150 kilometers ultramarathon. Maximum time to complete: 38 hours.

 

 

The 150k race is a partially signed track. Participants needs to use a GPS. The 150k track have mandatory checkpoints to follow. Once the participant arrives to the mandatory checkpoint must sign-in and sign-out in a piece of paper she/he will find in the checkpoint.

 

Anyone who doesn't know how to use a GPS, the GPS software, read and understand a map or don't know about orientation, should not register in this race.

 

 

To participate in the 150k race is not necessary to have experience in other winter races, but participants must have experience in marathons, long distances races, long distance traverses or winter mountain traverses. It is also strongly recommended that you have experience in winter bivouacs.

 

We understand that anybody who intends to participate in this kind of race without previous winter experience must have the common sense to get good information about everything needed for a competition like this one.

 

At the checkpoints, except Sinettäjärvi checkpoint (the second), racers will find a camp fire, basic shelter and water.

 

Racers must be self-sufficient and have the ability to take care of themselves. This race is a potentially dangerous one, participants have to really seriously consider if they are physically and mentally prepared for this kind of race.
