The courses are marked with tape and signs in the terrain. The paths on the mountain are sometimes stony and boards are placed over some wet parts, these might be slippery if it's raining. Be careful!
FOLLOW YOUR ANIMAL
Each distance is symbolized by an animal, present in the local fauna. 45K – the Reindeer, 28K – the Bear and 12K – the Wolf. The kilometer signs are marked with your animal. Where the courses are splitting up, there are signs with your animal and distance to make sure you run the right way.
Already early in the race, it's important to get energy and water. At our energy stations, you find the energy you need to keep running over the mountain. On all stations you find sports drinks and water. Bananas, buns, pickles and coffee are other good stuff to keep you going. Feel free to fill up your backpack so that you'll make it to the next station. Also in the finish you will find drinks and things to eat.
For you own safety, you have to pass each energy station before a certain time. After passing the last station, Chocken, in the right time, you are free to continue towards the finish – it won't close until everybody is back home again! The exact maximum times are published later.
