A cycling festival for the whole family
What is SNN Mini Arctic Race?
SNN Mini Arctic Race is a bike race for children and young people held during the Arctic Race of Norway and arranged by SpareBank 1 Nord-Norge. Entry is free and everyone who rides receives a specially designed green T-shirt and medal.
Who can enter?
- Children under 5 years (training wheel/tricycle class)
- Children 5-7 years
- Children 8-10 years
- Children 11-12 years
How far is the race?
The bike races are informal and are arranged in small heats and over short distances at all the event locations. The heats are in central areas and are seldom longer than 700 metres. The distances increase with age and will be announced at each location. This is something that everyone can join in with and the focus is on activity and a love of sports.
Safety is a top priority
Safety will be a high priority for us at the event. Vehicle traffic has thus been banned from all of the routes. Bike helmets are of course compulsory. Entrants participate in SNN Mini Arctic Race at their own risk
SpareBank 1 Nord-Norge wants to help encourage activity and diversity in the region, so supporting sports and culture forms the very core of the bank's social commitment.
"It is great to see that local ideas can develop into major, international public celebrations. The Arctic Race of Norway is a good example of this, and we are proud to have been part of the team from the very start," says Jan-Frode Janson, SpareBank 1 Nord-Norge's chief executive.
