Get a taste of Offroad Finnmark

SpareBank 1 Nord-Norge OF150 km is the Ultramarathon MTB race for everyone

Offroad Finnmark starts the moment you register!

Offroad Finnmark 150 is a solo "Formula 1" race, and consists of 150 kilometers in tough terrain. The race is conducted as a day race.

Sparebank 1 Nord-Norge OF150 km covers much of the same terrain as our longer rides and you really get a feel for the adventure and what Offroad Finnmark is all about. Every year we visit Jotka Fjellstue, a regular checkpoint on the OF150 since 2008. Here you get delicious free hot food and drink, before the return to Alta.

The ride is excellent for those who do not have the opportunity to spend a lot of time training. At the same time, it is excellent for those who want to challenge themselves and others. It is also a great entry for those who one day dream of cycling some of the longer rides Offroad Finnmark can put up with.

The fastest participants complete the race in about 7 hours. To get a finisher's jersey, the race must be completed within 16 hours. The riders themselves must bring what they need in addition to the mandatory equipment.

Our many volunteers are ready to give you care and preparedness that you won't find anywhere else. They ensure that our participants get a unique offer such as technical service, bike washing, and anything else you may need help or assistance with. The only thing our volunteers think about is making sure that our cyclists get as optimal an experience as possible. You cannot help but be touched by their care.

Age limit 17 years. (If you turn 17 in the year of the event, you can participate.)

Offroad Finnmark provides equipment transport, technical and all checkpoint support, food and drink for those who do not have private support.

GPS/GPX track 2024 (final possibly adjusted track will be published on 11 July)


It is essential that you know how your GPS works and can navigate according to this during the ride. It is absolutely necessary to practice this before the race. Also, don't wait until the last minute to load and test your GPS against our tracks.

We post the tracks only in GPX format. This format is supported by all GPSs. When you follow the link to the GPX tracks above, select "Go to website" and find the track for your ride. We recommend that you first test Option A. If this does not work, try the next option.

Option A:

When you download "OFxxx_stages" you get a file containing all the stages for the selected race (OF150, OF300 or OF700). This means that when you use the file on the GPS device, you must activate a new track for each checkpoint.

Option B:

If you download a file from the "All-files" subfolder, you will get a file for the entire ride. Please note that the file for OF300 and OF700 may contain more points than your GPS can handle. Test that the entire file enters your device.

Option C:

If you cannot get all the features to work on your device, you can download the features individually from the "One-by-one" folder

Option D:

A final option if none of the above options work is to convert the gpx file to a FIT file. This can be done here: https://fit-route.pyrites.org.uk/

Some Garmin GPS may have bugs in relation to our files (Garmin 1030, 830 etc.).

Recipe for transferring tracks to Garmin Edge:

  1. Download the files via our link and save it locally on your PC/MAC.
  2. Connect your GPS via cable to PC/MAC
  3. Copy the GPX file into the "New files" folder on your 1030.
  4. Disconnect your GPS using the "Safely Release and Disconnect" icon.
  5. Test that all tracks work.

It is also possible to use the free program Basecamp (from Garmin) to transfer the tracks to your device. Here you can also convert the track (GPX file) into a route if you prefer a route to a track.
