4th edition of the unique race, that is a compact version of Ötillö style racing in Finland.

Race follows closely an ancient Russian border and features 25km fast runs on trails and countryside roads and 6km of challenging swims, mostly in the beginning of the course. Something that has become a heart of this race.
Starting this is race is unique experience, finishing it in Strömfors is like coming home,as welcoming as it gets in endurance racing.
