The competitions I participate in have distances from 79 km to 483 km. Most over 160 km there is a stage race where we get water every 10-20 km and in addition there is a tent that we will live in the days the competition is going on. Food for 5 to 10 days, clothing and all other necessary equipment, we have to carry in your own backpack and in the pool during the winter.
The competition is on extremely remote areas with extreme weather conditions and day trips have lasted more than thirty hours. Equipment, shoes and clothing can not fail in these competitions as we do not have access to "spare parts" during the competitions.

Jeg skulle til Peru for å konkurrere i Jungle Ultra som går gjennom regnskogen Amazonas.

Telt var ikke aktuelt på grunn av alle kryp og den […]Read More
There was a bus transfer from Dubai to the desert where the race was to start. As a transport I chose to use Uber-offroad. With map coordinates as the only reference, there was some error-navigation before we arrived at a large tent camp. We were informed that this should be the camp […]Read More

My favorite of the desert races is the "Iranian Silk Road Ultramarathon". High security with limited number of participants with high quality and local ownership. Tough competition with an alternative route that "everyone" can accomplish. The Dasht-e Loot has a beautiful and fascinating nature, including the plateau Gandom Beryan, the hottest spot on earth. This year's edition […]Read More

When choosing clothing, it is important to think that the choices made will be on the body for seven days in extreme heat, out in a desert without shower and washing facilities. In addition, there are cacti, bushes with thorns and a sack that rubs both [...]Read More
