Your first Virtual Edition!
As everyone knows, Corona unfortunately still throws a spanner in the works for the (sports) events industry. As much as we would like to, we don't have a specific forecast yet when we can organize LIVE events again. But, if you Vikings can't come to us, we will come to you, won't we?
That's how the idea for the first Virtual Edition was born in May! In the meantime, more than 18.000 participants worldwide have joined the Virtual Edition challenge! A number that we’re very proud of!
Have you not yet taken part in a Virtual Edition and/or is it not yet completely clear to you how it works? Check out the step-by-step plan below and find out how you can take on a virtual Strong Viking challenge!
1. Disciplines & levels)
Strong Viking's mission is to make people physically and mentally stronger. We want people to keep themselves fit for a lifetime! That's why we've added other sports disciplines to the Virtual Editions besides the Viking100 (running with exercises): Hiking, Cycling, Mountain biking and regular running (without Viking100 exercises).
You choose which discipline you want to do during the Virtual Edition! After completing your workout, you will receive a level (from 1 to 15) based on the distance travelled and your average speed. Your score will be uploaded into the ranking and you will receive a certificate of your performance by e-mail! So you can compare your result with thousands of people all over te world.
2. Premium / Basic ticket.
There are two types of tickets available, a Premium ticket and a Basic ticket. The difference lies in the fact that with the Premium ticket, in addition to your medal, you will actually receive your well-deserved finisher shirt at home afterwards! A participation in the Virtual Edition counts for your Medals-for-LIFE system! So if you earn a medal with your participation, you will receive it in the week after the event!
3. Results (Strava/Form)
Sending your result to us can be done in two ways. You can easily link with our partner Strava, so that your score will be automatically uploaded into our system directly after pressing the stop button in your Strava-app! If you prefer not to have an app on your phone and to enter your score manually, you can of course also do so via the specially developed form. Immediately after uploading your score you will receive your reached level by e-mail and your performance will be displayed in the ranking system! More information about how to enter your result will be send to your mailbox, after you signed up for one of the Virtual Editions.
4. Virtual Edition, 4-Days Challenge & Christmas Challenge!
In the meantime, in addition to the regular Virtual Edition, several new Virtual challenges have been created. Including the 4-Days Challenge and this December there will be a real Christmas Challenge! We can hear you thinking: ‘What do these editions mean?’. Maybe the title of the 4-Days Challenge already tells you something, but the intention is to make as many kilometers as possible in four days’ time. The concept is derived from the Dutch 4-Days challenge, in which thousands of people all over the world walk four days in a row in the city of Nijmegen! In order to offer this challenge to a wider audience and to make it more challenging, our 4-Days Challenge offers the possibility to purchase a Multi-ticket. This allows you to decide for yourself how you want to make the kilometers. This can be by foot, with the Viking100, by bike, mountain bike etc. As long as you make kilometers every day.
The NEW Christmas Challenge concept will be launched in December! More information about this challenge will be published soon, but we will make sure that despite the corona measures, we will still be able to take on a great challenge together as Vikings! Who do you challenge to join you this Christmas?
