Let's Get Ready To Rumble

Marcellus Marathon Challenge

PhysicalOn your mark, get set, go! Log as many miles as you can to help your team get across the finish line. Whether you walk, run, kayak, garden, play tennis or complete a variety of activity options on the list - your activity counts! Track your activities and our app will convert them to miles as you reach for the goal of completing a full marathon (26.2 equivalent miles) as a team. Athletes are awarded points for participation – work with your team to divide the mileage based on your teammates' strengths to complete the marathon. Teams can complete additional miles for more points. You've got this!

Appalachian Idol Challenge

Creative. Ever wonder what hidden talents your friends and colleagues have? Maybe you can sing, dance, backflip, do magic tricks...the sky is the limit! Pick your favorite party trick or talent to share and upload your video to the event page. Then browse your colleagues' and friends' talents and vote for your favorite!

Paint n’ Sip Challenge

Artistic. Come get your Bob Ross game on, all while sipping some amazing wine! Join us and our expert artist as you are guided through creating your very own masterpiece while enjoying a variety of fine wines, crafted by local winemaker, Engine House 25 Wines. The blends are delicious works of art and are sure to get your creative (grape) juices flowing.

Top Chef Challenge

Culinary. Who’s got game in the kitchen? Show us your Top Chef skills by competing in two unique challenges wrapped into one. Each participant will complete both of the following challenges: (1) Chillin n' Grillin Burger and (2) The Cocktail Concoction. We will send you a box of ingredients and you will be asked to use a subset of those to make the two creations. Create, plate & share! Then vote for your favorites and see who votes for yours!

Undercover Escape Challenge

Teamwork. You are a spy that wakes up in a hotel room to find out your cover has been blown. Messages from Mission Central direct you to clues in your hotel room, train station, and airport. These clues are meant to covertly get you to your new credentials and plane ticket which are safely stored in a locker at the airport. Clues involve recorded voice mail messages, “bugged” plants, song clips, ciphers, and more. On each screen (hotel, train station, and airport) teams must piece together information from the clues to solve an overarching clue that will allow them to move to the next location. Teams earn points as they gather information and solve clues. The first team to escape will add bonus points to their overall score.
