Trail 31 km
If you take a close look at the profile for the 31 km course, you will hopefully get an idea about taking it easy from start. The first 3 km from Sørkedalen is pretty tough. After climbing the first kilometeters on gravel road you will enter technical paths. After 10 k you´ll find the only service station with food for the 31 km, before you continue by the pretty lake Bogstadvannet and down by the beautiful Lysaker river. The last 10 k has about 5 km asphalt, and where you can feel the breeze from the Oslo fjord.
The very last kilometer goes over the old fort called Akershus Festning and to finish at the pier called Vippa.
