Nuuksio Classic organizer have heard many times the request to offer an ultra distance with two loops on the marathon course. As the interest in ultra running is increasing, we are now offering Nuuksio70 Trail Ultra, a new 70km ultra run on the wonderful trail network of Nuuksio national park and nearby recreational forests.
However, we thought two loops on the same course is a bit boring, so last autumn we went running across the area to find new interesting trails to include to the course. The result is a beautiful, challenging, and very interesting course that crosses the whole Nuuksio forest in one 70km loop. One of the specific features of the course is that it takes runners to over 30 lakes.
As far as we know, Nuuksio70 Trail Ultra is the only ultra trail run in Southern Finland in 2017. We are applying for ITRA ranking statuts and UTMB points to both 42km and 70km distances. Hopefully this draws attention to our great event also abroad.
