The race is 6km and goes on the ice, the snow on the ice-walkway and some off the walkway. About 20 obstacles where as many obstacles as possible consists of snow and ice. We will also have some other obstacles of wood and other scaffolding. Everything depends on the snow situation!

The difficulty level on the obstacles is moderate, the vast majority can get through all obstacles and there is a short supplementary round if you can´t do the obstacle.
We focus mostly on a nice feeling of ice where you challenge Icebug’s ability of ice grip!

We also have a drop in-lane at 1km for all under 16! More info at the bottom.
