A warm welcome to the 7th edition of the ultra-trail race Blefjells Beste, to be organized 24 July 2021.
The information below corresponds to the 2020 race. We will update this invitation in due time before the enrolment opens, 1 November 2020.
The race has start and finish at the private cabin Bestebu, located at Klengstøl along the road “Store-Bleveien” (see directions).
We offer the following routes:
The routes are mostly following footpaths, some parts are also in mountain terrain without paths. The last 2-3 kilometers are on gravel road.
For maps and GPS tracks, see routes.
The routes are well marked. More than 1/3 of the 57 km is on permanently T-marked path, “Nordmannsslepa”, along the Store-Ble mountain massif. Along other parts of the routes there are red/white ribbons.
14 hours on 57 km.

Safety and behaviour
Each participant is responsible for his/her own safety. It is mandatory to help an other participant who is in an emergency situation.
The participants must take particular care when encountering wild reindeer.
The race is based on the principle of self-support, which means that each participant must carry all food, drink, and equipment needed along the route. Normally it is easy to find drinking water in streams.
