Thank you all for joining and sharing!

Save the date:
GLOBAL FAT VIKING is an annual event - next round is 24th - 26th of January 2025!

You don't have to sign up!

Join - it's FREE! Make your friends join too!

You will get a finisher sticker from Norway! (you will have to do your part to receive a sticker!)
You can register your rides after the GFV weekend to apply for a sticker.
Link for registration of your rides will be published on Monday after the event.
Please read the rules below.

The rules are as simple as last time:
Join the Fat Viking race discussion group on Facebook.
Print out your race plate/ starting bib and write your name on it (we will publish a pdf raceplate in January)
Then ride your fatbike between Friday 24th of January 2025 at 12pm (12.00) and Sunday 25th of January 6pm (18.00).
The accumulated kilometres between Friday 12pm and Sunday 6pm count:
FV50 finisher = you have ridden at least 50km
FV100 finisher = you have ridden at least 100km
FV150 finisher = you have ridden at least 150km
(There is no prize for being a super-Viking and riding more than 150km, but go for it if you want)
You need to ride a FATBIKE (tire width 3.8 inch or wider, manufacturers label).
Ride wherever you want, create your own course - loops, out and back or whatever you please.
Ride unsupported (no support crew), but feel free to make use of commercially available shops and institutions on your way. You can sleep and eat at home of course!
Group rides are very welcome! …and so are Viking costumes!
Your ride needs to be documented:
-its length (picture of gps display, Strava, etc)
-its style (at least 3 pictures of yourself and/or your bike in several locations, at least one picture of you and your starting bib/ race plate – doesn’t have to be on the bike, you can hold it up and take a selfie.
Documentation is to be published on Facebook and shared to the Fat Viking race discussion group.
You are yourself responsible for your safety. You need to make sure you obey to all rules and regulations that apply to the country and place where you are riding. This event is entirely on your own risk!

Let’s have as much fun as we can on the last weekend of January, make new friends, share the experience.
United we ride, even if we ride in different countries!

Scroll through the Facebook group's posts of the last years to see how much fun this can be.
