Course description

Tromsø Skyrace at 69 degrees North takes you on an arctic trip from the city of Tromsø to the most scenic wilderness area. The first ascent is over Tromsdalstind mountain, down a wild valley crossing rivers and up to the very technical Hamperokken ridge.

An exposed and sometimes narrow ridge leads to the summit of Hamperrokken at 1,404m altitude. A technical downhill to an alpine lake is followed by a wild open valley leading back to the last big climb up Tromsdalstind. The final section of the race includes another technical downhill and a smooth trail to finish back to an enthusiastic welcome in Tromsø.

An extra 20% points are awarded in this race for the ranking
