MEDALS: Each stage earns a 4 inch golden medal! That's right, you get 7 huge ass medals for completing this monster. Even better? They fit together to form a massive golden shield! The race follows the end-of-age battle of Norse Mythology pitting gods against destroyers! Legend tells that the history was recorded on a large golden shield to preserve the story for generations to come. Sadly the golden shield was destroyed by a strike of the Mjolnir thus shattering it into seven shards...Complete all seven stages and reassemble the shards for Thor, Jormungandr, Odin, Fenrir, Freyr, Surtur and the 3 Roosters thus restoring the story! Once assembled this shield is 8 inches in diameter! A trophy so epic only it can commemorate an effort so large! (Each team will receive 1 medal per stage regardless of team size).
PRIZES: Each team member will get a t-shirt with our custom pen and ink artwork included in the race fee. Extra shirts may be ordered at an additional cost. Upon completion of stages teams will receive a Digital badge. The medal shard corresponding to the stage will be mailed in April when the race is done.
