Will you be the one to carry your country flag? Will you get your name into the hall of fame of flag-bearers? Which country flag will cross the finish line first?
The first racer of each country to arrive to the final part of the course will get his country flag to carry. If you pass the bearer of your country flag before the finish line, you may grab the flag to yourself. The fastest racer of each country will thus arrive to the goal as a flag-bearer and will enter the Hall of Fame of flag-bearers.
We have got good deals from our partners. If you staying for the race only you can rent a room or an apartment from a hotel. Also there is a nice hostel option, easy on the pocket. Or do you have a chance to stay a bit longer? Then we would recommend renting a cottage.

Announcing a new OCR in Finnish Lapland! Winter Warrior Finland is the toughest obstacle course race above the arctic circle. For all those waiting for a race with deep snow and frozen lakes!
The story of Winter Warrior Finland started on January 2017 when Team Sikaniska Finland returned from the last ever Tough Guy race in Wolverhampton. There had been discussions with other competitors about the winters of Finland and the idea about a new winter race was born. Simo came home and told his wife Maria about these dreams. To his surprise she said “Let’s do it!”
Now we are happy to present Winter Warrior Finland. The first race takes place in Lapland, Pallas-Yllästunturi National Park at 21st of April, 2018.
