The Kids’ Track will be present in Stockholm, Sweden on 27th August 2016 and in Helsinki, Finland on 10th September 2016. 

Monkey Bars by Lappset have already been seen in the Arctic Tough Viking Levi as well as in the Helsinki races in 2015. The obstacle convinced both competitors and organizers as well as received a great number of positive feedback regarding the obstacle itself and the challenge it offers.

The new and innovative Kids’ Track creates an opportunity to children and teens to experience Tough Viking on a smaller scale.
