Svalbard SpaceRun

This weekend at Svalbard, the first ever vertical race this far north will take place in Longyearbyen.


Svalbard SpaceRun is the northernmost vertical race in the world, taking place at 78´North. The race is 8,5 kilometers long and 400 meters in elevation gain.

As a main sponsor to Svalbard Turn, we at KSAT are happy to host a unique finish up at the Svalbard Satellite Ground Station at the Platå Mountain where we are receiving satellite data from anywhere in the world on a daily basis. 

Being in the Arctic there will of course be armed polarbear guards placed along the route for protection and at this time of year one can still experience the midnightsun.

A tough, but fun challenge for everyone who loves uphill running!
