Please read the ABOUT information, the MANDATORY GEAR list and RACE RULES before entering.

FAT VIKING is a WINTER ULTRA ENDURANCE event under somewhat more "controlled" circumstances than the Iditarod Trail Invitational.

The race course runs mainly on the cross country trail net around Geilo/ Skurdalen/ Dagali/ Ustaoset and it crosses the R7/ R40 road.
All checkpoints are inside heated buildings 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. We will highlight these at the pre-race meeting.

Fat Viking is a non-commercial Geilo Sports Club (Geilo IL) event organized by the "FATVIKING SOCIETY".


To be a Viking or to become one. 
Human endurance and human resilience*
150km of winter racing. A journey within yourself.

*(definition of resilience: "the power or ability to return to the original form, position, etc., after being bent, compressed, or stretched)
