Short Courses

The FIGHTER course
(for beginners)

The route has been laid in order for it to be a different, entertaining and exciting race in the area around Silkeborg. Fighters will be a “star”-concept race centering around Papirfabrikken in Silkeborg. During the hours your team moves through the different disciplines, tries something new and experiences together, it should also be possible to have fun and get a few laughs. If you can walk/run 10 km and bike 20km, you are also able to complete the Fighter Course

The CHALLENGE course
(for experienced racers)

The challenge course is an A-B race, meaning there will be no loops, but the route continues from start to finish. There will be TAs along the way, where you will be given what you need at the next stage. Which also means that when you leave Papirfabrikken, you will not get back before the team crosses the finish line.

So what you need along the way, you have to bring along. We have been allowed to use nature in a different way this year, which has opened up some different disciplinary compositions. Therefore, you can look forward to some exciting, fun, challenging and different courses to this year’s YACS.
