The Teva Mountain Games have a long standing tradition of offering some of the best competition for outdoor athletes across a multitude of disciplines. Each year, hundreds of competitors descend on Vail, Colorado, where they run, bike, paddle, and climb against one another, with the gorgeous backdrop of the Rocky Mountains looming overhead.
This year’s games are set to take place from June 3-6, and will mark the return of one of the most intense and demanding multisport competitions of all time, as the GNC sponsored Ultimate Mountain Challenge re-debuts at the event. The UMC will pit the athletes against one another in four different events, and their times in those events will be combined to determine the winner. Those events include the Volvo 10K Spring Runoff presented by Eddie Bauer, Volvo X-Country Mountain Bike presented by Fetzer Vineyards, Fetzer Vineyards Road Bike Time Trial presented by Thule and Bud Light Lime Down River Sprint presented by Jackson Kayak.
As you can see, to be the King (or Queen!) of the Mountain, you’ll need to have skills in a variety of different athletic pursuits. But the Teva Mountain Games also includes a photography competition, an Outdoor Adventure Film School, fee concerts and much, much more. If you’re in the Vail area on the weekend on the dates of the event, be sure to drop by and checkout the largest outdoor athletic competition anywhere in the world.
