The Course

The start / finish line and the whole day program is located at Trevarefabrikken, a former carpentry and cod-liver-oil production factory in Henningsvær (dating back to 1947), now having been transformed into a cultural hub and boutique hotel – situated in the scenic fishing village of Henningsvær located in the Lofoten Archipelago 40 minutes from Svolvær in the municipality of Vågan in Northern Norway.

Covering the road known by the locals as “Henningsværveien”, the course starts at Trevarefabrikken and from there goes out to the main parking lot (by Bryggehotellet), back to the village piazza / town square, continues through the Main Street of Henningsvær, out to the Finnholmen Fishing Facility and turning point at Henningsvær Rorbuer before going back through town again, passing Trevarefabrikken and the Main Street of Henningsvær, along the Kaviarfactory art museum, crossing two bridges and then following the road (“Henningsværveien”) all the way to the main road (E10) by Rørvika Beach.

At Rørvika Beach the runners turn and head back to Henningsvær, cross the bridges one last time, pass Trevarefabrikken and head out to Finnholmen Fishing Facility for the finishing sprint before crossing the finish line at Trevarefabrikken.

The course covers the central areas of Henningsvær and is extremely scenic with turquoise waters and alpine mountains surrounding you on your run most of the way from Henningsvær to Rørvika Beach and back again. Be sure to look out for whales in the ocean, local climbers at Presten and eagles above your head;)

The course is not entirely flat and there are som elevations along the road, most of them when crossing the two bridges when exiting town and between the local mountain “Festvågtinden” and “Djupfjorden” “mountain pass”.

There will be hydration stations at the following locations:

  1. Festvåg (on the way back)
  2. Djupfjorden “mountain pass”
  3. Rørvika Beach
