(Åre mountain Race 2019)
Årefjällsloppet will be held on 6 April 2019 for elite and amateur runners. Category 5.5 is the main category starting in Vålådalen and finishing in Edsåsdalen. It’s a 55 km-long race through medium-difficulty, hilly terrain. Participants start in the Lathis trail in Vålådalen and then ski through Östra Vålådalen, Ottsjön, Trillevallen and Älgberget, all the way to Edsåsdalen. An absolutely gorgeous trail with challenging hills and amazing views.
Category 3.0 (30 km) also starts in Vålådalen but excludes the highest trails up the mountain, i.e. the Lathis trail and the Älgbergsrundan trail. The Ottsjöbacken hill is still a challenge on this trail, otherwise it’s a slightly easier race than the 5.5. And it has a magnificent mountain atmosphere and amazing views.
1.1 starts in Edsåsdalen and follows a gentle loop close to the mountain before finishing at the same place as the other categories.
The relay race splits the 5.5 distance (55 km) into 3 legs of between 11 and 18 km each. The first handoff is in Vålådalen and the second handoff is in Ottsjö. Perfect if you want to do something together!
Buses will take you from Trillevallen to the starting points.
