Lapland – Finland
An unique adventure
The NOMAD event 2022 takes place north of the Arctic Circle in Finnish Lapland
The Finnish Lapland
The start of the NOMAD 2022 event will be on January 24 on the Arctic Circle, in the village of Santa Claus. The 270 km route will take participants through the municipalities of Rovaniemi and Sodankylä.
To the rhythm of the creaking snow under your feet, this exceptional adventure will make you discover unspoiled nature. From the beauty of the frosted trees to the blue hue of the polar night, you will experience a preserved environment dotted with frozen lakes and perhaps you will be lucky enough to see the Northern Lights dancing across the bright midnight sky.
The arrival of this unique event will be on the Ounasjoki River in Rovaniemi.
270 km non-stop in Lapland
The first edition of the NOMAD event is a 270 km non-stop ultramarathon that takes place north of the Arctic Circle, in Finnish Lapland. Competitors have 4 days (96 hours) to complete the entire route. Mandatory Checkpoints will be set out along the route to monitor the competitors and to provide hot water. At these places it will be possible to rest.
The competition is in Self-Supported, which means that each competitor must carry their compulsory equipment, food, personal gears, safety equipment and a minimum of 1,5 liters of water.
In January the temperatures in the region oscillate between -5 ° and -30 ° degrees. In addition, the length of the days is extremely short (around 5:30 hours). The runners will therefore have to progress on the course in the dark using the GPS route provided by the organization. The extreme conditions in which NOMAD 2022 takes place require specific preparation and technical equipment.
