Explore Sweden Expedition Adventure Race 2009
– The 1000k monster

 

The 2009 edition - the fifth of its kind - will take racers from the coastal city of Sundsvall on a great journey through the middle of Sweden en route to the mountains at the Norwegian border and back again.

The teams will be racing at the peak of Sweden's fantastic and light-filled summer period, when the sun circles high in the sky, dips below the horizon for a couple of hours, and then rises again.

The race course will cover 1,000 km and teams will travel through vast forests, on rivers and lakes, and in the high alpine mountains in the most beautiful parts of Sweden.

Good navigation is critical for the race, with maps and roadbook. The race will include trekking, orienteering, mountaineering, kayaking, hydrospeed, rafting, zip-lines, mountainbiking, inlines, downhill biking and spectacular repellings...
