A brand-new Pro Tour event in Bodø, Norway!

On Saturday, March 22, 2025, the Ski Classics Pro Tour travels to a new destination in Norway. The brand-new Pro Tour event, Marcialonga Bodø, a 50-kilometer classic race, marks the 12th event of Season XVI.

Marcialonga Bodø, a Ski Classics Challengers event last season, features urban surroundings and breathtaking nature. The bustling town of Bodø has it all – from steep alpine mountains and northern lights to the strongest maelstrom in the world.

Now, in a significant development, Marcialonga Bodø expands its horizons by joining the Ski Classics Pro Tour calendar for the much-anticipated event 12 of Season XVI. The event is a unique 50-kilometer long-distance race that promises to deliver a riveting spectacle.

Ski Classics Director David Nilsson expresses his enthusiasm for the new addition, stating:

“It is with great happiness that we can announce a new Pro Tour event in Bodø, Norway. Bodø is located on a stunning location on a peninsula between the sea and the mountains. Bodø is, with its over 55.000 inhabitants, the largest city in which Ski Classics has an event finish. And it is a city full of life and charm. Last season, there was a Challengers in Bodø for us to try out the cooperation, and the feedback was that it could be a splendid part of the Pro Tour. It is also a gateway to the majestic Lofoten, an area in Norway that everyone should visit once they can!”

Marcialonga Bodø

Bodø, appointed the cultural capital of Europe in 2024, is one of the fastest-growing cities in Norway and has all the urban qualities one could wish for in a big city. Yet, it is surrounded by breathtaking mountains and a clear Arctic Sea nearby. This will create a ski race out of the ordinary – a mix of urbanity and stunning coastal nature.

Unfolding over a 50-kilometer course, the race starts amidst high-rise buildings and traffic at Bodø City Hall, winds through the enchanting Bodø forest, ascends to a panoramic viewpoint of the city, and returns to the city center.

Skiers and viewers will be able to enjoy the view of the legendary Lofoten Islands, the majestic Børvasstindan – and they might even get a glimpse of Saltstraumen, the strongest maelstrom in the world, on their epic journey in the Arctic landscape.

The center of the race is Rådhusparken in Bodø Center. This represents a unique opportunity to stage a compact event, virtually negating the need for shuttle buses or other transport modes. The athletes can walk from the city hotels, the airport, and the railroad station to the start- and finish line. The central location also means easy access for the spectators to join the Ski Festival. In its inaugural year, several thousand spectators joined the event in the middle of Bodø and enjoyed the sports, local gastronomy, and local music in the park.
