Number bibs and time chips?
Be at the venue in time and claim your number bib and time chip. There may be some waiting time as we often have around 5.000 athletes in our races. Bring your valid ID. Each person must get his or her own starting kit personally. The time chip (that is in the kit) should be attached to your right foot ankle. If you are not sure how to, ask us and we will show you how.
How to make changes – race form, name of team etc?
It is easy to make adjustments and changes through your account. This includes changes of race form (individually or team) as well as change or add team name. Click here to log in to our races.
How to add new members to a team?
Find the team in the team list by scrolling and add yourself as you sign up for the race. You chose how you want to compete – individually or as a team – in the sign up system.
Please note that it is not possible to add more team members to your team if that starting group is full. In this case if you wish to add more team members, the members of the team have to change starting group to a group that has open spots and then the new member can sign up for the team. We will not over fill starting groups as this does not benefit anyone.
Tough Viking – length and how hard is a race?
The length of the courses varies from venue to venue and each course is unique. The race at the Royal Djurgården is 15 km and the races in Gothenburg as well as Stockholm Stadium are around 8 km.
The courses are set in detail a few months prior to start and are publicized here and at our Facebook page.
Remember that a Tough Viking race is anything but a flat walk in the park. Be prepared. Train. Hard.
Men, Women, Elite and as a Team. Teams are mixed and you can set up the team as you prefer (all men, all women, mixed). A team is made out of at least 4 persons and the best 4 individual times are registered as the team final result.
Time and time chip?
You could see this as a race and go for the best possible time, however many just aim at getting through our amazing and challenging course. It is all up to you how you will see it.
In the start kit you get a time chip and this should be attached around the right foot ankle.
How to get to the race and parking spaces?
We recommend that you use the public transportation system as parking spaces are generally scarce.
How to find my way around the course?
The course is marked with strips and it is easy to find your way around. You can always ask our obstacle captains if you are unsure or need tips on how to claim the course. We have maps of the course online as well at the starting area.
How warm is the water?
During spring time (April and May) the water temperature in the Nordic countries is normally 7-9 degrees Celsius. In June it can be as low as 12 degrees and during July and August the temperature often climbs to 18-20 degrees Celsius. During September it generally falls to 15-18 degrees.
