The track included tough climbs, deep snow, cargo net climbing, carrying logs, running up and down the super pipe, climbing over massive walls and huge wooden coils and running up a 5m high ramp made out of snow. Two obstacles were designed by the Finnish Defence Forces including a physically and mentally challenging, over 10m long Quinchee snow tunnel. At the end of the race the participants jumped into an arctic ice water tank!
