Is the Towner a benefit for a local Non-Profit?
The 2024 Towner is a benefit for Women in the Tetons. We are requesting participants to donate $10 per person during the registration process which will go directly to the Women in the Tetons.
How do we know where to go?
Your team will receive preliminary course information about a week before the event to strategize your approach. Your team will download a smartphone event app that will have location checkpoints and on-the-go challenges (done anywhere) integrated into the Towner course. This app will have all the checkpoints and challenges and integrated GPS navigation. THIS YEAR – 2024 – We will also have a map provided for those who would not like to use the game app and focus on navigating using a physical map to course checkpoints. You will not get the photos or videos or have the on the go game elements if you choose the map method.
Do I need a smartphone to participate?
Yes, someone on your team will need a smartphone (Iphone recommended). You will download the event app and submit all checkpoint challenges from one team log-in and password per team. Multiple people can download the event app to view challenges and help navigate the course. However, one designated person will submit challenges for your team.
How do you win?
We will have separate categories for FAST and FUN as well as subcategories for ON FOOT versus ON WHEELS! Win points by completing as many checkpoint challenges as possible over a two-hour period. Different types of challenges will have different point values as well as prizes associated with them.
How many people are on a team?
We recommend two to six participants per team. Teams stay together during the event completing checkpoints as one team.
When will we see the final course layout?
Final course updates will be released the week prior to the event to those registered. This will allow your team to strategize on the navigation of your course checkpoints.
Is there an age limit to enter the event?
This is an ALL AGES EVENT, and Children 12 and under must register and be accompanied by a registered, paying adult.
What can/can't I bring to the event?
Please, no dogs (other than service animals) on the course.
Can I Ride Bikes?
We have two transportation categories this year. You may register your team as “on foot” or “on wheels.” If you register your team under the “on wheels” category, you can ride bicycles, skateboards, scooters, etc. Be sure to follow all the Rules of the Road!
Will we still have the opening Ultimate Elevation?
YES – we will begin the Towner with the Ultimate Elevation warm up and YOU are invited to be a part of the dance team with a select crew on the Boulders.
Will there still be traditional Towner Obstacles?
YES! This year’s Towner will feature new challenges that focus on teamwork and collaboration … which challenges you choose to complete will be your choice! We are also bringing back our old-school obstacles, such as walls and sand pits, for our 11th Ultimate Towner anniversary.
Do teams need to stay together?
YES – this is one of the only “rules” of the game. Each team will submit their challenges under one team name. If you want to do the course with someone else, form a new team.
Will Tuffy the Elephant still be the Towner Mascot?
YES. And Tuffy will be on the course, actively providing one of the challenges for you!
Catch him if you can!
When will we know the final Towner course checkpoints and challenges?
You will be provided with an overview of the location checkpoints about a week prior to the event. SOME of the checkpoint challenges will be revealed in advance, others will remain a mystery to be solved during the 2 hour event!
