The course is generally dry, but in the event of rain there can be slippery conditions on the rocks, as well as mud. Some shorter sections have wooden boardwalks, which can be tricky, especially if it’s been raining. Once you’re on top of Dundret, the course is clearly marked and easy to follow. However, the trail is quite rocky and you could easily slip if you’re not careful. Sparbanken Nord is giving a special prize to the first three runners to make it to Pelikansvängen, about 3.5 km in.
