The national non-profit World T.E.A.M.’s annual Adventure Team Challenge will be held September 6 to 9 featuring athletes competing together in Colorado’s high Gore Mountain Range.
Registration opened online for the Challenge July 1. An anticipated ten or more teams will arrive in Eagle September 6 for a weekend of competition at the rustic Rancho del Rio resort on the Colorado River 25 miles northeast of this mountain community.
Since the first Challenge in 2007, the competition annually welcomes teams of five athletes–two being adaptive – completing stages that require not only physical ability, but technical ingenuity, resourcefulness and exceptional determination. Athletes will cycle off-road on single and double-track trails, raft Class III rapids on the Colorado River through Gore Canyon, climb high granite rock outcroppings and orienteer a safe and efficient route through a wilderness environment.
The Adventure Team Challenge Colorado from World T.E.A.M. is supported each year through the support of multiple partners. In 2017, American Portfolios Financial Services, Benson Botsford LLC, Cannondale, Devens Recycling Center, Pearl Meyer & Partners, LLC, Penske Truck Rental, Sheet Metal Union Local 105 and Timberline Tours all offered financial and in-kind support.
