Drop bags:

Available both at Dørålseter (for 100 milers) and at Strømbu (for all participants). The bags will be organized based on start bib numbers, in order for you to identify your bag without touching other runners’ bags. Grab your bag, pick up what you need, and leave the bag in the designated drop zone. 

 

Poles:

You can put poles in your drop bag, given that your poles are small enough to fit the bag.

 

Mandatory equipment:

Everything listed as mandatory equipment is mandatory. For all runners on both distances. Some of you might think the list is too long, but many participants will be running long hours in the dark, on technical mountain trails, with the potential of freezing temperatures and hard wind. If some of you have an injury in the remote part of the mountains, the wait for evacuation might take hours. The list includes the minimum of clothes and equipment you need, and we strongly recommend you bring clothes that provide good isolation. We encourage everyone to show sportsmanship, but might run random checks before start and/or after finish.

Will I find water along the course?

There are several water sources along the course. There’s always the potential of contamination of smaller water sources (due to sheep and other animals), so officially we can only recommend the larger creeks and rivers.  

 

Start - CP Nygruva:

River Folla, 27 km after start. Fill water before or immediately after you cross the bridge.

 

CP Nygruva - CP Dørålseter:

River Grimsa, 55 km after start
