Are you ready for the toughest challenge of the year?
Have you got the stamina to swim in ice cold water? And then to crawl through mud, climb over sky-high fences and jump in and out of a container? And to finish off by running through a wall of electrical wires delivering 10,000 volts of electricity while water is sprayed all around? If that's the case, then Tough Viking is the race for you.
The course obstacles have been designed by specialists from the Swedish elite coastal defense unit Kustjägarkompaniet (Coastal Rangers), and include fire, ice, barbed wire and reeds. And if that's not enough, there is an American Football team positioned along the course, effectively blocking your path.
Tough Viking races take place in Gothenburg, Malmö, Stockholm and Åre.
