Troll Stroll 5K Run/Walk & Nordic Fest
STANWOOD, WA – Sons of Norway, Fritjov Lodge, 2-017 will be hosting its 3rd Annual 5k Troll Stroll Run|Walk on May 18th, 2019 and introducing a new addition to the day, Nordic Fest. The combination of Troll Stroll and Nordic Fest was inspired by the energy felt by the community and a desire to recognize the Scandinavian roots in the area. Since the Troll Stroll is built around the date of Norway’s Independence Day, better known as Syttende Mai, May 17th, 1814, adding Nordic Fest after the race was an easy decision.
Registration opens at 9:00am race time at 10:00am. Upon crossing the finishing line, each participant will receive a Norwegian flag and heart shaped waffles. Ribbons will be awarded to 1st, 2nd, and 3rd based on age group. Awards also given out to Best Dressed, for those who wish to dress to fit the theme. Nordic Fest will be open to the public at 11:00am to 4:00pm, where families can enjoy the day exploring vendors selling crafts, clothing and food. There will be a kid’s area as well as a beverage garden for those 21 & over. Both the Troll Stroll and Nordic Fest will be held at the Stanwood Sons of Norway, Fritjov Lodge.
Proceeds from the race will go directly to Fritjov Lodge’s High School Scholarship Fund. For any questions regarding both events or to pre-register for the Troll Stroll, please contact: Ali Sollid at: [email protected] or visit the chapters Facebook page at Stanwood Sons of Norway, Fritjov Lodge
