Who we are

Changes to the crew organizing ÅEC
The crew behind Åre Extreme Challenge (ÅEC) regroups for the 2020 competition.

Henrik Weile and Martin Rask stays on with the addition of two Anders. Anders Nordström, founder of Åda Wild Boar Race and co-product developer of Vivo Barefoots trail series joins. He will focus on the racecourse along with other projects. Also joining is Anders Wiblom, with a long background in tourism and high-level alpine events. He will focus on Race Office and timing.
