Møns Klint Adventure Race 2017

ONCE AGAIN IN 2017 WE ARE ORGANISING THE MØNS KLINT ADVENTURE RACE. SATURDAY 10 JUNE 2017 WILL SEE THE 7TH COMPETITION - IT’S TIME FOR SOME MAJOR CHALLENGES IN THE WONDERFUL NATURE!

The motto of Møns Klint Adventure has always been: “The best place to watch the race is your own back garden.” We have attempted to capture that experience in the film below from 2015. What you see in the video is what you will experience personally: the dramatic cliff, the pebbly beach, the turquoise water and the hilly Klinteskoven forest!

Follow the race’s Facebook page for all the latest news about the race. Here you can see route updates, photos from previous years and maybe a tip or two about this year’s course.
