I somehow have got the feeling that these news will excite all athletes signed up already and also those considering an entry: At the premiere of the Montane Lapland Arctic Ultra in 2022 we will actually hit the 500 km mark with our long distance! The reason for this increase is a change regarding a trail towards the North end of our long loop. This means that our „shorter“ distance of 185 km is not affected by this change. Participants in our long race now will go a bit further North before heading West and then South again. The time limit will remain at 10 days.
This update may also affect a couple of checkpoints and the distances between them. Once this is confirmed, I will let you all know.
