We are well underway with planning our event for next year. The date of Styrkeprøven will be the weekend of the 14th. – 16. June. We welcome all new and old participants to the Styrkeprøven tour race for the 57th. time in 2024!
In recent years, we have had challenges with regard to getting the event approved by the road authorities. We understand very well that it has been frustrating and difficult for many of our participants when only a short time before the start it is still very uncertain whether the race can be organised. In addition, these challenges have taken energy and resources from us as organizers and have not contributed to us being able to focus more on our participants. We have therefore learned from this and we have now started a process with the road authorities to get better communication, interaction and understanding of each other’s wishes and challenges. As early as September, the road authorities and Styrkeprøven will meet to discuss the way forward.
We are sure that Styrkeprøven will be carried out on the 14th. – 16. June 2024, but it is likely that we will have to make some changes to both where the route goes, the target area and other aspects of the implementation itself. We have already planned a new route for Trondheim-Oslo, which we believe better takes into account the challenges the road authorities have had in approving the route in recent years. We therefore hope that the application process to the road authorities can become simpler and hopefully much faster.
Therefore, our call to everyone is now: Start training for Styrkeprøven 2024 already today! Good training and good luck!
