The Arctic Triple – Lofoten Skimo is the truly arctic race in The Arctic Triple and will take place every year in week 11(week 10 in 2019) . It’s a ski mountaineering race offering one extreme (4000+) and one normal distance (1000+). The race will be a northern lights race that is set in mid March, when the traditional Lofoten fishing is at the peak of the season. Maybe you’ll get a good catch too? The next race will take place in 2019 – March 7th till March 10th!
The Arctic Triple – Lofoten Ultra-Trail® will always take place in week 22. Several distances are offered – 100 miles, 50 miles, 24 km, 12 km and a relay. Starting the 100 miles in iconic Reinefjorden, the 50 miles at Lofotr Viking Museum and the 24 KM at a traditional fish factory – all three distances are packed with mountains, beaches, green hills and almost the entire time with an ocean view. The new 12 km is a circle course starting and finishing at the main square in Svolvær, crossing the mountain Tjeldbergting, offering a 360-degrees panoramaview of the sea, mountains and Svolvær. We look forward to do it all again in 2019 in week 22 – May 31st till June 2nd!
The Arctic Triple – Lofoten Triathlon will take place every year in week 33. Several distances are offered – Extreme, Olympic+, Super sprint and Kids triathlon.
