Run Like A Viking Meet-Up Event



Calling all walkers, runners, and Viking lovers! Join Museum staff for our first ever Run Like a Viking Meet Up—don your RLAV t-shirt and complete your 5k commitment with a nice walk to Skål Beer Hall!

How can I join?

  • Sign up for any of the Run Like A Viking race options (5k, 7k, half marathon). All ages welcome!
  • Check in from 4:30-5pm at the Museum’s Visitor Services Desk and pick up your race packet (if you haven’t already).
  • Throw on your 2022 Run Like a Viking shirt and help contribute to our first ever Nordic Horde!
  • Walk with us down the Burke-Gilman Trail (route details below), with a stop at Skål for some tasty beverages (optional, but we hope you'll join).
  • Reservation is until 8pm, but participants are welcome to leave and head back to the Museum whenever they want!

The Route 

  • 3.1 miles
  • National Nordic Museum —> Ballard Elks —> Bergen Place —> Skål Beer Hall (beer break!) —> National Nordic Museum

Additional Info:

  • Participation does not include food/beverages. Nordic Horde members are responsible for their own purchases. However, Skål Beer Hall has generously offered 15% off your full bill for those rocking an RLAV shirt. We know what you're thinking—supporting local businesses AND getting a few steps in with good conversation? Where can I sign up?!
