About Vuokatti Trail Challenge
The start is located at an old school in Teerivaara and the finish is at hotel Vuokatinhovi. The track follows – hiking route and goes over total of 13 large hills or ‘vaara’ as called in Finnish. The track offers outstanding hill, forest and lake sights for runners. Total height difference is about 960 meters and some of the climbs and descends are very steep and rocky, which makes the run very technical and challenging. Runners should be careful on the hill sides especially in wet conditions. As the route is very demanding especially in the last 13 kilometers it is sure to offer unforgettable experiences when overcoming the challenges. However, the hard work is rewarded with superb sights at the top of the numerous hills. The track is very versatile. It’s mostly wide and clean path but there’s also duckboards and stairs, rocks and rocky areas as well as short parts of sand roads. Despite the very technical parts, the track is generally well runnable. This route is by far the most stunning and awe-inspiring part of the Vuokatti Trail Challenge.
