Rec Center to host obstacle course for third straight year

Cleveland State University Recreation Center will host its third annual Viking Quest, which is a two-mile obstacle course around campus.

Viking Quest will take place Saturday, April 22 at 9 a.m. beginning at the Recreation Center.

The obstacle course will consist of different stations along the route. The stations will include a selfie station, flip cup station, tire flipping station, tire agility station and speed ladder station. The course also includes a blind faith station, where one member of the team is on a scooter and the other blindfolded team member pushes the scooter according to the scooter driver’s directions.

The Campus Activity Board (CAB) will sponsor the first 100 students who sign up. Students just need to go to the Pro Shop inside the Recreation Center and mention that CAB is their sponsor. The first 100 people to sign up will receive a t-shirt.

The cost of the obstacle course for students is $6 per person, for members of the recreation center the cost is $12 per person and for non-members the price is $15.

The obstacle course competition will consist of teams of two. When signing up, students can sign up with a friend or sign-up as a free agent and will be placed in a team with another participant before the start of the obstacle race. If you have friends from other schools, they can participate, but they must pay the non-members fee.

The team that finishes the race first will win a prize, as well the team with the best name and the best-dressed team.

One of the major prizes that the teams can win is a $50 Dicks Sporting Goods gift card.

After the race has been completed participants will receive a free food voucher for Barrio, which will bring a food truck to the race.
