A fairytale of a run across Europe's biggest mountain plateu and last wilderness - the place where polar explorer Roald Amundsen prepared for his expeditions and almost paid with his life on one occasion.
The 123 km ultra trail run Salomon Xreid Hardangervidda start at Dyranut in Hardanger, runs across the plateu, down about 800 D- from the plateu to Rjukan before its grande finale; a 1.600 D+ technical climb to the peak of Mt. Gausta - a prominent mountain from where one on a clear day can see 60.000 km2, or about 1/6 of Norway.
The mountain plateu is also the arena for the Norseman Xtreme Triathlon and the Expedition Amundsen ski/sledge race, and my finishing of the Salomon Xreid Hardangervidda 2014 was the last piece to have finished all three extreme-races across the plateu.
Thanx to the fantastic organizers/ crew!
