50 MILES, 1 500 M ACCUMULATED ASCENT

The race starts on the beautiful island of Bohus-Malmön with an interesting stonemasonry history. Here you will run a 12-kilometer loop on a coastal trail, passing by amazing beaches and smooth granite slabs.

To get to the mainland, you will need to take the ferry. Of course, the timekeeping is stopped until you get off the ferry and while waiting for it to pick you up. In Tullboden you will get your first refreshments and the timing mat is placed after the energy station so you can fill up your battery before the upcoming hilly part filled with slippery rocks, verdant forests and winding gravel roads. Wich leads to the beautiful village of Kungshamn where you will be provided with cinnamon buns and raw food bars to get you energized and ready for a few kilometers of asphalt before arriving at the famous pier in Smögen. Here you will run by some late-summer tourists, small shops and restaurants.

After Smögen comes 10 kilometers of single tracks, passing mountains and forests till you get to the first passing of the Sote Channel which has both energy and stoped clock if you can´t pass the bridge due to opening of the bridge.

Following this part, there will be 16-kilometers of excellent trails in the beautiful nature reserve Ramsvikslandet. This is a unique place, full of red-colored granite slabs and traces from the ancient ice sheet with giant kettles and ice slides.

After the second passing of the Bridge over Sote Channel, you will run along the hand-dug channel with magnificent views combined with a hilly terrain. During this part, you will meet your last true challenges in having to beat two mountains before reaching the picturesque port of Hunnebostrand and the finish line where you will be served food and drinks. Additionally it is here you will have the opportunity to reserve a place on a well-deserved finisher’s banquette.
