Montane Lapland Arctic Ultra (MLAU): 06 March, 2022

New for 2022! Don’t miss the inaugural Montane Lapland Arctic Ultra, an ultra-race for runners, bikers, and skiers through the heart of Lapland. Also known as the MLAU, will be an annual event set to attract ultra-athletes from all corners of the globe.

Brought to you by the people behind the notoriously challenging Montane Yukon Arctic Ultra, the MLAU offers an exciting new cold climate challenge. Racers will follow in the tracks of snowmobile trails in the Swedish Lapland, exploring a stunning landscape of rivers, lakes and forests.

The Montane Lapland Arctic Ultra takes place deep into the Northern Swedish Winter and racers will tackle temperatures as low as - 30 degrees celsius. This makes it among the world’s toughest ultra races.

2 races to track

Both routes will start and finish in the small town of Överkalix, in the Swedish province of Norbotten. Each race will head deep into Sweden’s wild landscapes, crossing the Arctic circle.
