September 28 – October 1, 2017 • Sunday River, Maine
Each working day, mariners push themselves in a race against time and nature to deliver the world’s commerce.
Taking place on land and water, the 2017 SCI Mountain Challenge parallels many of the hardships mariners confront on a daily basis: the elements (facing northern New England’s notoriously unpredictable weather), isolation (teams work self-sufficiently on the mountain and water race courses) and physically demanding work (participants ascend over 3,000 feet each day).
In addition to the outdoor elements, our event also includes a “Philanthropy Challenge”, asking participants to raise funds and awareness for the Seamen’s Church Institute (SCI) and its mariner support services.
