“VALHALLA CHALLENGE” 5K Obstacle and Mud Run
OCTOBER 13, 2018

Come run the “VALHALLA CHALLENGE” Obstacle and Mud Run over 5K of Varied Terrain ranging from Flat to 45 Degree Slopes. This isn’t just another Run with Manmade Obstacles thrown up on level or rolling land. This is a 5k Viking Training Course that has over 30 Natural and Manmade Obstacles throughout several types of wooded terrain, open fields, and a run through CASTLE THOR and LOKI TOWN. This is a Great Challenge for Individuals, Teams, Corporate Groups, and Families! Come FLIRT, PILLAGE, and PLUNDER with the EMR Warriors.

The Valhalla Challenge is all about Challenging Yourself or using Teamwork instead of a race, so it will be self-timed. For those that want to watch their times and compete against each other, there will be Atomic Clocks at the Beginning and the End of the Challenge as well as every Mile at the Hydration Stations. When you register, pick your preferred time to start anywhere from 9:00 am to 5:00 pm in 1/2 Hour Increments and we will schedule you for that time if it is still open or the next available time that is open. GET YOUR TEAM or FAMILY TOGETHER and GET A LARGE TEAM DISCOUNT with FIVE RUNNERS!

THE COURSE covers 5k of Varied Terrain through different types of woods, open fields, and through a Wood Castle and Town with staggered Walls and Obstacles. The terrain varies from flat to 45 degrees and the paths are grass, dirt, and some lightly rocky. There is a mixture of over 30 Obstacles which include Climbing Walls, Tunnels, Ditches, Tire Run, Spider Web, Balance Logs, Mud Crawl, Climb over Large Logs, Wade through Shallow Pond, Climbing Banks, Spool Crossing, Barrel Crossing, Sandbag Carry, and Arm Dangle.
