Event Manager at Marathongruppen.

– For several years we have worked with the local industry to make mountain nature more accessible by building footbridges on popular trails. We see very positive effects on the trails where we have supplemented with footbridges in the form of increased use and less wear and tear on the ground. It is gratifying that events such as Tjejmilen Sälen contribute to both protecting and making mountain nature in Sälenfjällen accessible, says Anders Bjernulf, CEO of Destination Sälenfjällen.

– For us, local anchoring is important, we have a continuous dialog with the landowner association in Sälen linked to events to work both long-term and sustainable. We also aim to work with local associations at events that can volunteer as officials and where the compensation goes back to the association’s children and youth activities,” says Fredrik Rydén, Concept and Event Manager at SkiStar.

Tjejmilen Sälen is organized by Marathongruppen and SkiStar. The goal of Tjejmilen Sälen is to inspire the joy of movement by offering a challenge in a magnificent and inspiring mountain environment. Tjejmilen Sälen is an enjoyable weekend with the joy of movement, relaxation and community in focus, an outdoor experience to remember!
