Competitors from across North America will converge on Nitehawk Recreation Area this Saturday for the 1st annual Zulu challenge. Nitehawk assistant general manager Johnathan Clarkson explains what Zulu is.
“It is an obstacle race featuring about 35 obstacles including walls, and different strength challenges from carrying logs above your head to having to wade through water almost waist deep. It is over 11 kilometres of hill terrain at the ski hill.”
Around 200 competitors will take off every half hour from the start line, starting at 9 am Saturday morning, with the final group leaving at 1:30. Clarkson says they will have their cafeteria and lounge open for spectators, as well as a barbecue and beer gardens on site.
