The participants were taken near the actual course to have a real experience in addition to the theoretical lectures. The purpose of the camp was to give last piece of advice about surviving the race. “The trainings are about different survival skills and we have been prepared for everything that could happen during the race. It’s important to understand what works in this cold and what shouldn’t be done,” said Juht just before a field exercise on how to melt water.
“One thing is for sure – you must not sweat,” said Juht.During the first day participants were showed how to set up a camp, cross the river and deal with the extreme cold.
