Host City

The 2020 race will set teams on a new adventure in Stockholm, Sweden, and the unique archipelago with 26,000 islands. The race will mix urban exploration with remote adventures in the archipelago and national parks. Teams will also be challenged with big rope skills sections and new navigational problems.

Why Stockholm?
Staffan; -We choose to come back to Stockholm because there is still much to explore and show here. We believe that bringing the races into the city will help teams with their sponsorships and make the sport more accessible. Also, hosting an ARWS and ARES event together in the same race will be something new and fresh. Our goal is to create a fair, tough, unique and different race from what racers are used to. Of course we keep include hotels and meals for all teams in the entry fee.
