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".
