Trail description

The trail starts at Fjordgård Samfunnshus. And you run on a good path up on the instagram mountain, Segla.

Then there is a slight descent towards Heia. The descent is steep and has some rocks, so it can be an advantage to take it easy here. Then you follow the trail away and up to Barden.

At Barden it is flat and easy to run. The descent from Barden to Daven can be a bit of a challenging descent. After Daven comes the longest and perhaps steepest climb of the race. This climb takes you up to Grytetippen, if the weather is good you should take the time to be photographed before you run on to Keipen. It is a short distance to Keipen. Downwards from Keipen you are going out on snow, over on the ridge to Skarelvfjellet. These are the fastest parts of the trail

 

At the eastern end of Skarelvfjellet, the trail turns north, down Keipelven. After a short and steep climb you are up on Tarbergkollen and you can notice you are approaching Husøy, since you see the Ørnfjord. The last descent from Tarbergkollen is on snow, If you think it is too steep, it is possible to run on the side. Down from snow part, the route carries over the national road and out towards Riven. Riven is the last peak. From here it is a quick descent towards Husa, and you follow the road into Husøy and the finish line.
