This year Lofoten Ultra-Trail relay race is taking place as usual on week 22 – the very beginning of June, wonderful time to enjoy never-ending light of midnight sun inside the Arctic Circle.
Lofoten Ultra-Trail relay race in Norway is a great way to experience beautiful islands of Norwegian archipelago Lofoten, from west – with a start point in spectacular Kirkefjorden – to east, finishing in Svolvaer. There are 10 runners in a team, who will have to complete a well-marked course of 165 kilometers, with a total elevation of over 7000 meters. Ten relay stages vary in terms of length (from 9 to 22 kilometers) and flatness.
There is also the 80-kilometer long version of Lofoten Ultra-Trail relay race, which is going to be available: 10 runners in a team will cover the full distance in 10 stages (with a shorter range between 5 and 15 kilometers), finishing in the same place of Svolvaer.
