Bohemia, NY (PRWEB) January 15, 2013
On January 15, adventure racing organization Spartan Race commends an article in The Daily Citizen on Dalton man Chase Norton’s plans to travel the entire length of Death Valley National Park.
According to article published by The Daily Citizen, “The Death Valley project is truly one of a kind, being a fully self-contained and solo backpacking trek across the entire park from north to south over 228 miles of the most rugged terrain imaginable.”
A former student in meteorology, Norton began his career hiking around Hawaii and recently founded Chase LIFE, a company dedicated to influencing people to lead “a more healthy and active lifestyle,” The Daily Citizen reports. As a part of this initiative, Norton is documenting his expedition through Death Valley in a short film titled “Death Valley: Chase’s Way” and using it as a source of inspiration for his motivational speeches to schools and businesses.
Spartan Race founder Joe Desena applauds Norton’s commitment to motivate the public towards improving their lives and says, “Chase Norton inspires everyone by showing that anyone is capable of overcoming obstacles to accomplish their goals.” He adds, “Spartan Race challenges you to push past your limits and evolve into a healthier person willing to take life by the horns and go after their dreams.”
