have experience in marathons or winter mountain traverses.
We understand that anybody who intends to participate in this kind of race without previous winter experience must have the common sense to get good information about all the needs to face a competition like this one.
The race starts and finishes in Rovaniemi and runs through the wilderness around the city.
The all track is a mixture of b-class roads, single lane roads, trails, snowmobile tracks and also runs through a frozen river and a lake.
There is a marked route and mandatory checkpoints. The trail is marked with stakes, plastic ribbon and reflective tape.
A few days before the race starts, all trails will be previously tracked by snowmobile to facilitate the passage.
Participants have to carry their own food and water. Participants can cook and melt snow in checkpoints but fire place is not so big so could be necessary to wait your turn except if you carry your stove.
At the checkpoints, racers will find:
1- Porohovi 1: basic shelter, camp fire and water.
2- Sinettärvi: nothing but the control.
3- Mellavaara: basic shelter and camp fire.
