This event is being held by Purdue Army ROTC Boiler Battalion at Purdue University
Next year Boiler Battalion host our 4th annual Norwegian Foot March. We are currently seeking community partners and sponsors for this event. In 2018 we had 357 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. In the 2019 year we hope to host up to 750 participants with increased University and partner support to make the event smooth 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!
