Kjeringi Open – Spring’s most beautiful and wildest adventure!
Next event will take place april 2015.
Kjering Open is the world’s largest mountain telemarking race. It takes place on a weekend in the end of April each year.
In addition to the telemarking part, there is also a running-, bicycle- and LANGRENN (?) part. Would you like to join our wildest adventure and a festive village with plenty of fun in Hermansverk and Leikanger? Click on the link below or contact the Sognefjord hotel.
Who is suitable for the race?
The race is open for everyone over 10 years old. But our experience as organizers tells us that you should wait until you turn 14 years old. The walk up to the start of Kjeringafjell is also so demanding that only very few under 12 years old are able to go through with the first stage. For telemark skiers the day begins with a 3-hour hike to Kjeringafjellet (1314 meters above sea level) before the race starts.
