Organisation

Vikingarännet is run by a secretariat commissioned by the organizing bodies, Friluftsfrämjandet and Svenska Skridskoförbundet. The senior responsibility in the secretariat is held by the General Secretary (GS). 

The limited company, Vikingarännet Marknads AB (VRMAB) is commissioned to undertake the event, sponsorship and marketing work for the race. VRMAB is controlled by a board with representatives from the organisations, Friluftsfrämjandet and Svenska Skridskoförbundet. Here, the Managing Director (MD) is in charge.

The co-operating associations are responsible for carrying out most of the work. There are about 300-400 stewards involved in the work of Vikingarännet. The associations will be reimbursed by Vikingarännet for the costs of this work. Below is a list of the categories required for Vikingarännet. One (or more) of the associations have responsibility for planning and execution, in addition to clearing up after the race.

The role of stewards is first offered to the organizing bodies (Friluftsfrämjandet and Svenska Skridskoförbundet). If some of the stewards’ functions in Vikingarännet can not be carried out by these organisations, these functions will be offered to organisations outside Vikingarännet.
