Preparing for the race - free 21 week training plan!

For those athletes that are a bit unsure of how to prepare for the race, we have built a full training program that includes running and strength training. The program is based on our own experiences preparing for similar events, and if followed one should have a great basis for a good result and a good experience when participating. The program starts Jan 11th 2021 and ends on race day June 12th 2021. Enjoy!

 

  

 

 

 

 

The route

The route starts and ends at Nøsen and makes a 100 km circle in the area which offers a very varied terrain. South of Nøsen is fairly flat compared to the hilly north, which is the entrance to the Hemsedal mountain ranges to the west and Jotunheimen to the North east. This will also make for some epic views and beautiful scenery. The surface is 1/3 trails, 1/3 gravel road, and 1/3 mountain trail and elevation decent/accent is approximately 3250 m.   

 

The final route will be published well in advance of the race in a GPX format.

The 1st leg goes through rolling terrain through and epic scenery with some gravel roads, nice trails and the first mountain climb to Grønsengnippa (1368 masl). After 42 km the athlete will reach Syndinstøga where they can refuel and get access to their CP1 drop-bag. 

After climbs up Kruk (1582 masl)  and Pigghaug (1190 masl) and 33 km, the athlete will reach the last and final CP at 73 km. From there, the athlete will approach the final climb up to Gråskarvet (1731 masl) and decent to some nice lakeside trails and the final gravel road to the finish line at Nøsen where refreshments and intense feelings of mastery awaits.

Navigation

 

The route is not marked physically, apart from the permanent markings along the paths. Each athlete must navigate such that the route is followed. As navigation aids, each athlete must bring a handhold GPS-unit (a watch-type is allowed) and a physical compass.
