Strong Viking Water Edition 2019



As the organization of Strong Viking describes; The Strong Viking run is not a competition but a challenge. A unique experience, suffering together with a smile. We participated with more than 110 colleagues from the Netherlands and Central Europe.


This year we were able to train for twelve weeks in our own Planon Gym. Under the guidance of the enthusiastic trainers of Speijers Sport, we trained 4 nights a week for this great challenge.


Saturday June 15th the colleagues were very excited to start the Strong Viking Water Edition in the Berendonck in Nijmegen. The beginning was together but once on the course you had a choice of three distances;

Lightning 7 KM (20+ obstacles), Warrior 13 KM (30+ obstacles) or Beast 19 KM (40+ obstacles).


We had one common goal with all our colleagues: to overcome the obstacles with a smile and finish in one piece. Everyone helped each other, they laughed a lot, worked on teambuilding, and all this in combination with water and lots of mud. There were quite a few spectacular water obstacles to overcome, including a 12 meter high Fjord Drop, Flying Ragnar and Iceman.


At the finish there were cold beers waiting for us and we also received a nice Planon Challenge 2019 medal.

For all Planon Vikings; Congratulations to all of you for conquering this spectacular challenge and see you next year at the Planon Challenge 2020.
