His prep in Östersund is complete and now it’s off to the Arctic Circle.
Carsten Unger, our MAHR’S BRÄU MAN ON A MISSION, sets off for Lapland. There, in Jokkmokk, Sweden, he will spend most of his time training hard in preparation to compete in the Red Bull Nordenskiöldsloppet on March 30th; the furthest and one of the toughest cross-country races in the world.
He represents Bamberg, the Wunderburg and Mahr’s Bräu, but most of all: himself. As reported in our previous blog article a few weeks ago, this is a serious physical and mental challenge, and that is why it is all the more important that Carsten knows who is behind him! Namely us 🙂 For the move to Jokkmokk and the upcoming training for the race, we will be crossing all our fingers and toes!
The next race for Carsten, before the Red Bull Nordenskiöldsloppet, is the Vasalauf, and he is well prepared. In his last race, the Haldo Hansson’s Minne – a race in honor of Haldo Hansson – Carsten’s time was 2:24:49 for 42 kilometers (26.1 miles). He has placed 14th in his age group out of 45 and may start the Vasalauf in the 4th heat.
