Get ready to Ragnarok!
The world’s largest snowkiting event will return to the Hardangervidda Plateau in Norway for its eighth edition next year. The legendary snow kite ultamarathon will run April 5-8th when more than 300 snowkiters from all over the world converging for an epic battle against the weather, each other and, ultimately, themselves across the mountain planes.
The 2017 edition was the hardest Ragnarok to date at which, of the 350 kiters from 29 nations who started the race, only eight managed to finish all five laps of the 130 km long course. The participants had to cope with storm force winds that reached nearly reaching 100 km/h (62 mph) in the gusts with Felix Kersten winning the event and racing legend Steph Bridge topping the women’s division. You can see the complete 2017 results here.
As always, the race to secure a spot is almost as challenging as the event itself and last year it was sold out in less than two minutes!
Registration for the 300 available spots opens Tuesday December 5th at 18:00 CET on www.redbullragnarok.com.
