Saturday 04 November 2023 it is time for the most beautiful ending of the Strong Viking season. On the famous Viking terrain of the Berendonck in Wijchen (near Nijmegen), you have the chance to be at the start of the Strong Viking Trail Run.
The Trail Run is an offroad running event in a beautiful and varied area including heathland and sand drifts. You can choose from the familiar Strong Viking distances: 4km, 7km, 13km. The 19km is a little longer during the Trail Run and you will run a half marathon. The 42km Trail Marathon is also part of this edition! During the Trail Run you will only have to face the natural elements and obstacles, such as streams, tree trunks and hills.
Will you join us to end the season with a wonderful Trail Run through the beautiful nature? Of course your participation counts towards your Medals for Life! Score your medal at this run or gain an extra point to kick start next year!
