NEW: Strong Viking Christmas Challenge! In times of Corona we have developed the Christmas activity for you and your friends/family! Participate in the Christmas Edition, get an EXTRA Beanie/Bandana/Björn Borg Tee FREE of shipping and challenge your friends/family to participate! Who do you challenge?
December, the month of family, friends, good food and drinks! More than ever we yearn to spend time with others during the o-so cozy Christmas period. Unfortunately, the coronavirus is still (partly) with us and keeps us from celebrating Christmas on a large scale with the ones we love, like other years. That is why we are proud to introduce the Christmas activity of 2020: Strong Viking Christmas Edition!
The Christmas Challenge works the same way as the popular Strong Viking Virtual Editions. Buy a ticket, start your workout from your own front door and send in your results! Your result will be processed in the results page, you will receive your well-deserved Christmas Edition certificate and of course your point for the Medal-for-LIFE system! Of course you can also send your result automatically through our link with Strava. Curious how that works? Sign up and follow the manual!
Your performance will be assessed with a level between 1 and 16! Which level you achieve, is up to you! Check here the overview of the different disciplines from which you can choose and an overview of the number of kilometres per level!
Make sure that this year you can still be together with those you love, but instead of sitting at the table we will do so with a healthy, sporty challenge this year! Health and vitality are more important than ever. A healthy lifestyle reduces the risk of contracting diseases and viruses and also helps to get rid of this year's extra corona-kilos! So make sure you get the new year off to a good start and challenge your friends/family to the Strong Viking Christmas Edition!
December is the month of sharing and giving and therefor you will receive one of the three EXTRA's FREE of shipping when you participate in the Christmas Challenge! Wear your Beanie, Björn Borg Tee and/or Bandana during your workout, send us your participation photo and assure yourself of a place in our Strong Viking Christmas Edition aftermovie! Together we will make it a healthy Christmas in 2020! Even though we are not together, we do this WITH each other! Be part of the Viking Christmas challenge!

Vikings are (still) everywhere!
Even though we haven't been able to meet each other at our editions for a year, we still want to end the year together with you in style with a special "Vikings are still Everywhere - Chrismas special"!
'Vikings drink their beer in Walhalla' is the battlecry you normally shout along loudly, directly after finishing on top of the Walhalla Steps. Now that we haven't been able to celebrate that toast moment LIVE, we would like to ask you to share a photo with us AFTER your Christmas Challenge in which you digitally toast to a healthy end with your finish beer + Strong Viking shirt! We will make a compilation of all the photos and make sure that your toast photo will be included as well! Cheers to our organisation, participants and suppliers! Together we go out sporting & toasting the year! OORAH!
With a ticket you can choose to hike, run, cycle or mountain bike as far as possible. If you want to work at speed then choose the Viking100. See which level you can reach in our level overview (link).
Explanation viking 100 discipline
The Viking 100 discipline combines running with the viking100 exercises. First you choose the distance you want to run 4, 7, 13 or 19
- Beginner: 4K/50 = 4000 meters of running, with a total of 50 workout rehearsals (1x Viking50 after 4k)

The average speed determines your level.
If you want to know what the exercises are look below at the question "what is the Viking100?".
The Viking100 is a module set up by the organization of Strong Viking. It tests the physical fitness of our participants and helps you as a participant to determine which Strong Viking distance fits your fitness level the best!

5x Pull Ups
20x Squat jumps
30x Sit Ups
10x Push Up
20x Walking Lunges
If you do the 4k/50 you do the Viking50

YES! We ask our participants to share a screenshot/photo of their run/route afterwards! Fill out the form and complete your Virtual Edition challenge!
We recommend that you complete the Virtual Edition individually and avoid any risk areas! If you really want to do the challenge together with a friend, always keep a minimum distance of 1.5 metres and observe the measures given by the government and the RIVM! Always think about your own safety and that of others around you!
It doesn't matter which of the four days you complete your Virtual Edition, as long as it's on one of the four dates listed in the title above! After each day, a daily summary is shared with the total number of kilometers ran by all Vikings together! #strongertogether!
INDEED IT WILL! If you are entitled to a Strong Viking medal, you will get your Strong Viking medal sent home after the event!
During the Virtual Editions you can choose between a 'Basic' and/or a 'Premium' ticket. Both tickets count towards the Medal-for-LIFE system! However, when purchasing a Premium ticket you will also receive an official Strong Viking Finisher T-shirt afterwards!
