The Ultimate Towner is BACK!  

After two years of canceled events due to the pandemic, Grand Dynamics International, the producer of the annual event, reemerged the Towner in 2022 in a new form – an AMAZING RACE.  Rave reviews came out of this new format as participants embraced the variety of challenges in the 2-hour on-course format. 

The Ultimate Towner is produced by Grand Dynamics, a 25-year local experiential training and development company specializing in team and leadership programming.  Grand Dynamics produces Amazing Race events all over the country, including our downtown event in Jackson Hole for visiting groups. 

The Amazing Race format allows participants to choose the course and travel to checkpoints on a foot, bikes or non-motorized vehicles. The types of challenges are much more eclectic than the standard walls to climb over – teams need to think, be creative and work together to be successful.  

However, we heard the feedback from many Jacksonians that you missed some of the old-school towner obstacles, so in 2024, we are creating a hybrid event that will have some of the traditional obstacles, while still maintaining the fun elements of the Amazing Race!

Grand Dynamics had been delivering Amazing Race-style events for years with great success. The event is designed to be very inclusive with all challenges located within a square mile of the Jackson Hole Town Square, and relatively short (2 hours), creating an experience that nearly everybody can accomplish.

Teams will strategize to complete as many challenges as possible, following the Amazing Race Map and guidance provided to complete the challenges in whatever order you choose.  Towners will Navigate the town of Jackson, answer trivia, overcome obstacles, and complete challenges with creativity and collaboration.  Participants will receive all the necessary instructions and guidance on event day for a successful fun experience of navigating the course and completing challenges. 

If participating just isn’t your cup of tea, you can still be involved by volunteering or spectating throughout the course.

The Towner also serves as a great team-building event for co-workers to bond together and start off the summer season with a shared, novel experience.  Let’s celebrate our Jackson Hole community together in grand style with the 10th annual Ultimate Towner!
