Run Like a Viking Virtual Challenge


Aug 1 - 31, 2023


5K/10K/Half Marathon: $45

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 (sizes ranging from s-xxxl, while supplies last), racing bib, and two (2) general admission tickets (expire August 2024) to the National Nordic Museum. For more information about the National Nordic Museum please visit

**Packet Pick Up/Mailing: If you select to pick up your packets from the Museum, please allow three business 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.

Get ready to Run Like a Viking in 2023! And receive our latest t-shirt design later this summer!
