Average temperatures in August range between 11-19°C with upwards of 18-hours light each day.

The Race

On Saturday, 3rd August, we will participate in the Fjällmaraton, a 45K mountain marathon.

The race follows a linear route with 1800m of elevation gain from Trillevallen to Ottsjö.

Our firsthand experience from the 2023 event has left us in awe of the race's picturesque route and flawless organisation.
