    To Staff:
    It’s completely unclear both from the 100%-information-free video as well as the event’s main website what it’s actually about (max distance in # of days? Some kind of point system combining distance & time? etc.)

    When publishing this kind of item, please add value by giving a summary in a few sentences, otherwise what’s the point?
