Environment

Alingsås MTB Challenge is working towards becoming an environmental branded event via the foundation “Håll Sverige rent”. To us it is important to give our arena care in all aspects. We do this partially by sharing and informing about the campaign Naturen är vår arena.

Alingsås MTB Challenge wants to defend the environment that is our arena. Placing marked garbage zones at our liquid stations does this.

Alingsås MTB Challenge has chosen not to publish unnecessary information. Instead we are actively putting up information through social media and newsletters. We have also put in resources towards better waste disposal with the opportunity to sort waste and environmental branded electricity.

Other elements are KRAV-branded bananas and ecological coffee. During the event transportation will of course be via foot, bike or environmental friendly cars.

Liquid stations

We have placed 4 separate stations throughout the courses. You can find them marked on the event map.
