News for stage 3

Today we will see even warmer weather, with it getting hot already in the morning – but thankfully, today there will also be a nice breeze that can cool it down a bit.

Also count on additional mountainous terrain. The forests west of Backsjö offer many big climbs!

Possibly is a bit biased, but the arena for third and fourth stages may be the most beautiful thing in O-Ringen history...


Sign up for the different closing parties. Info at the competitor service and also here on the website.


The elite runners who have a rest day today can, if they simply cannot resist, also participate today – in an enter-on-the-day.


On the Backsjö stage, the first aid tent is close to the finish, so it's easy to get there for any one who needs it. We urge you to use this first aid primarily, instead of visiting other health care centers because there are extra staff on the stage for this purpose.


Stage name: Social Democrats stage.

– Location: Backsjö, seven kilometers northwest of Örnsköldsvik.

– First start: 08:30.
