24h ultra is an unique race as it gives opportunity to push your limits without carrying lots of food, planning a drop bag etc.
You will "enjoy" 17k loop for 24h passing a base camp each time to recharge, change cloths, sleep, chill with others. That give you a comfort of going light and fast. Loop is 80% single track, 10% gravel road with plenty of difficult terrain and lots of small hills.
Even though 17k has about 350m elevation only (acc to good watch) it feels like much more !
Here are some quotes from finishers:
"Man this trail is brutal"
"I'm surprised how did you find so many hills in here!"
Runners will share the same trail with ultra runners (who are going to start a day before). Trail is 80% of single track in difficult terrain, 10% gravel, plenty of small hills :)
Nice trail in classic Småland's scenery with few small hills and rather easy terrain can be good intro to trail running.
Oh one more!!
Remember to bring your old destroyed running shoes. Instead of landfills they can be reused into our art installation.
