Laponia Triathlon 67°N is a full-distance triathlon above the Arctic Circle. Participants from around the world gather in Gällivare to swim, bike and run under the midnight sun.
The race begins with the participants swimming 3.860 m, after that they get on the bike for 180 km and it ends with running for 42 km. It sure sounds like a challenge.
The race organisers have experience from participating in over thirty full-distance triathlons, swim-run races and numerous other endurance races. They have also been involved in the organisation behind World Cup cross-country skiing events in Gällivare.
– Through this experience, we have learned much and come up with new ideas that we bring with us into the Laponia Triathlon.
