Below is all information you need to know about Icebug Xperience Mountain Trail.
If you’re having any question that isn’t answered below, please send us an email at ix@icebug.se!

How you cover the 70 kilometers during the three days at Icebug Xperience Mountain Trail is up to you.

The race is divided into three different categories. You can enter the walking group if you want some extra time to enjoy the sceneries, the running group if you want to experience some world-class trail running, or the run/walk group if you want to walk some parts and run some parts.

You can change your chosen group during Icebug Xperience; you can join the walking group one day and join the run/walk group next day.

If you have to step out of the race at one of the stages, you can still do the next stage, but without having your name in the “final results”

If you are aiming to place yourself at “top 50 runners” (men/women) you need to start all of  the stages at the Running Group!

Our starting fee is 1 800 SEK. This includes shuttle busses from the finish line to the start every day, and a delicious lunch served at the finish line each day. The starting fee also includes a fold-a-cup from Wildo, a merino wool tee from Aclima and a medal.
