Dæhlie participates in Arctic Circle Race

Norwegian Bjørn Dæhlie, former Olympic, World Championship, and World Coup winner in cross-country, has decided to participate in the massive Arctic Circle Race on Greenland.

The race runs from March 26 to 28 in Sisimiut, Greenland. This is one of the few races that Dæhlie has not won.

160 kilometres
The Arctic Circle Race is taking place for the seventh consecutive year at Sisimiut on Greenland’s 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.

The world’s hardest race
Already at its premier in 1997, the race was characterized as the world’s hardest cross-country race, and it is so definitely a race that requires great endurance if the participants are even manage to complete it. How hard the race is depends on the weather; blizzard or sunshine, the Arctic Circle Race can offer both.
