Stafettvarvet:Do something fun and healthy together!

Stafettvarvet has grown bigger and more popular year after year to become a real success. Companies gather colleagues and customers to mingle and run together. Friends challenge each other and families form teams together. The tent village is also a popular element and many companies choose to gather around their tent for pep rally before the race and to enjoy a well deserved after run with the team after the race.
