Swedish Johanna Åström conquered the women’s field with an impressive new course record. Training at home in Romsdal together with Emelie Forsberg must have helped prepare her well for Tromsø Skyrace!

Sea to Summit Blåmann Vertical
Swedish Johanna Åstrøm conquered the women’s field in the vertical kilometer, beating Emelie Forsberg’s earlier course record. She was followed on the podium by American Hillary Allen, who has returned to Tromsø (as strong as ever!) after her tragic accident here in 2017. Oihana Azkorbebeitia placed 3rd.
In the men’s race, it was a French sweep with Damien Hubert winning ahead of Yoann Calliot and Benoît Gandolfi.

There is no water on the course, so you will have to bring any water you need. There will be no water at the summit/finish. We will have water jugs by the start so you can refill bottles – but no cups, so bring your own cup or bottle!
Awards ceremony will take place at The Edge at 9 PM. There will be a raffle with prizes from Sea To Summit Gear for those who are present.
Due to an increase in total participants in both Tromsdalstind Skyrace and Bønntuva Race, we have decided to separate the start times.
Bønntuva Race will start at 11.15 AM on Saturday, August 3rd.
There will be a 3 hour maximum time to the summit. Racers who do not reach the summit in 3 hours will be turned around by the summit crew on their way down.
There are still spots available for Bønntuva and Tromsdalstind! Come join the fun!
