Mt. Ski Gull to host extreme obstacle course in July

The Paul Bunyan Extreme 5K is scheduled July 13, 2013, at Mt. Ski Gull.

Participants will be faced with 16 challenging obstacles spread over a 3.2-mile course covered in hills, mud, and swamps. Obstacles include swinging across mud pits, climbing over walls and up hills, and conquering the giant slip and slide.

All of the obstacles are designed to be safe for ages 10 and up, and challenging to everyone. Wearing costumes and forming teams with co-workers, family and friends, community groups, and training partners is encouraged.

Heats will leave every half hour from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. You can register as an individual, team, or parent/child team.

Trophies will be awarded for different categories. Food and beverages will be available.

A portion of the proceeds will go directly to Mt. Ski Gull to support and promote the facility.
