The Polar Challenge route covers 514 kilometres. Competitors begin with a four-day training expedition in which they ski from Resolute to Polaris Mine - the Polar Challenge starting point. The race itself runs from Polaris to Issachen Mine through three checkpoints. The first two checkpoints are resupply points where competitors rest for 12 to 24 hours and take on new food and fuel supplies, and the third is the 1996 position of the Magnetic North Pole. It is difficult for planes to land here so the finish line is 40 km after this point, near a disused airstrip.
