Mountain Challenge

SCI Mountain Challenge

Imagine spending a long weekend in one of the country’s most beautiful natural locations. Now, imagine sharing the experience with industry colleagues while you challenge yourself and teammates to compete for top athletic honors, all while raising money for the Seamen’s Church Institute.

Taking place on land and water, the SCI Mountain Challenge parallels many of the hardships mariners face on a daily basis: the elements (facing northern New England’s notoriously unpredictable weather), isolation (teams of three work self-sufficiently on the mountain and water race courses), and physically demanding work (participants ascend approximately 3,000 feet each day).

In addition to the outdoor elements, competitors participate in the “Philanthropy Challenge” to raise funds and awareness for the Seamen’s Church institute (SCI) and its mariner support services.
