About Salomon Rondane100

Start and finish in the old mining village Folldal. A small mountain village framed by the majestic Rondane Mountains, the mountains of Dovre and Alvdal Vestfjell. One of the coldest places in Northern-Europe. 700 meters above sea level.

 

Hardy people that has persisted through working the mines, the farmlands and hunting. A perfect location for a true ultratrail run.

 

 We have used our own ultra trailrun experiences and added them to the trails in our own beautiful backyard. We want to create a race by - and for ultrarunners as a tribute to stunning nature and majestic mountains, to trail running and to the ultrarunning culture.

 

Experience the mining-community, 2000 meter summits, traces from the last ice-age and old hunting cultures. Experience the land of the wild reindeer, the national park and the mountain flora. Experience the community of ultra runners. 

 

This is a long and tough race, but if you meet the mountains with humility, the distance with respect and your co-runners with compassion you will have an experience for life.

Route Description
100 miles

Route may be changed due to pending permissions:

The race begins and ends at Folldal flerbrukshus which is at 700 masl. From start, you will follow trails climbing north till you reach Storhøa at 1605 masl and the stunning view of Dovrefjell, Rondane, Alvdal Vestfjell and the Knutshøa plateau. If you keep your eyes open, you might spot a herd of wild reindeer. One of the last wild reindeer strains in Europe live in this area.  

 

The next part of the race follows easy trails down to the valley, crosses the Folla river, and continues up to Nygruva. Nygruva is an old mine, and the only remaining mine building is at this location. It is today used by the local trekking association to serve coffee and fresh waffles to xc skiers.

 

You continue into grouse territory and climb a small peak at 1147 masl called Streitkampen. Now it’s time to  enter Rondane. You will follow the dirt road that goes through the seter Valley Grimsdalen a few kilometers until you reach Grimsdalshytta. From Grimsdalshytta, you’ll continue on trails east of Gravhøa and through Stygghøan by the mountain pass Dørålsglupen. This trail will take you to Dørålseter, one of the most popular starting points for trekking in Rondane.

 

From Rondane, the race follows the DNT-trail through Bergedalen and up to Rondhalsen. This landscape is formed by the last ice age and you can see traces of old hunting cultures. You will also experience the mystical Rondvatnet. From Rondvassbu, the race follows rocky trails through Illmanndalen to Bjørnhollia. Bjørnhollia translates roughly to "Bear Valley" but you are far more likely to see raptors such as raves and eagles than a bear. From Bjørnhollia, stairs built by sherpas will take you up the east side of Myldingsgjeldet and to trails leading into Myldingi and Atnasjømyrene nature reserves. The special marshlands here inhabits a wide variety of wild birds.  

The route crosses road 27 and enters into Alvdal Vestfjell. You will climb about 700 meters on your way to Breisjøseter, with the Sølnkletten, the star of Alvdal Vestfjell, in front of you. At Breisjøseter, you will take the trail that follows Breisjøen "the wide lake" at its east side. If you’re running low on energy, you can refill with cloudberries that grow in large quantities in this area.

 

From Flatsetra, you’ll find a nice and easy trail heading north and passing Bjønnsetra og Raudkletten to Grimsbu. Then follows four kilometers on dirt roads and the two only kilometers of the race that goes on asphalt. The last 11 kilometers of the race follows the old Malmvegen, where ore from the mines was transported on a long cableway in earlier days. This is the same pathway used for the short(er) distance race Malmvegen minneløp in late July.

Start is at Dørålseter Tourist Cabin. Run alongside the river and then head towards Skranglehaugan. After passing Skranglehaugan, you will enter Bergsdalen on the path towards Bjørnhollia.

Bjørnhollia translates roughly to "Bear Valley" but you are far more likely to see raptors such as ravens and eagles than a bear.
