It is still possible to stay in Hamar, although races are carried out at Birkebeineren Ski Stadium. It takes only 50 minutes to drive from Hamar to the stadium, compared to the 25 minutes that it takes to drive to Gåsbu / Vang. If anyone should still choose to switch hotels, this must be on everyone own´s responsibility. Those who have booked a room at Hamar must expect to be charged for these.
The Norwegian Ski Federation will continue to use Rica Hamar (Olrud) as arrangement hotel. If there is need for it, the Norwegian Ski Association will set up some shuttle service from Rica Olrud to the stadium (e.g. for waxers in the morning).
This Information will be updated on the event's website continuously from Friday 5th December. We will present course maps, time schedule, road maps and more information on this website.
