150k race TRACK

DATES: 10.-12.02.2023

 

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

The race starts and finishes in Rovaniemi and runs through the wilderness around the city.

 

The 150k track is a mixture of trails, forest roads and roads. The track also traverse a frozen river and a couple of frozen lakes. The trail is partially signed, so participants needs to use the GPS. There are eigth (8) mandatory checkpoints. 

  • At the checkpoints racers will find a camp fire, water and basic shelter. Except in Sinettäjärvi checkpoint (no shelter, no campfire).

Days before the race starts, all trails are previously tracked and pressed by snowmobile as good as possible to facilitate the passage. The final result is as good as the weather let it. That means that in good conditions racers will find the track hard and mostly smoth, but this not always happen. Even not all sections have the same conditions.

As an exemple, in 2012 the fatbike winner spend 31 h. 45 min. while in 2017 the fatbike winner did it in 10 h. 24 min.
