CHANGE OF NAME OR DISTANCE
You make changes yourself in the entry system. Changes can be made until August 23, 2023. A name change costs SEK 100. When changing distance, you pay any difference in entry fees that applies at the current date. No money will be refunded when changing to a shorter distance.
The courses are marked with tape and signs in the terrain. Be observant when the courses split, so that you take the right way. 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!
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, water and something to eat. Feel free to fill up your backpack so that you'll make it to the next station.
A good idea is to bring your own cup to use at the energy stations, that means less paper mugs used, they are recycleable – but still.
Use hand disinfection before taking anything from the energy station, the same goes for the finish.
For you own safety, you have to pass each energy station before a certain time. After passing energy station Chocken, in the right time, you are free to continue towards the finish – it won't close until everybody is back home again!

HOW TO BEHAVE IN NATURE
We are running in the coutry of the reindeer, and we show the greatest consideration for animals and nature. It is by law forbidden to disturb or try to get close to a reindeer, if they are standing in your way on the path – take a detour, it won't cost you so much time.
Please observe that in order to protect the nature, shoes with metal spikes are not allowed. Stay on the path in order not to broaden it.
...along the course is totally forbidden and leads to immediate disqualification. There are trash bags at the energy stations. Remember to dispose of the trash correctly – the mugs are recycleable as paper packages and shall be thrown in the bags marked ”Muggar”.
IF YOU'VE HAD ENOUGH
In case you have to give up the race, please inform the personnel at the Race Office. This is important, if we don't know that you are in the sauna with a beer, we might start searching for you on the mountain.
FIRST AID/MEDICAL ASSISTANCE
All energy stations are equipped with first aid kits. You find a doctor and medical assistance at the arena at Idre Fjäll. On your number bib, you find an emergency phone number to use if you need help. In case of a true emergency – always call 112 directly.
