We will be making some changes to our aid stations this year. Please read the detailed information below.
-There will be no food/water available at the Fjellheisen at the start of the race, but there will be some fruit and bars available the second time you pass the Fjellheisen.
-Breivikeidet aid station will this year be a “drop-point”. This means that you will turn in a bag at the start of the race that will be transported to Breivikeidet. You will be able to pack your own personally desired food/drink or other gear that can be accessed when passing Breivikeidet. There will not be any available food/water from the organizer here. There is water at river crossings shortly before and after the aid station.
-This will also be an opportunity to send any extra clothing that may be useful if you should not reach a cut-off time at Breivikeidet. We will assist with transportation back to The Edge, but there can be some waiting time.
Tromsdalstind Skyrace and Bønntuva Skyrace:
-There will be bars and fruit available at the Fjellheisen, but a more limited selection than earlier years.
-There will be water available, but we recommend racers to use the brook crossings on the course below the Fjellheisen.
-All racers will receive a soft-flask from Dynafit! This is great to use to fill water along the course!
-All racers will receive a warm meal from Real Turmat at the finish.
Based on the updated travel regulations concerning covid-19, we have decided to open up registration for Tromsø Skyrace 2021 for foreign residents! This applies to Hamperokken Skyrace, Tromsdalstind Skyrace and Bønntuva Skyrace. Each racer is responsible for following the current rules set by the Norwegian government regarding vaccine, quarantine, testing and documentation. Tromsø Skyrace has a “no refund policy”, and this applies to any changes that may occur that will affect traveling to Norway. Use this website to keep yourself informed and updated about the current regulations: https://www.fhi.no/en/op/novel-coronavirus-facts-advice/facts-and-general-advice/entry-quarantine-travel-covid19 . Tromsø skyrace will not be able to answer questions about this.
Racers who have been promised spots in 2022 are still guaranteed pre-registration for the race next year.
We really hope to be able to welcome you to Tromsø in august and hope that each athlete shows responsibility and respect for the current situation and the regulations set in place.
Tromsø Skyrace Organizing Team
Tromsø Skyrace 2020 is canceled due to the Covid-19 situation.
We will not be refunding registration fees, but will be donating these to the Red Cross. We hope you understand our decision and appreciate our support of the volunteer work done by the Red Cross both locally and internationally. Our local Red Cross has lost much of its funding due to canceled events, but they are still contributing to safety in the mountains. They are also volunteering to help testing of patients at the hospital and transporting patients to and from the hospital. We will pay our normal event fee to the local Red Cross, and the rest of income from registration will be donated to the Red Cross’s crisis help for international projects.
Runners who are registered for Hamperokken Skyrace 2020 will be guaranteed a spot in Hamperokken Skyrace 2021. They will receive information about pre-registration in January. There will be no limit on registration for Blåmann Vertical, Tromsdalstind Skyrace and Bønntuva Skyrace, so runners will be guarenteed spots for these races next year.
Tromsø Skyrace 2021 will be held Saturday, August 7th, 2021. Blåmann Vertical will be held Thursday, August 5th.
We are sad to not be seeing you this summer, but hope to see you in 2021!

Important information about registration for Hamperokken Skyrace!
Due to limited number of available spots, we will again be using a queue-system for registration for Hamperokken Skyrace. It is important that you choose the correct language so that you will be able to use the information sent to you. You will be given a spot in the queue by entering your email address. You will receive an email with instructions for completing your registration and you will have 24 hours to complete your registration. If you do not complete it in 24 hours, you will lose your spot and the next person will receive an email with instructions. The queue system ends when all 250 spots are filled. There is no waiting list after this.
If you would like, you can already create an athlete profile in EQTiming to use while registering. Just follow the registration link and then go to “Log in”. Here you will be able to create a new user/profile if you do not have one already.

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

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.

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.
