Some more training: rafting, running and adventure 9/3/2015 3:14:43 PM

The world championships rafting team took part also to the national rafting championships in early June. We defended our last year's win and succeeded. During midsummer festival Mika took part to the Finland's most chanllenging half marathon in Ylläs sport resort. The route ascended 178 m, which had to be run twice. Mika's time was 1.40:00, which is ok considering the tough route. Mika took part to the Arctic Circle 24 extreme competition on 10 - 11th July (www.arcticcircle24.com). You can check the route and each team's performance and progression on the map at GPS Follow up . Mika's team was called Kukkulan Kuninkaat (Kings of the hill). Timewise the team was the third, but because of a mistake during the last orienteering route the team was disqualified. The team entered prohibited area by mistake. The 24-hour adventure, which consisted of mountain bikiing, rafting and orienteering, was good practice in endurance and it took more than 11 000 Kcal of energy.
