Run Like a Viking Virtual Challenge


August 1-31, 2022


5K/10K/Half Marathon: $40

From August 1-31, let the Museum inspire you to keep moving and remain active, while having fun with your friends and family! Participants can choose between a 5K, 10K, or half-marathon challenge race. International participation is encouraged! Because this race is virtual, you can walk with your family, run with your friends, or pound the pavement solo anywhere in the world.

Log your miles at as you run outside, walk on a treadmill, bike, kayak, skateboard—whatever way you move counts toward your mileage. Bonus points if you do it while dressed like a Viking! All entrants will receive a custom Run Like A Viking T-shirt, racing bib, and two (2) general admission tickets (expire August 2023) to the National Nordic Museum. 

**Packet Pick Up/Mailing: If you select to pick up your packets from the Museum, please allow three businesses days before coming in. Race packets can be picked up from the Visitor Services desk during normal Museum operating hours (Tues-Sun: 10am-5pm). If you selected to have your race packet shipped, please allow a few days for delivery.

Packets are now available at the Museum and have been mailed out to those who selected that option. We will continue to send out packets throughout August! You still have time to Run Like a Viking.

Update August 18 

The following size t-shirts are SOLD OUT: small, medium, and large. We will continue to fill packets with remaining t-shirts until those sizes are gone too.
