September 24-27, 2015 • Sunday River, Maine
Each working day, mariners push themselves in a race against time and nature to deliver the world’s commerce. In SCI’s charity event this fall, the Institute asks participants to join them in solidarity. Teams of competitors take to harsh environments to push physical limits, racing up steep summits in a fight to the finish line.
Funds raised by teams strengthen SCI’s valuable support services to mariners. Although taking place on land, the tests in the SCI Mountain Challenge parallel many of the hardships mariners confront at sea: the elements (facing northern New England’s notoriously unpredictable weather), isolation (teams work self-sufficiently on the mountain race courses) and physically demanding work (participants ascend over 3,000 feet each day).
Set in a spectacular mountain location, Sunday River, Maine serves as host to the SCI Mountain Challenge. Along with competitor lodging, all event formalities take place at Sunday River’s Grand Summit Hotel. The property, nestled in the mountains of western Maine, offers stunning fall scenery for the SCI Mountain Challenge.SCHEDULE OF EVENTS
