TRACK -300k race

300k DATES:10.-16.02.2023

 

300 kilometers ultramarathon. Maximum time to complete it: 5 days.

THE 300k RACE HAVE TWO VERY DIFFERENT SECTIONS:

 

First section of the track is the same as 150k race. The 150k race is a partially signed track, so participants needs to use a GPS.

 

All mandatory waypoints in this first section match with the 150k race checkpoints (8). Most of this checkpoints have water, shelter and firewood, also have a limit time, so if you arrive when checkpoint is closed maybe you wouldn't find the tent but you can use the wood (if still some) if you want to do a fire. In this first section, organisation work on track during the previous days to leave it in the best possible conditions.

 

Second section is quite different and it follows an official snowmobile track. There are signs, in some areas more than others. In some areas you could find very good snow conditions and in others maybe you could find deep snow and also you could find other snowmobiles tracks crossing the official snowmobile track, so those tracks could confuse the right way... Track conditions depends on how long ago snowed and when the last snowmobile went through there.
