Come Dressed To Conquer
Nordic Viking Warriors is the theme of the day. Best costume of the day wins a Warrior Prize.

The Course
Think of yourself as a Nordic Warrior conquering these challenging, yet runnable trails! You are the hero of the day! The course is set on the trails of Chestnut Mountain Resort – the same hills you ski in the winter! You’ll be treated to majestic views of the mighty Mississippi River and you will see Iowa and Wisconsin across the river! Look forward to the evening, eating a delicious finisher meal prepared by Chestnut Mountain Resort restaurant while watching the grand sunset on the Mississippi horizon. What more could you ask for?!

This is not your PR course, but you will feel good about the miles you knock out here! Looped course that brings you back to a jammin’ party every time. DJ, music, and FUN after party! There are even prizes for the after party. Can you dance after running? Sure you can… bust a move and you just might win a prize!

Chip Timed
Heavy metal, 3-D Bad Ass Warrior finisher medal for all runners! Whoo-hoo!
Choose to be a warrior trail runner, or join the race day party early and cheer on runners the rest of the day. Both options will be a fun time! Race day is your challenge! With all the great race day energy, you may find you can run farther than you ever thought!

Awards
Overall Male and Female – 1st, 2nd, and 3rd awards.
Age Group Awards – 10 year age spans.
Special prize! Best Warrior costume wins a big trophy! Male and Female.
