Kristin Kicked of Finnmarksløpet on IWD

Kristin was opening Finnmarksløpet before she and the 9 girls that make up “Jenter På Vidda” started.

“Finnmarksløpet is important, not only for Finnmark, but also for gender equality, as dog sled racing is one of the sports where men and women compete at the same level.”, says Kristin.

Then, starting “Jenter På Vidda”

On March 8th 2024, 1pm, it was time for Kristin’s team to start. The amazing crowd in Alta City Centre cheered the girls out of the starting block.

“Having my name called out over the speakers made it all so real, like, I am really doing this”, says one of the girls in the team.

Kristin is grateful for the support the team received while skiing out of Alta.

Getting Organised at Tuttaberget

After skiing through Alta City, the girls needed a short busride before starting the official trip from Tuttaberget a 30 minutes drive from Alta. Here they packed up their sleds with food, equipment, sleeping bags and tents.

Across Gaskajávri

First leg of the expedition was to cross the small frozen lake named Gaskajávri. Kristin was pulling Caroline in a sled, while the other girls pulled their own sled. While on the lake they met participants of Finnmarksløpet.
