Held in Veteran Acres Park, this is a race for the hearty! Three distances, a 5K, 15K and half marathon give runners a great opportunity to break up their winter hibernation with some competitive trail running. Racers choose between the Battle Axe of Ragnar Lothbrok or the legendary Ulfberht Viking Sword as their finishers medal, and there is a Viking Village with food and drink to warm everyone up afterwards.
