The inaugural Don Schneider Memorial Challenge Run will be held at 8 a.m. on
Saturday, Sept. 22, and is part of the college's SNC Day activities.
The 5k course will begin and end on campus, looping south on Lost Dauphin Road. It is
loosely based on the Tough Mudder obstacle-course races designed by British Special
Forces, but will not be extreme. Obstacles will include climbing the stairs at Schneider
Stadium, hurdles, crawling under ropes and climbing hay bale hills.
Registration is $15, and runners will receive a commemorative long sleeve T-shirt and
headband. Medals will be awarded to the top three finishers in each division. The hope is to make it an annual event.
Don Schneider was a longtime trustee, adjunct professor and generous friend of St.
Norbert College, as well as an avid runner. Proceeds from the race will benefit Don
Schneider Memorial Scholarships at St. Norbert College. The Schneider National
Foundation is the race's sponsor. To register, see www.snc.edu/sncday.
Showers and food/refreshments will be available in Schuldes Sports Center for runners
after the race.
SNC Day is a campus open house held from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. Race participants can stay
and enjoy boat rides on the Fox River, programs on two entertainment stages, food, children's and wellness activities, lectures by St. Norbert College faculty, trolley rides to Schneider Stadium to watch St. Norbert take on John Carroll University in football (admission is free to the public), a wedding/special event show and horse-drawn wagon rides through campus.
