Described by the organisers as the adventure of a lifetime, the new Salomon Xreid is bigger and better in 2016. Located north of the Arctic Circle, on the scenic island of Senja, in Norway, the race offers 250 ultra runners the chance to run the 122km trail route under the midnight sun.
The total ascent for this ultra marathon experience is 5,500 metres and the trail route includes plateaus, valleys, fjords, rivers, green mountains and beaches.
This fourth edition of the Salomon Xreid ultra will have three checkpoints at Kaperfossen (44km), CP2 Helvetesfoss (84 k) and CP3 Ersfjord (108 k).
