Unfortunately, the COVID-19 virus prevents us from organizing large-scale Strong Viking events like you are used from us. Because of this, you will not be able to attend any of our events at one of the famous Strong Viking venues in 2020. That's why we have come up with something NEW to bring our events to your home!
New in the Strong Viking family: The Virtual Edition! During this unique Virtual Edition(s) you will run one the the well-known Strong Viking distances: 4km Beginning, 7km Lightning, 13km Warrior or 19km Beast in your own environment. Next to the running part, you will need to complete fysical exercises from our famous Viking100! We proudly present the following distances during the Virtual Edition:
Of course the new Virtual Edition counts for the Medals-for-life-system! So did you participate in one of earlier Strong Viking editions this year? Then you will receive your medal (the week after you finished) by post at your home! Didn't you participated yet this year but are you still willing to collect your medals? Then of course you can run two Virtual Editions for your first piece of honor! A reward to be proud of! A ticket for the Strong Viking Virtual Edition costs only €11.95!
Choose your distance, complete the challenge and upload your running app route map, to complete this unique challenge!
Please always be aware on the safety regulations:
- Participate individually and/or at most with one friend, but always keep 1.5 meters distance from each other!
- Avoid busy areas such as forests and recreation areas, plan your own route and start from the front door of your house!
- Take others into account and only pass if the 1.5 meter rule stays secured!
- Don't push yourself to your limit. This will temporarily weakens your resistance!
- Always adhere to the regulations that apply in your country / region!
The Virtual Edition takes place during the weekends that we would normally organize a Strong Viking edition! We have chosen to spread the Virtual Edition over 4 days, so that thousands of people do not go out on the same day, which would be against the imposed measures! We ask all participants to respect the measures and to only participate by observing the measures! Set yourself a goal for this summer and participate in one of the Virtual Editions!

Always think about your own safety and that of others around you!
