Warning: One ride and you're hooked
Offroad Finnmark starts the moment you register!
300 tough kilometers. Unique wilderness. Blood Sweat and tears. Friendship for life.
SmartDok OF300 km is an adventure of a bicycle race.
You cycle through wilderness and the Sami core area, which has been used for several thousand years for hunting and fishing. We have created a ride that combines a unique nature experience and a sporting challenge that we dare to say you won't find anywhere else.
Offroad Finnmark 300 km is carried out in a terrain that is the heart of the wilderness. Checkpoints are located in mountain huts and village houses and staffed by our volunteers.
The SmartDok OF300 km Solo Adventure starts on Thursday afternoon in the center of Alta. Estimated finish is calculated for the day Friday. The classes are male and female.
The riders themselves must bring the equipment they need. Hot and cold food is served at the checkpoint. You can receive private/external support
Offroad Finnmark provides equipment transport, technical and all checkpoint support, food and drink for those who do not have private support.
Our 300 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 18 years. (If you turn 18 in the year of the event, you can participate.)

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.
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.
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.
If you cannot get all the features to work on your device, you can download the features individually from the "One-by-one" folder
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:
- Download the files via our link and save it locally on your PC/MAC.
- Connect your GPS via cable to PC/MAC
- Copy the GPX file into the "New files" folder on your 1030.
- Disconnect your GPS using the "Safely Release and Disconnect" icon.
- 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.
