Thank you for joining what will be the craziest SUP Event in Europe this year - The Midsummer Viking Challenge 2019 in Copenhagen, Denmark. Saturday, June 22. and Sunday, June 23. in front of 'Kajakhotellet'.
Each team will consist of three to five paddlers in this unique 24-hour team relay challenge. It will be up to each team to decide how often they will switch between their paddlers, with the
goal to paddle as many kilometers as possible in 24 hours. The course will feature a five-kilometre-long lap around the artificial Copenhagen island of Amager Strandpark with nice flat water on the inside stretch and the slightly choppy waters of Øresund on the outside.

Paddling for Plastic Change
We want to use this Midsummer Viking Challenge to highlight the increasing level of plastic pollution in the oceans and across the beaches of the world.
Each team is therefore required to make donations per kilometre they paddle to the NGO Plastic Change, who campaign for less plastic pollution in the world. We strongly recommend that each team finds a sponsor that can help with this donation for a good cause. You can read more about the project at the event site, vikingchallenge.dk
The entry fee per team is normal 1.000 DKK (approx 130 euro). But if you sign up before April, 14th, you'll get a 20% discount. There will be goodie bags, great prizes, a lounge to chill in and a lot of other cool features. The event is still under construction, and we can't wait to reveal all sorts of fantastic news throughout the coming months. Until then, get your team ready - It's gonna be a ton of fun!!
Midsummer Viking Challenge is created by Casper Steinfath in cooperation with the Danish Surfing and Rafting Federation and Kajakhotellet.
