Once again, Borrefylkingen has the honour of inviting you to participate in “The Battle of Borre”. In 2020, the battle takes place during the Borre market organised by Borre Vikinglag. Yes, you are correct, this means that we are now hoping that this could be an annual event.
The dates are 3-5 July, but there is possible to stay at the market for the entire week. During the week, there will be organised trainings.
The Borre market is taking place in Borre Norway, and is one of the largest Viking markets in Norway. It is also the location of one of Europe’s largest collection of Viking age monumental grave mounds, so it is well worth the visit just for that.
The battles will be fought in Norwegian western style (BoB17), with clean fighting. Hitsones for all weapons will be thighs, torso and upper arms for stabbing and cutting hits. any hits not made with the edge/point of the weapon is not counted.
There will be a total of 6 battles during the event, 2 battles Friday, 2 battles Saturday and 2 battles Sunday.
