there are many hotels, B&Bs and camping options nearby.

We live in the land of the midnight sun!
You don't need lights, even in the darkest part of the night.
We've seen it all, from snowing to +30 C, and some years in the same 24 hours.
Be prepared for everything.
Yes. We provide some food but you should bring enough food and water for 24 hours.
Please, NO DOGS. Not at the race, campsites or parking lot.
We encourage staying up all night! If you do need to grab some sleep there is plenty of tent space,
both quiet and noisy, as well as RV parking.
Our course varies from year to year, but one lap is normally between 12–15 km. Most riders complete a lap in 45-60 minutes.
It always includes a mix of flowy singletrack and wider ski trails
to make passing easier, especially on the climbs. It is a blast for beginners and experts alike!
Sorry, no. We don't finalize the course until shortly before the race.

On race day we normally need help with timing, course marking, logistics, set up and take down and FUN! Before the race there is
a lot of planning and organizing, collecting prizes, preparing race packages, trail work... If you have a special talent, skill or
interest we can accomodate that as well!
