Along the way on the bus and at the starting area, the participants are each given their own start number which is equipped with their own chip. On this start number, the telephone number of the race director is also noted, if it is desired to get in touch with the person in question.
We have created our own information map where the entire trail is drawn. It will be put up for sale at Platou Sport before the summer, at a cost of NOK 100.
In addition, you will find the map here on the homepage, see the trail description. (Norwegian only)
The footwear is the most important; Use what you usually use while hiking. Everything from sneakers to mountain boots can be used only if it is well entered and does not gnaw. Bring Compeed into your backpack for your safety and comfort.
You must wear wind and waterproof outerwear, warm cloth change in the backpack. Certainly hat and gloves as well.
Maps and compass are important. We distribute (so far the supply lasts) whistles at the start to those who dont already have this.
A simple rescue blanket (80 grams) is a reasonable insurance for yourself and for others.
We also recommend a headlamp if you think you want to spend a long time on the trip.
There will be control of the bag at the start. The organizers have the right to refuse you to start if they believe you do not have sufficient equipment in relation to expected weather conditions.
Unfortunately, there is no organized transport of equipment from start to finish.
FOOD AND DRINK
Nutritious drinks are important to consume during the race. Normally you find natural water in the terrain along the way, can be mixed with sports powder.
You get sports drinks and snacks at the checkpoint at Unneland, which is after the descent from Livarden.
