Let a guide show you Åre’s most well-hidden trails, try bicycling in the midnight light and of course, there are plenty of activities for the kids during the week.

Fjällmaratonveckan (Mountain Marathon Festival), Start

31 July – 7 August 2021

For all lovers of running this is the highlight of the season. Fjällmaratonveckan offers one week of running in amazing mountain surroundings. The week starts off with the Salomon 27 K on July 31, which starts in Trillevallen and ends in Ottsjö. On the same day, the more surmountable (but no less awesome) Ottsjö 12 K starts and finishes in Ottsjö. If you wish to participate in both races, the Ottsjö 12 K is duplicated on August 7. You can also run the ”open start” Ottsjö 8 K on any given day, from Friday to Thursday, or you can participate in the finishing evening mass-start race on Thursday, August 5.


AUGUST

Fjällmaratonveckan (Mountain Marathon Festival), continues

31 July – 7 August

The festival continues with the Lundhag’s Mini Marathon for the younger participants on August 1. It starts and finishes in Edsåsdalen and there are two options: children from 0 to 6 years of age can start in the 800 meter race and kids from 7 to 12 years can participate in the 1500 meter race. On August 3 it is time for the Peak Performance Vertical K. It measures ”only” five kilometers from start to finish. But…the vertical difference is 1000 meters. It starts at Åre Square and you can find the finish line on top of Mt. Åreskutan.

On August 5 it’s time for the more explosive runners to participate in the Sprint in Ottsjö. 250 meters in maximum speed. The last day of the festival, August 7, offers three quite different race options. You can participate in the second edition of the Ottsjö 12 K, as described above, or you can take on the KIA Fjällmaraton (KIA Mountain Marathon). The race starts in Vålådalen and runs for 45 kilometers to Ottsjö across four mountain tops. If this feels like a too small of a challenge, you can always enter the 100 K Mountain Marathon (Fjällmaraton 100 K), from Fångåmon to Ottsjö.  

You can also run the ”open start” Ottsjö 8 K on any given day, from Friday to Thursday, or you can participate in the finishing evening mass start race on Thursday, August 5.

Järv Åre 

13-14 August 2021

Järv is the Swedish word for wolverine and they are offering a new and different concept in terms of competitions. Järv Äventyr offers two different types of events: Järv Äventyr (Järv Adventure) and Järv Familj (Järv Family). The first is made up of circa 16 kilmeters of hiking (or running if you prefer it) combined with challenges for body and brain. This is a team challenge suitable for groups of friends, colleagues or other groups who will get a chance to come together as a team. Järv Familj is suitable for, as the name reveals, the family and has a lot in common with the by now familiar concept Wild Kids. A fun and challenging experience for the family.
