Training events in cooperation with ÅEC
Give multisport a try or challenge your skills at one of our training events. In 2019 we offer several events across the country where you can meet others, find training partners and, for those who thrive on competition, race against the clock.
Read more below about these events between April and June 2019! And see our Facebook Calendar.
(1) Åre Pre Race (paddling + running + mountain biking)
