Escape from Svartholma - Sunday 2.8.2020

4th edition of the unique race, that is a compact version of Ötillö style racing in Finland. This archipelago race starts from the yard of Svartholma fortress built in 1794 and finishes to Strömfors iron mill village in the front of Strömfors Outdoor Factory. 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.
