About Tromsø Mountain Challenge

Late August 21st to 23rd you can take part of the Tromsø Mountain Challenge (TMC) that contains four mountain races and is a celebration of Mountains Running. 

Friday Aug 21st: We kick off the TMC-weekend With the TMC Extreem Race. A 2,6K uphill run along the famous Sharpa Stairs in Tromsdalen that was built by Sherpas from Nepal. The race finishes at the Cable car station 420 meter over sea level. 

Saturday Aug 22nd is the Ultraday: There are two races on Saturday - Tromsø Mountain Ultra 50K and HalfUltra 25K. Buses bring the participants of the TMC Ultra 50K to Snarbyeidet where they embark on 50 kilometres of mountina terrain before finishing in Tromsdalen. The unique Arctic landscape set the stage for a spectacular race through an active reindeer herding District.  The history of Sami reideer herding in this area goes back serveral hundred years.  About half-way the participants from the TMC HalfUltra 25K join ranks With the 50K runners and side by side they ascend and descend the mountatins encircling the valley of Tromsdalen.

Sunday Aug 23rd is the TMC Tindløp 10,6km uphill race starts from Tromsdalen and goes up to the popular Tromsdalstinden that is 1238 m over sea level. 

Each on its own these races pose a serious Challenge. The ultimate Challenge for the high spirited however, is the TMC-Triple comprised of the TMC Extreme Race on Friday, TMC Ultra 50K on Saturday and TMC Tindløpet on Sunday.  What a weekend.
