Catalyst Viking Run 2017

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 lets you prove your “warrior performance skills” in a 5 kilometer trek through the rugged, obstacle-laden slopes of Woodbury Ski.

This year, performance will be measured and posted via Chronotrack Systems race technology, providing online details and times that participants can access and share. Dare to participate, and you’ll be rewarded with an official T-shirt, a medal confirming your accomplishment, and most importantly—bragging rights that you not only “weathered the grueling storm”... you brought it!

Participation is limited, and runners will be separated into 3 starting time waves, each two hours apart. Admission and time selection will be reserved on a first-come, first-served basis. To ensure your noble place in this epic event, reserve entry today!
