Lysebotn opp is a traditional uphill race arranged each year at the Blink festival.
For most athletes this is one of the hardest and best test during the summer. It is always exciting to see who has done their summer training well in front of a new season in this spectacular race!
A part from elite athletes and excercisers, the younger athletes will also get a change to compete in the uphill race. The youngest of athletes only compete in the last 1-2km of the track, but will experience the same cheering and athmosphere as the elite athletes. This is the summers greatest experience, both for athletes and audience!
