Here we go!
Salomon Xreid Jotunheimen is organized by Xreid Norway. Our goal is to create races that gives our participants strong and lasting experiences. To achieve that, we have a unique crew that makes this race possible.
We do not focus on course records and we aim to have new exiting additions every year, that be a new location or nice add-ons to prior races.
To race in remote locations puts great responsibility on both participants and us as a organizer. Keeping our participants safe throughout the course is our main concern.
Registration will be hosted at HQ in Beitostølen. The opening hours are Thursday June 28th 18:00 – 20:45. Pre race meeting starts 21:00 at the same venue.
All participants will be given three special need bags at the registration. These bags will be transported by the organisers to CP1 Vetti gard (30k), CP2 Tyinholmen (53k) and CP3 Bygdinvegen (99k).
Sections of the route will follow official trails marked by The Norwegian Trekking Association (DNT), but there will also be some short sections without established trails. Thus, you must be prepared to navigate using your GPS or map.
Route with waypoints for the GPS must be downloaded from our website and installed on your GPS device.
This years route pass through several weather exposed areas. Your safety is our primary concern, and the route is subject to change before and/or during the race at the organisers discretion.
You will find garbage deposits at all check points. If you are caught littering, you will be disqualified.
We advise that you book accommodation as soon as possible as Beitostølen is a popular destination and base for tourist. The race will count as a qualifier race for UTMB.
