Husky Alpine Run

DSC_0047Are you up for a Halloween challenge? Come join the Michigan Tech Department of Military Science in our inaugural Husky Alpine Run on Oct. 27, which is a 5 km trail race on Mont Ripley. Don’t ski or snowboard? No worries. Many people enjoy skiing or snowboarding the slopes of Ripley and now you get to run them.  We encourage everyone to show up and run in their Halloween costume as prizes are awarded to the costume contest winner.

All racers will get complimentary food and beverages after the event and there will also be raffle prizes. The winners of each age group (male and female) will receive medals, and the overall male and female winners will get their names engraved on a plaque that will be posted in the Military Science building. Sign up now and get a free event t-shirt. Student registration is only $15.

We also want to give back to our community in Houghton and help fund road repairs caused by the devastating Father’s Day flooding. To do so, we will donate part of our proceeds to help fund flood relief efforts. Come out and have a fun time and help us support our community.
