About the Arctic Race of Norway
The Arctic Race of Norway (ARN) is a four-day road race held every year in August in Northern Norway’s magnificent scenery. Created in 2013, the event has continuously developed and is now established as Scandinavia’s main international cycling event, and one of Norway’s most important sports events. Thanks to its high level of organizational, media and sporting performance, the event is part of the UCI ProSeries, the second highest division of cycling races. Each year, several Tour de France teams and some of the world’s greatest cycling stars participate in the ARN and fight for the race’s iconic prizes. One of the event’s fundamental values is to federate across geographical and political barriers. The ARN is a free, accessible and inclusive event. It does not require any important infrastructure or facility but uses the most beautiful stadium in the world: the stunning roads of Northern Norway.
