  • Geocache

    The Wild Canyon Games has built the largest geocaching grid in the world. Featuring over 1,000 caches hidden across 55 square miles of high desert terrain. Four of your seven members will have four hours to find as many of our custom-made WCG geocaches as possible. The timed event is designed to push each athlete to his or her limit. This event will challenge your teams strength, stamina, and ability to navigate through the high desert Central Oregon terrain.

    Triathlon

    The Wild Canyon Games Triathlon consists of an .92 open water swim, 15.5 mile mountain bike course and a 10K train run. On average the relay triathlon takes about three hours, depending on the athleticism and experience of each team member. Each leg of the Triathlon will be individually timed using a digital electronic system. Competitors will be able to track individual split times and overall team times at the conclusion of the event. 

    More Information

    Upon arrival at Washington Family Ranch, you will be directed to a bike drop-off location. Bikes will be securely stored at the reservoir overnight in preparation for the second leg of the race. (Professional bike tune-ups are an option at this drop-off point, at your own cost.)

    On Saturday morning of the event, Swimmers and Bikers will be transported to the reservoir (T1) after breakfast. Runners will report to Canyon Camp Sports Center (T2) to await the arrival of their Bike competitor. Bikes arrive at T2 and are stored inside the Sports Center after this leg of the event. Runners depart T2 and finish in the field at the center of the Canyon Camp Ranch.

    YOU MUST BRING YOUR OWN GPS DEVICES TO THE WILD CANYON GAMES!

    Geocache "waypoints" need to be downloaded before arriving Friday night. Coordinates are now available. Each WCG cache will vary in point value based upon location, difficulty, elevation, number of times found in previous year and proximity to other caches. All geocaches are marked with a specific code, competitors must record the code provided before moving to the next cache. Safety is a top priority, competitors will be provided with a complementary safety pack and are asked to stay together at all times. A serious point penalty awaits competitors who finish late.

    This is a course that will challenge you from the onset. The first mile ascends 400-feet along a ‘single’ track’ trail; expect steep grades and roller coaster hills along the trek. The second mile gradually descends toward Creekside Camp to provide some relief from the massive climb just endured. To help your legs rebound, or provide a flat section to push the pace, miles three and four are on the road and wind you through the heart of camp. To keep the run challenging, miles four and five veer toward the trails/fire roads and send you climbing. Expect a 300-foot gain once you get on the trail/fire road and the last 1.2 miles are a gradual downhill toward the finish.
