500 kilometers on foot through the thick snow, pulling a sled with all the gears needed to survive in temperatures as low as minus 30 Degree Celsius.
It is not a running distance everyone can manage, but Jeff Lau is getting ready to brave it in less than three days. “I believe in running for a good cause,” says the elite ultra-marathon runner and also humanitarian.
Right now, the country is continuing to combat its efforts on fighting the Covid-19 pandemic, there should be ongoing investments and efforts to support other initiatives such as HIV treatments and education on HIV prevention.
This time around, Jeff will be raising money for the Pediatric AIDS Fund (PAP), a program that keeps children living with/affected by HIV in school and helps them thrive through education and social support.
The Montane Lapland Arctic Ultra will take place on snowmobile trails in Swedish Lapland. Start and finish are in the small town of Överkalix, in the Swedish province of Norrbotten.
Jeff will be going on a second and different loop of 315 km, again, heading north and then coming back to Överkalix. On both race distances, the athletes will travel on rivers, lakes, and through forests.
