Viking Raid 450 Denmark, 2017 - CANCELED

Viking Raid 450, CANCELED

The toughest and the longest adventure race competition organized in Denmark - ever.

 

Viking Raid 450 is a sport event where teams of four must travel minimum 450 km, in less than 72 hours, by practicing various disciplines/sports activities, and that has to be done non-stop.

 

Competition strategy, e.g. speed, relaxation, sleep, food etc. is up to the teams themselves. During the competition the participants must prove their psychical and physical preparedness, individual skills as well as their ability of team cooperation. Even if only one member cannot overcome the difficulties of the competition and quits, the effort of the whole team is over.

 

This Viking Raid adventure race will take place in the eastern part of Denmark and the itinerary is shown just hours before the start of competition.

 

The race is a part of the Danish Adventure Race Cup and the European cup AREuroSeries.
