Kruke's Ultra-Trail Challenge


Welcome to the ultimate autumn ultra challenge!

The KUTC challenges you to run an out-and-back trail from Saksvik to Solemsvåttan as many times as you can within the given time limits. Test your own limits!

  • Make it 4 times to do the 'fun run'
  • Make it 7 times to be a real ultra-trail runner (> 42.2 km)
  • Make it 8, 12 or 15 times to reach the classic ultra distances of 50 km, 50 miles or 100 km
  • Make it 24 times to run 100 miles, climb Mount Everest... and be a legend!
  • Make it 25 times to earn the maximum of six ITRA points!

In general, the race takes place on the third Saturday in October. Deviations may occur, so please check the exact date for any given year!

Fair warning...

If you're aiming mainly for the ITRA points, then this is probably some of the hardest earned points you can get! The ITRA rules 'punishes' looped races such as this. Also, the race takes place at a time of year when you have a good chance of fighting the weather, darkness and fierce trail conditions in addition to the normal challenges with huge ascents, tough descents, ultra distance fatigue, calorie deficit and, if nothing else breaks you; possible sleep deprivation.

All good fun for us crazy ultra adicts though :)
