Welcome to LGT – 2015 – Arrival information
 
We are now in Branäs, and we have started to prepare the race on sight. This is some short arrival information.
Accommodation
Teams arriving on Thursday,  can pick up the keys at apartment 7 in Mickelbyn, 200 meter north of the main entrance. A big Thule trailer will be parked just outside.
Teams arriving on Friday can pick up the accommodation at Spishyllan 16.00-18.00. Remember to bring towels and sheets. 
 
Weather
The weather forecast looks good, but remember, -3 degreas at CP 1-2 on Saturday and a rather cold night between Saturday and Sunday, don’t go light and cold… on your equipment.
Rapids
The Klarälven river, which you will padle in on the last section has dubbled the amount on water the last two weeks. This is very good, because all the stones will be  covered by the water. Just remember to paddle in the center of the river. Attached is an sample of the last map. We recommend all team, on the way to the kayak drop, to scout the point at Strängsforsen which you must avoid. (Avoid west side)

Bikes and buss
Smal changes in the logistic schedule:
  • We will receive the bikes and the protection blanket, Saturday morning between 05.30-06.00.
  • The buss will depart 06.30, not a minute later.
Equipment
In the roles, for some reasen the water proffed mobile and first aid kit has ben lost. This is off course mandatory with 0046703256815 stored in the phone.
