We have done a small adjustment of the route before entering into the centre of Drammen. This change gives less contact with traffic and more soft ground. On the way into Drammen you will run through the beautiful Fjordparken, with a nice view to Drammensfjorden.
The 100 and 50 miles distances in Soria Moria til Verdens Ende 2018 are approved as qualifying races for the Ultra-Trail du Mont Blanc (UTMB).
