Have you heard of checkpoint race concept? It’s one of the most traditional students’ activities in Finland. You will be divided into small groups of students and handed out a map. During the race your team will be completing various of fun tasks given by the checkpoint holders. It’s not a serious sport event, the main idea is to have a lot of fun and make new friends! It’s also a good chance to get to know Rovaniemi and all the cool places better. The checkpoint race takes place outside so make sure to dress according to the weather! Put your best attitude on and come join us! Please make sure to arrive on time.
