- seeding to BirkebeinerrittetGrenserittet and CykleVasan

The adventure in Rondane starts quietly on gravel roads down to beautiful Furusjøen, up through Hovde, down the Bergemillomsvalley close to Rondane National Park.

At just over 9 km, the course rises by 422 ascent until you reach the top of Krøkla, 1.162 m.a.s.
For those who take the time, you can enjoy a fantastic view of Rondane and Jotunheimen. Here is the first food station.
If it is heavy up, it is correspondingly easy down.

The course continues past Aftstjønn and through a beautiful landscape up to Gravdalen. This is the course`s second terrain challenge of 3.5 km.
From snowy mountains and through the forest you reach Tjønnsætra.
Here the course goes on fast forest trails, terrain and gravel towards Tjønnmorka and the second food station. Into the terrain  towards Kringsætrin.

Then the course turns towards Smukksjøen and the course's other long terrain part down again to Furusjøen and Colastation at Vassmillom.

The last part of the course goes up Haugseter past the Rondablikk Hotell and into the finish at Rudland Fjellsenter.
