There is 6 hours mandatory rest, plus time adjustment at Övre Soppero I (the first checkpoint) with no additional resting pot stated. Additional rest should be taken according to the need of your dog team, either at checkpoints or on the trail. This change has been introduced to encourage mushers to plan their own resting/racing strategy according to the training they have done and the needs of their dogs during the race, not just take the minimum rest stated. OUR GOAL IS TO HAVE MORE TEAMS CROSSING THE FINISH LINE WITH A FULL LINE-UP OF DOGS! Race vets will be checking the wellbeing of all teams during the race. Start at 14.00 Saturday 25th March. STARTING FEE 3500sek.
