Sauna Marathon

2 February, Otepää

There is nothing that Estonians love more than sauna! And here is their chance to prove it. Sauna teams may have up to four people, and the object of the competition is to stay in the sauna for at least three minutes. The first prize goes to the team that entered the sauna the most amounts of times within the shortest amount of time.

The sauna race will start at 12.00-13.00 in Pühajärve Spa & Holiday Resort (Otepää, Pühajärve) and finish at Nuustaku pub (Nüpli village, Otepää) at 17.30, the awards ceremony will also take place in Nuustaku pub.
