The annual broom race passing over a Swedish Short-Snout at the Swedish dragon reservation

The annual broom race was held in Sweden and had been contested since the tenth century. Entrants raced a course of 437 miles from Kopparberg to Arjeplog. The course ran through a Swedish Short-Snout dragon reservation, and the enormous silver trophy was in the shape of Swedish Short-Snout. Currently, it is an international event, with wizards and witches from all over the world attending, seeing off the competitors at Kopparberg, then apparating to Arjeplog to welcome the survivors.[1]
