Race schedule

Björkliden is located in Swedish Lapland, 200 km north of the arctic circle and is an area of pristine natural beauty.

The race is 114 or 57 km long with 6,000 or 3,000 meter vertical climb. One or two laps on a challenging, brutal and demanding trail. Finally a race in Sweden that rivals international mountain races. One difference is that you can drink all the water in the streams without worry in the Swedish mountains.

The limit of participants this year is 300 trail blazers (150 teams ). The age limit is 18 years of age.
