The middle distance race on stage 3 takes place in picturesque Backsjö.
The longer courses start high up on the Slåtterberget mountain andhead mostly downhill towards the finish. Large portions of this stage's courses traverse a sparsely forested plateau and finish on the more detailed hillsides.
Runners on the shorter courses will get to experience an area of smaller hills with plenty of trails. Runnability will vary from sparse pine forest to denser areas of young saplings.
