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. 

Arcada promenerar tillsammans - kom med i kilometerkampen!

Hösten är ett ypperligt tillfälle att njuta av den vackra naturen och de varma solstrålarna. Därmed utmanar vi på Arcada och ASKen alla med i årets nationella  "Kävelykilometrikisa" (Promenad Kilometerkampen) som en fortsättning på cykelkampen vi hade i somras. I denna motionskampanj samlar Arcadas lag in kilometrar tillsammans och tävlar skojfullt mot andra organisationer i Finland under tiden 1.9.-31.10.2020. Du kan skriva in allt du gått eller löpt utomhus under dagen i minuter och/eller kilometrar.
