After more than 106 hours of non-stop racing, Swedish Armed Forces Adventure Team has become winners of Nordic Islands Adventure Race “Valhalla” 2019!
On Thursday morning at precisely 4:11, a usually quiet park in the centre of Ålesund city suddenly came to life as SAFAT came hand in hand to celebrate their 667km journey from Sweden to Norway. They have crossed countless mountains, valleys, rivers, fjords and roads; were both freezing and overheating but nothing stopped them from getting to the finish line and to do so in the fastest time of all!
This victory also marks their third consecutive win at the Nordic Islands Adventure Races – a true showcase of team’s skills, endurance and consistency!
