To be a Viking or to become one.
FAT VIKING is a WINTER ULTRA ENDURANCE event under somewhat more "controlled" circumstances than the Iditarod Trail Invitational.
The race course runs on snowmobile tracks, dogsledding trails, snowcovered roads and the cross country trail net around Geilo/ Skurdalen/ Dagali and it crosses the R7/ R40 road. Checkpoints are inside a heated building where basic food is offered along with the opportunity to rest. Several "bail out options" along the route are available in case of emergency/ abandoning the race.
Fat Viking is a non-commercial Geilo Sports Club (Geilo IL) event organized by the "FAT VIKING SOCIETY".
We organize this without getting payed. We do it for the love of the sport. Our effort is all worth it if you come back with a smile on your face, with an adventure behind you and a lot of stories to tell.
This is a chance to prove to yourself that you are stronger than you thought.
