Trailmarathon plus in Noorwegen. Het is net geen ronde van Eidfjord naar Øvre Eidfjord. De meeste hoogtemeters zitten in de eerste 10 km als je van zeeniveau naar een hoogte van bijna 1200 meter loopt.
42 195 meters with running in the mountains. Trails, river crossings and running in narrow valleys around Eidfjord. Of course you will run close to the Hardangerjøkulen glacier, Vøringsfossen waterfall and on the Hardangervidda. Also a half distance, with the finishline right next to the Vøringsfossen waterfall.
The race starts in Eidfjord then goes through the beautiful valley called Simadalen. The start is easy with 9km of flat tarmac. Then starts the brutal 6 k uphill. It takes you 1200 vertical meters above the fjord and sea level. The terrain is steep and muddyl. As you approach to the top of this hill you will see the Hardangerjøkulen glacier on your left hand side. At the plateau, the terrain is swampy and there's a trail. After a few kilometers on the plateau, you will pass a small and nice mountain farm.
The terrain towards Fossli/Vøringsfossen (21 k) is quite easy but very slippery. Take it easy in this section. At Vøringsfossen half distance runners reach their finishline. Full distance runners have a foodstation where you also can have access to your "special needs bag". You will meet friendly crew and this is a great place to fill up the backpack with the food and fresh water. After a short section of asphalt, a long hard climb waits for uou. This section is experienced by many previous participants as the heaviest part of this race. This terrain absorbs power out of your legs and life will again feels meaningful. Save your energy and motivation for this section.
After a few kilometers in the swamp, the terrain will be progressively easier, the last few kilometers to the food station at Hjølmodalen (34 km) is flat. The downhill-run in Hjølmodalen will increase your knowledge about anatomy, if you are not aware that there are muscles on the front of the thigh, you will be aware that there are muscles there too.
After 6 km of downhill running you will be back on asphalt for the sprint to the finishline in Øvre Eidfjord. (small village)
