Sunday 31 January
NEW: 28, 29, 30 & 31 January, the Strong Viking Virtual Edition is BACK - including all the different disciplines! Set yourself a goal for the new year and challenge yourself with a fysical challenge in these special times! The Virtual Edition counts for your Medals-for-LIFE!
After the success of the last Virtual Editions, we added the different disciplines to all our Virtual Editions! This makes it possible, besides the Viking100, to do the Virtual Edition via one of the following disciplines: Mountain biking (MTB), Cycling, running and/or hiking! So do you have friends / family / colleagues who always wanted to participate in a Virtual Edition, but for whom the Viking100 was just too heavy? Send them a message that they can also participate during this Virtual Edition and start earning their Strong Viking medals!
How many kilometer can you make in one day?
Of course the Virtual Editions counts for the Medals-for-life-system! So did you participate in one of earlier Strong Viking editions this year or last year? Then you will receive your medal (the week after you finished) by post at your home! Didn't you participated yet in a Strong Viking event 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/disciplines, complete the challenge and upload your running app route map, to complete this unique challenge!
IMPORTANT! THINK ABOUT SAFETY!
- 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!
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).
