TOUGH VIKING is the leading and largest Obstacle Race in Scandinavia. We have large races also in Russia (Moscow, July 30, 2016) and France (Paris, October 1, 2016). The obstacles are massive and consist of i.e fire, water, electricity, mud, monkey bars and barbed wire set out along a challenging route. The set up of obstacles depends on the country and regulations on the different locations. The obstacles are designed together with the Swedish elite maritime special forces unit Kustjägarna.
