Ja, du läste rätt en äkta simmaraton. The Viking 42+km är Vidösternsimmet (21+km) två gånger.

"We at Vidösternsimmet are proud to announce The Viking edition, or rather Viking addition +21+21km= +42km version of our event. We will offer 6 spots, invite only, to this race, and you are one of our special guests.

• Only senior Vidösternsimmet swimmers may qualify for the “Vido Viking”. (In other words: we must know the swimmer’s capacity well)
• Wetsuit optional
• A Viking inspired medal (or similar).

Included in the fee:
1 kayak + 2 kayakers for each swimmer. We will also include a support/patrol boot with crew during the night. 🏊‍♂️ 🛶 🚣‍♀️
In option

We will cast a new Viking inspired medal for this event.

• Individual start for each swimmer/pair and a kayaker, with the goal to reach Osudden at 07:00. (This also requires a swimmer who knows his/her body and capacity.) The second leg will be included and take advantage of the normal +21 km-event, with feeding stations, cheering volunteers and patrol boats.
