"Drivvejen" is one of the oldest and then most important trade routes along the danish west coast - from the north all the way to the borrder to Germany.
It was primarily used to transport cattle and other valuable goods down from the Northern Jutland to the major marketplaces in Germany, the Netherlands and Belgium.
To this day, one can still find traces of the past down along the old trade route.
As a participant in this event, you experience the “real” Denmark. The driveway winds from Thyborøn to Tønder, through some of the least populated areas we have here in Denmark. Large forest areas, heat landscapes, tow ferries and large open expanses are just a few of what awaits you on this amazing ride in the cattle drivers' trail.
The King distance is 350km and starts at sunrise at ca. 04:36AM on 17th of June 2023 in Thyborøn.
The main challenge of the event is to reach Tønder before sunset at ca. 22:06.
“From Dawn to Dusk”
There will also be a half distance of 175 km from Varde to Tønder and a 50 and 100 km distance with start and finish in Tønder.
The race is run according to GPS and becomes more "Adventure" inspired.
One week before the race, the GPX file is sent with the route - you are responsible for downloading the file and finding your way via GPS.
The race is unsupported if you attending the "Unsupported" class.
Ie. you need to be able to fend for yourself all the way. We will help you with a guide to where you can refuel water, opportunities to find provisions etc.
On the 350 km route there will be a "Drop Zone" in Varde. Here we bring a bag for you, which you can pack with whatever you need approx. halfway on the trip.
Supported riders will meet feed zones with energy from our sponsers.
