Welcome to Elitloppet 2017!
This event will take place between may 26th and 28th 2017. The winner is decided through two qualifying rounds and a subsequent final on Sunday May 28th. The competition is regarded as one of the most prestigious international events in trotting and it is an annual event that has been taken place since 1952. The best horses in the world are invited, and both the eliminations and the final are raced over a mile (1609 meters).
Elitloppet is traditionally raced on the last Sunday of May. Solvalla Racetrack holds races both Saturday and Sunday which makes up a meet, known in Sweden as "The Elitloppet weekend". The two days are generally well-visited and is considered one of Sweden's biggest sports events. A total of over 50,000 people attend the events at Solvalla. Having experienced this ”trotting meet” once, you always want to come back.
