This event is being held by Purdue Army ROTC Boiler Battalion at Purdue University
This year marked the 2nd annual Norwegian Foot March event that Purdue University has held. This event is supported by the Boiler Battalion and numerous sponsors who have dedicated quality time to make this event run smoothly and flawlessly. For this event we had a capacity limit for roughly 250 participants. This year there we had close to 200 participants from all over the country including numerous universities, national guardsman, and individual runners. With the help of some volunteers and the Purdue/West Lafayette/Lafayette Police Departments we were able to have a safe and successful event. Next year we hope to host even more participants and continue to grow our following as the years go on. Sign up and bring your best because this course will challenge you to give it all you got. Boiler Up!
