Rovaniemi150 was born in 2012. The first winter ultramarathon in Europe that combines three categories starting at the same time: ski, foot and fat-bike. 

In 2015 the organizer Polarguide and Logistics added two more races: Rovaniemi66 and Rovaniemi300.

All Rovaniemi Arctic Winter Races go through the forest in the Arctic Circle, around Finnish Lapland's main city: Rovaniemi.

These races have in common that they are self-sufficient and participants have to carry, apart from all mandatory gear, all the equipment they think they will need to finish it in a safe way.

Rovaniemi150 is a 150 kilometers ultramarathon. Maximum time to complete it: 42 hours. Three categories: foot, fat-bike and ski.

To participate in Rovaniemi150 it is not necessary to have experience in other winter races but people who participate must have experience in ultramarathons or long distance races or long distance traverses or winter mountain traverses and it is strongly recommended to have experience in winter bivouacs.

We understand that anybody who intends to participate in this kind of race without previous winter experience must have the common sense to get good information about all that is necessary to face a competition like this one.

At the checkpoints, except Sinettäjärvi checkpoint, racers will find a camp fire, basic shelter and water.

Rovaniemi150 is limited to 150 participants.
