Wild Canyon Games (WCG) at Lost Canyon, Arizona is unique. It combines running, biking, geocaching, climbing, zip-lining, blobbing and more into a competitive team challenge. Athletes from every walk of life will join us May 17th-May 18th, 2013 at close to 7,000 feet elevation in the woods of Northern Arizona to Experience the Edge.
Each Lost Canyon WCG team is comprised of 5 members. Teams will work to earn points while competing in events ranging from a 20 mile mountain bike race through the Kaibab National Forest, to a zip-lining target shooting competition over our zip-line lake. The team that earns the most points by the end of the weekend will be crowned the 2013 Wild Canyon Games-Lost Canyon Champion.
Wild Canyon Games is more than just the best team-based athletic competition Friday May 17th kicks off the Friday Nite Fest for all competitors/guests at Lost Canyon with a great evening of bonding with teammates and fellow competitors. On Saturday night after the competition, competitors will travel to the historic town of Williams, Arizona, for dinner and to regale other competitors with your feats that day!
RACE DAY: Wild Canyon Games is broken down into 3 phases of challenges & competition.
1. TRIPLE RACE
3 of your 5 team members will compete simultaneously in all out endurance effort. These 3 team members will be doing a 20 mile mountain bike course, 15K trail run and a 30 mile road bike race. Did we mention this is occurring at 7,000 feet?! While these 3 members of your team compete in the Triple Race, the other 2 team members will compete in a geocaching competition unlike any other.
2 of your 5 team members will embark on one of the most challenging geocaching grids in North America. We have hidden 50+ geocaches over a 10-mile grid throughout the wilderness to create an unmatched competitive geocaching experience.
3. THE CHALLENGE
The third phase involves teamwork, strategy, and fun! Each team will pick between an array of team based challenges: the zipline, canyon swing, a high ropes course, blobbing, climbing wall, and events you will just have to see to believe. No doubt that these events will not only test your guts, but also your athleticism.
