The Østfold Ultra Trail Challenge starts in Spydeberg and runs to Moss through the Østfold forest worthy of the title ‘Bèrghem Ultra’. It follows a 65KM trail and covers a 1800m terrain profile. It starts on the 2nd of October, 2021 at 09:00 and has a cut off point of 15 hours. For map details: click on ØUTC on our Caltopo map page. There is a maximum of 50 competitors allowed. Food stores and petrol stations along the way can be used to buy food and drinks.
Be surprised by how much pristine nature exists in Østfold. The most challenging part of the trail is from Mørk to Kirkebyden in Våler municipality, which is indescribably wild and beautiful. This is a physically and mentally demanding race in terms of navigating. But it’s ideal for anyone who loves nature at her best, and the distance is perfect for every ultra runner, except those not looking for a true challenge. ;)
The countdown is on to the next Østfold Ultra Trail Challenge race.
