Our 2022 premier event was also supported by:


Montane is run by people with a passion for outdoor performance sports in challenging and inspiring places. Whether running or biking, hiking or climbing the characteristics required from performance clothing are the same.

LIGHTWEIGHT … By reducing weight and pack size of all Montane clothing to the lowest achievable levels, the outdoor experience is further enhanced. Less energy is wasted carrying your clothing and more space is available for other essential items like food or equipment.

AND BREATHABLE … In all active-use outdoor situations the essential requirement of comfortable clothing is to prevent the weather entering your clothing, and at the same time allow your sweat and excess body heat to easily escape.

Having the right kit for a races like the Montane Yukon Arctic Ultra and Montane Lapland Arctic Ultra is essential. Therefore, from the beginning a lot of athletes have asked me for recommendations. Not long before I came to the conclusion that it makes sense to start selling gear in order to build a solid base for my company.

Racelite was born in 2005 and ever since our main focus has been Trail Running and a strong specialism in ultra and adventure running. No matter if mountains, arctic or dessert, in our online-shop you will find what you need.

Överkalix is a municipality in the northern part of Sweden, located in the middle of Europe’s coniferous forest belt. We are crossed by the Arctic Circle and surrounded by the national river Kalix älv. From here it is about 110 kilometers to Luleå (nearest airport) and about 250 kilometers to Kiruna.

We are one of the region’s smallest municipalities, but here there are great opportunities to work, make a career and at the same time live with a high quality of life.

X marks the spot“!

Sparkling winter, bright summer nights, ten minutes to everything. Gällivare is beautifully embedded in a unique landscape 100 kilometers north of the Arctic Circle. Almost 18 000 people live in the municipality with close proximity to work, services and nature. Here there is a county hospital, well-developed childcare, good schools, a rich community life and varied cultural offerings. The wilderness offers great opportunities for leisure and experiences beyond the ordinary, all year round. From the Norrbotten coast to Gällivare, it takes a couple of hours by train or car and a little more than that from Stockholm with daily flight connections.

Swedish Lapland is a collaborative place brand, designed to promote Sweden’s Arctic area to international travellers. The place brand also constitutes a collaborative platform for all the local destinations and tourism entrepreneurs in Norrbotten county and the municipalities Skellefteå and Sorsele. All operate within the joint place brand Swedish Lapland.

Heart of Lapland is the destination company that works to develop and market the tourism industry in the eastern part of Swedish Lapland – with its main destinations Haparanda, Kalix, Pajala, Överkalix and Övertorneå. Here in the borderlands between east and west, we refine our lifestyle and everyday life into unforgettable experiences and season them with the warm reception for which the area is known.

This is a region so beautifully unspoiled, alongside the ocean, rivers and lakes with mountains, woods and valleys surrounding. You may think you are time-travelling. Yet, we encourage you to take the time to travel through the treasures of Heart of Lapland. It’s a gift for you to unbox.

Firepot is our official provider of expedition meals. They use a different approach to the more common freeze-dried options for outdoor eating. Typically, freeze-dried meals are made using ingredients that have been dried separately, so the first time the flavours meet is when you add water to the pouch. And you can taste the difference. They cook each meal by hand, just as you would at home. Firepot ingredients are simple, honest and fresh, for explorers, adventurers and athletes who care as much about the nature they put into their body as the wild places they venture.

The company behind Wrightsock™ was founded in the USA in 1948 by Aileen and E.B. Wrightenberry in the basement of their home. In 1990 the brand Wrightsock was born. From the beginning it was the goal to make the best blister free socks available. They began the production of Double Layer socks and selling into the running market. This is coupled with the most technically advanced fibers, delivering the blister protection that you need. The outer layer is constructed of fibers specific to the activity. The inner layer is always a smooth, undyed, hydrophobic surface against the foot. Friction and shearing forces, created by rigorous activity, are absorbed by the interaction between the inner and outer layers of the sock instead of being passed on to the outer layers of the skin. The result is less blistering. We are sponsored by the company that is distributing Wrightsock to the German speaking market. You will find more information about them and their shop on their website. If you are an English speaker please check out and you will of course find their socks in specialist running shops and outdoor retailers.

If you go to remote places you will likely need satellite communication. These days we can choose between a satellite phone or satellite tracking and communication devices, like the Garmin inReach. For most people it does not make sense to actually buy either of these. As an event organizer it’s the same. You will want the best possible technology, a company that you can rely on and prices that are fair. In Fjallcom we have found all this. So, Fjallcom is our partner for everything related to tracking and also satellite based communication. They provide these services to races but also to consumers.
