The next Winter Warrior Finland takes place 6.4.2019.
Running in deep snow and ice swimming in Pallas-Ylläs National Park in Lapland. What is it all about?
A few comments from 2018 racers:
“This cannot be explained. This must be experienced.”
“Toughest race where I’ve participated, but also the coolest. Unbelievable.”
“Very impressive course and landscape! Top organization! Best race I ever had!”
“All you need is SISU!”
Winter Warrior Finland is the toughest obstacle course race above the Arctic Circle. Put your physical and mental strength to a real test with 13 kilometers of obstacles, immersing snow and freezing water. Race from summit to summit and enjoy the most amazing scenery and the freshest air in the World.
This arctic race gives a refreshing breeze to swiftly growing Obstacle Course Racing scene. In a national park there is no scaffolding, the obstacles are mainly based on nature. There is running in deep snow, crawling in snow tunnels, climbing on ropes and diving in the hole in the ice.
In addition to the race squads there is a more relaxed Winter Warrior Challenge. The challenge is intended for those who want to challenge themselves alone or as a group but are not interested in competing or else want to take it a bit less serious.
Finnish national parks are protected areas with unique natural features. We are priviledged to have the chance to race in the breathtaking landscape breathing the freshest air in the World. Because of that both organizers and racers are proud to follow the principles of sustainable nature tourism in the National Park.
