2nd Annual Obstacle Challenge at Woodbury Ski: September 23, 2017
Running, climbing, crawling, traversing, lifting, jumping, carrying, leaping…all in a days’ work for the legendary Norseman who aggressively conquered forbidden Norwegian and North Atlantic terrains! Once again, the annual Catalyst Viking Run let partyicipants prove their “warrior performance skills” in a 5 kilometer trek through the rugged, obstacle-laden slopes of Woodbury Ski.
This year, performance was measured via Chronotrack Systems race technology. This advanced system provided accurate start-to-finish timing of each entrant, and also Online Finish and Placement details for Viking Run 2017. Participants were rewarded with an official T-shirt, a medal confirming the accomplishment, and most importantly—bragging rights that they not only “weathered the grueling storm”... they brought it!
Runners were separated into 3 starting time waves, each two hours apart. Admission and time selection were reserved on a first-come, first-served basis. Below are the details regarding the 2017 Viking Run:
