Race info 2017

Some information for those planning on participating in Reistadløpet. 

WEATHER PROGNOSES
The course are situated trough a mountainous terrain, which means that the weather varies along the course. The weather forecast for the week is light snow-fall most of the days. However on Wednesday, Friday and Saturday the weather is good. This implicates that for your preparations Wednesday and Friday would be the preferred days for inspections of the course in the mountains.
We will also see temperatures below zero.

All in all this should give us great race conditions on Saturday 1.April.
