Minnesota Nut House Challenge 2017


2017 Minnesota Nut House Challenge presented by Active PT / July 15th and 16th.

Triton Events is excited for the 3rd Annual Minnesota Nut House Challenge presented by Active PT!  

This event will now take place over two days with four separate distances.

Totally Nuts Challenge:  You'll be running a 10K on Saturday morning, a 5K on Saturday evening and a 1/2 Marathon on Sunday morning.  Easy, right?

For those of you not up for being Totally Nuts, you can choose the

Half Cracked Challenge:  This challenge involves one day of racing.  You'll run a Saturday morning 10K and a Saturday evening 5K.

Kids Challenge / 1 Mile Challenge:  This challenge is three separate 1 mile runs that will take place 30 minutes before the 5K, 10K and 1/2 Marathon.

For those of you that are not up for the 1 Mile, Half Cracked or Totally Nuts Challenges, but would like to be part of the fantastic Nut House atmosphere, you can choose to run any individual race of:

5K, 10K or 1/2 Marathon:  These runners will receive an individual time for their race, a finisher medal and a t-shirt (if registered by June 24).  Top 5 overall finishers in the 5K, 10K and Half-Marathon will receive prizes from select partners.

There will be lots of fun activities going on all weekend.  We have plans for great music, several vendors will be in attendance to support this community event, and we'll have refreshments from Grand Rounds Brewing Company!  

Run for Inheritance of Hope- Triton Events will give a portion of each registration to Inheritance of Hope.  We would love to raise as much money as possible for this wonderful charity, so please consider any additional donations!  In 2016, Inheritance of Hope & Triton Events teamed up to bring in $40,000, and we want to far exceed that number in 2017!

Inheritance of Hope is a non-profit organization that inspires hope in young families facing the loss of a parent. Since 2008, families from 38 states have attended a life-changing Legacy Retreat®, an all-expense paid experience where families can create lifelong memories while receiving tools to navigate the challenges of terminal illness. Team Inheritance of Hope has offered hundreds of athletes the opportunity to raise funds to help send families to these retreats through partnerships with endurance events. Join us as we inspire hope in these families and receive free registration into the Nuthouse Challenge!  Persevere for families:  Inheritance of Hope Nut House #JoinTheMovement
