The Schedule - Specific Dates During Your Trip

Thursday, March 2, 2023
You can take any international flight you wish. There is a bus transfer from the Stockholm airport to your hotel in Mora. You can also take a train to Mora from the Arlanda (Stockholm) airport (for late arrival, the train station in Mora is only ten minutes from your hotel).

Your hotel is located just 250 meters from the finish line, so this morning you can test your skis and find out what the snow conditions are so that you can wax just right. We will have a special wax room prepared just for this event. If you do not want to mess with waxing your own skis, we have a specialized wax team that can take care of it. You will take the lunch in the tent (not included in the package) where you get your BIB, and then you take our bus to Sälen (or Oxberg for the 30 and 45km distance).
You will be in teams of two, or in individual, with your headlamps and you will have to be ready at 8:00 p.m. on the dot. Remember, it is 90 km (or 30 and 45 km for the other distance) to the finish in Mora. As we said before, you can choose any technique you want—skate or classic. Each of you has to carry on your person a small backpack with the minimum amount of reserve equipment and also some food. There will be one refueling spot in Evestberg at 48 km. That means that you will be able to get some additional food at about two in the morning. The cutoff hour for arriving at the finish in Mora is eight in the morning. When you cross the finish line, it will still be dark out. You will simply walk to your hotel for a great breakfast that you will have certainly earned!

Sunday, March 5, 2023
Take your breakfast first and then you will go by bus to Stockholm airport (or by train depend of the number of participant) or extend your stay until Monday.
