OPPORTUNITIES FOR TRAINING CLOSE TO THE EVENT CENTRE

The permanent track systems in central Piteå can be used for training:

Grisberget, 3.5km skate track – This area is also being used for the Model Event.

Furuberget, 3.5km skate track, 65.297939, 21.503217 – the tracks closest to the event centre.

A suggestion from the organisers is to leave the training tracks and instead follow the snowmobile tracks the head out amongst the islands of the archipelago direct from the event centre.

Training at the competition area is forbidden.

 

OPPORTUNITIES FOR TRAINING CAMPS

There is an opportunity for teams to hold training camps in Älvsbyn during the winter 2018/2019. The distance from Piteå is approximately 50 km and from Luleå airport approximately 60 km. A prepared track system will be made available in Älvsbyn in the period February – March.

The terrain at the training camp will be representative for the terrain at the competition area and the tracks will be prepared and maintained by the same person with responsibility for the track system during JWSOC. Help with training exercises and setting out of controls can also be arranged if requested.

For further information, estimated costs and bookings please contact: Sture Norén, sture.noren@afhs.nu
