Arctic Circle Race


It takes an enormous collective effort to ensure that the world’s toughest ski race is a success. Every year, over two-hundred volunteers are involved behind the scene. Several months before the race has even started.

It is great fun to be an official, though it is fairly hard work. Especially the last two weeks before the race are tough; everybody works day and night to have everything ready for the race.

Apart from it being a personal challenge, being a volunteer also means the chance to acquire new qualifications which may be employed in one’s line of work. At the official meetings the ACR spirit and the commitment grow. Moreover, technical problems are solved by small specialized groups.
