An exciting novelty of 2017 Bodom Trail is the night trail run Bodom Night by Petzl. It starts on Friday May 5th at 10pm, half an hour after sunset in full darkness.
The 10k course of Bodom Night by Petzl is a combination of the two loops of 21k. It includes Sorlampi and Hynkänlampi lakes and some new trail sections. Parts of the course will be run in the opposite direction of what is normally followed, so it will be a unique experience versus running in the daytime, even for the most regular of Bodom Trail participants. Running in a dark forest with a headlamp, reflective course markings, as well as cosy campfires along the course and at the finish will create a unique trail running experience that you definitely should not miss!
For the most active trail experts there is the Bodom Double, ranking by the total time of Bodom Night (10k) and Saturday’sBodom Trail 21k. All runners who sign up with identical runner details to both races will automatically make it to the double results. You can also sign up directly to Bodom Double and claim a special bib that reveals that you’ve had ‘Friday night adventures’ to your fellow runners on Saturday.
Bodom Night main partner is Petzl, a brand of popular headlamps and climbing gear. Petzl headlamps will be available for testing on our community run April 4th and during the event. Learn more about Petzl lamps here.
