About This Activity

This is the 7th year for the Viking Challenge run. Previously it has been a 5K/10K only, but this year we are also including a 1-Mile fun run, so there is something for participants of all abilities. This event serves as a fundraiser for the soccer and cross country programs at Community High School.

The race begins and ends on the high school campus, and the course winds through surrounding neighborhoods (and backroads for the 10K).  All races start and end together, but split 1/2 mile into the race. The course has only a couple slight hills, but is mostly flat and fast. Past years have had 70-130 registrants. Prizes are given as follows: top 3 male and female overall finishers for each race receive a trophy. Top 3 male and female by age division receive medals in the 5K only. Age divisions are: 12 & under, 13-19, 20-29, 30-39, 40-49, 50-59, 60+. All participants 10 and under receive a medal too!

There will also be inflatable games and refreshments at the finish line. We hope you'll join us!
