The event schedule remains by the changes made in 2021. Due to the event restrictions we tried the new schedule in spring 2021 and got good feedback about it from you. Therefore we have decided to keep small and smooth starting groups for good.
The event will take place in May 27–28, 2022 in Kuusamo, Finland.
Timetable for the buses will be released in the next spring.
The longest 166 km race runs back and forth the Karhunkierros hiking route: from Ruka village to the Arctic Circle (Hautajärvi) and back to Ruka. The start is on Friday morning.
The 55 km race from Oulanka Visitor Center to Ruka starts in the early evening on Friday.
Also the 83 km race from the Arctic Circle (Hautajärvi village) starts on Friday but late evening, so that you will see both the sunset and the first rays of sunrise on the route.
It is the turn for the 34 km race on Saturday. It reveals the best parts of the Pieni Karhunkierros hiking route and then joins the route of the longer races.
Novelty – The 13 km race on Saturday afternoon
We desire to offer something to everyone. Because all of us aren’t longing for long distances, we added this shorter course in the schedule on Saturday afternoon. It takes place in the Pyhävaara nature reservation area and climbs up to the Ruka fell ending downhill to Ruka Ski Stadium. The minimum age of 13 km race is 12 years.
