The popularity of the GIR has steadily increased since the first edition presented in 2014.

Many teams and media will be back to relive the excitement. Some will even be present for the third time in as many years.


Beyond the exceptional scenery, crystal clear salmon rivers, extraordinary shoreline, immense forests and dignified welcome raiders receive from the local population, what makes the GIR a unique event is the fact that 200 of the region’s young people are given the opportunity to take part in the first day of activities, alongside the teams that will complete the 300 km and 150 km courses.
