The race starts at Ringhaugstrand outside of Tønsberg. After the first run stage, you run and swim south towards the Bolærne archipelago. After the Bolærne archipelago, the course will take you west towards Gåsøy, Hvaløy and Bjerkøy. After Bjerkøy, you will reach Nøtterøy, and then it is time for a longer run stage to Vrengensundet.
When you have crossed Vrengensundet, the longest run stage of the race is waiting. You run south via a beautiful coastal path towards Engø Gård. Afterwards, it is time for a short swim to the island of Hvasser. From Hvasser, you move south towards the beautiful Sandø to complete a run stage before you move back to cross Hvasser.

The last stage passes the race hotel, Havna Hotell, before moving south towards World’s End.
The race is tough. Rocks, forest paths and open water with waves and currents make the course very challenging. In return, it is extremely beautiful. We reckon a finishing time around 6-7 hours for the fastest teams. (The final course is subject to change)
