We welcome the Norwegian and international media to Røros and alongside the race track in our beautiful mountain region, where the mushers and their four-legged friends race against the clock and themselves. We would like to invite you to the world’s largest dog sled race and this snowy celebration in our winter wonderland in the Norwegian mountains!
Media may register at the race office on Wednesday 29 January from 5:00 to 10:00 pm, Thursday, 30 January from 8:00 am to 5:30 pm or on Friday, 31 January from 8:00 to 10:30 am. Address: Rørosvidda Hotel (Idrettsparken Hotel), Øra 25, Røros >>
Accreditation card and vest must be worn at all times during the event. The vest must be returned at the race office before departure. Travel expenses, accomodation and meals have to be paid by the media individually (except for the partner program).
Images for editorial use can be downloaded freely from our account on Flickr before, during and after the race, provided the photographer is credited by name in the finished product.
The Femund Race welcomes all media representatives to The Femund Race. We wish to provide you with the best service possible and look forward to a good cooperation. To make sure that both visitors and locals have a great time, please follow directions from the volunteers. It is VERY important that NO-ONE trespasses the fences at start and finish. An unsnapped anchor can do serious damage on a preoccupied photographer.
Before start: The mushers will be available for interviews before the race. Please respect that some mushers may not wish to be interviewed shortly before the start.
During the race and at the checkpoints: Mushers and handlers should be allowed to finish their chores at the checkpoint before they are approached by the media. Photographing and filming must be executed in a manner which does not interfere with mushers, dogs or handlers. Some checkpoints have designated rest areas for the dogs, and only media with proper accreditation may enter this area.
After the race: Mushers may be interviewed after they have taken care of their dogs. There will be a designated media area at the finish line.
