The race runs from March 26 to 28 in Sisimiut, Greenland. This is one of the few races that Dæhlie has not won.
The Arctic Circle Race is taking place for the seventh consecutive year at Sisimiut on Greenlands west coast, about ca. 60 kilometres north of the Polar Circle. The distance of 160 kilometres will be covered in three days with sleepovers in two or three person tents.
The participants start off in Sisimiut and moves in the direction of the inland ice to a camp in the wilderness, where they are going to spend both nights.

How hard the race is depends on the weather; blizzard or sunshine, the Arctic Circle Race can offer both.
