Silva Kong Vinter - A True Winter Race
Silva Kong Vinter is one of the biggest Adventure Races in Denmark and the race date on January 12th makes it a true winter Adventure Race.
This year the start will be in Helsingør and move to the near by forest and showcase some of the ancient history of Denmark, maybe teams will get to visit Kronborg where Shakespeare’s Hamlet took place. Something special about this years’ route is that a passport is mandatory equipment, so maybe we have found some higher ground outside Denmark. The race will also include some technical coasteering stages.
The Masters route has an estimated winning time of 14 hours. The Challenge and U21 will be won in about 8 hours. The race includes running, coasteering, mountain biking, climbing and a kayak stage. Both distances have a maximum time of 23 hours, which allows most teams to complete the entire route.
There is a Free entry to the ARES race Yeti Adventure Challenge on a lottery between all those who complete the full course at the Masters distance.
Its possible to rent bikes at the race. So travel can be easy and there are trains from the airport almost to the start location. There will also be some overnight discounts before and after the race.
The race is organised by Lars Bukkehave and Mikkel Frese who both have 15 years of Adventure race experience from over 100 races and 10 in the ARWS.
The Danish elite teams are always at the start line and many international teams take part in the race. In the past Multisport.fi, Sweco, Ace Estonian Adventure and Swedish Armed Forces Adventure Team have been in the race.
