For our first edition race in Sweden there is one survival course available. It takes place immediately before the MLAU. This offers you the opportunity to do a course and the race on one trip. Other advantages of participating in a course in the Swedish Lapland are:
- you give yourself some time for acclimatisation
- for the outdoor parts of the course you are on the same type of trails you will be on during the MLAU
- the courses are organised by people with substantial winter survival skills, specific to the area our race will be in
If time and budget allow for it you can of course also do a course one winter and then come back to do the MLAU the next winter.
The course aims at teaching you the skills to become confident and proficient at working in cold temperatures allowing you to maximise your potential in the MLAU or similar events and expeditions.
