While I’ve never run the Stranda Fjord Trail Race, I can speak to the beauty and terrain this Norwegian fjord has to offer, as I visited and ran there in 2015. In quick summary, the beauty is off the charts and the terrain is some of the most challenging I’m willing to tackle. (Thanks to my friend, Frode Lein, for coaxing me to the summit of Slogen!) As far as I can tell, most foreign tourists quickly pass through this spectacular area via cruise ship or tour boat. Well, two lucky iRunFar readers will get to challenge themselves on one of the Stranda Fjord Trail Races’s three courses–25km, 48km, or 100km–on August 8th, 2020. Each winner will receive a free entry into the race of their choice and two nights of hotel accommodation. How does that sound for a summer holiday?
