50 MILES, 1 500 M ACCUMULATED ASCENT

Our course is a diverse experience, including everything from huge cliffs to narrow forest trails. The course follows the ocean and you will see old fisherman’s villages, heaths, canyons and a huge amount of red-colored granite rocks.

The race starts at the beautiful island Bohus-Malmön, a place with an interesting stonemasonry history, with reminders such as the old quarries and stone remnants. The coastal trail here takes us around the island and you will pass nice beaches with smooth granite slabs. After a 12K loop around the island, you will get to the ferry which will take you back to the mainland while you enjoy some refreshments. During the ferry break, timekeeping will of course be stopped.

At the mainland awaits a quite hilly track with a wide range of scenery. You will pass slippery rocks, verdant forests and winding gravel roads. After 31K, you will arrive at the beautiful village of Kungshamn Kungshamn, where you enjoy cinnamon buns and raw food bars at our energy stations.

Next up is a few kilometers of asphalt before you reach the famous pier in Smögen, where you will meet some late-summer tourist while you run by small shops and restaurants.

From here awaits single tracks passing mountains and forests for 10 kilometers, before you reach the nature reserve Ramsvikslandet at 48K. Ramsvikslandet is a unique place, full of red-colored granite slabs and traces from the ancient ice sheet with giant kettles and ice slides. Enjoy 16 kilometers of world class-trails, and then get ready for the final part.

The last part will follow the overwhelming, hand-dug Sote Channel, and will then take you through a hilly terrain with magnificent views. The last energy station is located at a stonemasonry museum with only ten kilometers left. Here awaits the final challenges – you need to beat two mountains before you can enjoy the downhill kilometers that will finish the race.

Soon, you’ll see the picturesque port of Hunnebostrand, where the finish line is located. You will get some food and drinks here, to enjoy while you wait for the buses that will take you to Bohus-Malmön for the well-deserved banquet.
