Course description

From the start there are 10 tracks beyond Orvillingen, further downhill towards Vassmillom. Here the route divides into two. The 20 km runs towards Vålåsjøen, while the 45 km continues towards Kringseter and the first climb up the Smukksjøen.

The family race over 12 km turns off the common trail at Skjemtjønna in the direction towards Hovde.

After a speedy descent towards Fryosen, the trail crosses the river, Frya, at the southern end of the lake, Furusjøen, and then enters the common trail again down towards the food station at Frya.
We note that the 12 km trail crosses the road open to ordinary traffic several times, so it is important to be caution.

From Smukksjøen, the tracks goes down towards Vålåsjøen and meets the 20 km at the Vålåsjøsætrene and Karelen food- and drink zone. The track then continues in light and varied terrain towards Pungen. Continue past Luseby and down towards Frya and third/second food zone. Here the trail divides again, 20 km continues up towards Hovdemyra, while 45 km continues down Frydalen.

From Frya, the track goes up a steep climb towards Koltjønnhaugen, then towards Fiskedalen and the third feed zone. From here, the trail swings suddenly to the right (90 degrees) and back towards Furusjøen. The track runs slightly up the vally of Bergemellom in slightly hilly terrain to Hovdemyra and the fourth feed zone.

Here the tracks meet again and follow the same course to the finish. Congratulations, you have completed "The Adventure in Rondane".
