The Long Distance Ski Championship

SEASON IX EVENT 11

Event: Reistadløpet
Date: 6th April 2019
Distance: 50km
Location: Setermoen-Bardufoss, Norway.

“Pure Arctic Madness is the motto of this far northern event, held above the arctic circle in the Norwegian provinces of Bardu and Målselv. The race is Season IX, part of the tour for the third time, and is becoming well known for its amazing mountainous nature but also for the steep and demanding uphill to the climb of Orta, making even super strong skiers put gripwax under the skis. The event is also the 3rdstage in the Visma Nordic Trophy competition.Wintertime this arctic area shows off spectacular Aurora Borealis, summertime the midnight sun always shines. Reistadløpet is an event worth a complete journey, and it´s participants will for sure return time after time!”
