Less talking, more walking - join Arcada's team in the walking race!

The autumn is a great time to enjoy the beautiful nature and the warm sunshine. Arcada and ASK challenges everyone to attend in this years national "Walking Race" (Kävelykilometrikisa in Finnish) as a continuum on the cycling race we had this summer. In this campaign we will together as a team collect kilometres and/or minutes that we have walked during 1.9.-31.10.2020 and playfully compete against other teams in Finland. You can report all the kilometres that you walk or run outdoors.
