Athletes and volunteers who register for Adventure Team Challenge are automatically added to our program email distribution list. If you have not been receiving regular emailed communication from World T.E.A.M. regarding the program, you may need to white list our domain – worldteamsports.org – in your email service so mail is delivered. In many instances, mail may be delivered, but end up in your spam folder (this is particularly true for major free services such as Gmail or Yahoo). Please review your spam filter to see if the emails are waiting – if they are, identify as “not spam” and move to your in-box. You may also need to white list the address. If you are a returning athlete or volunteer, it is also possible that you may have at some point in the past opted out of incoming emails from our email service. If this is the case, you may opt back into the active list.
Participant categories in the Adventure Team Challenge registration system have predetermined limits according to the maximum riders allowed through our organization’s ride permits. If a particular category is missing, that means it has reached capacity. For some categories, waiting lists of interested athletes may be established. Athletes on our waiting lists will be notified directly by World T.E.A.M. by email message if an opening becomes available. To add your name to the World T.E.A.M. Adaptive Athlete waiting list, submit an email letter of interest. We’ll contact interested athletes as positions become available.
Our Adventure Team Challenge registration and fundraising site uses coding cookies to remember previous visitors, so if you discover you are running into difficulties in registering online (or are having problems in donating to a rider), try clearing your Internet browser memory and cache. In most browsers, you can clear the history through the browser’s “Tools” or “Options” tab. Alternately, if you have more than one browser available on your computer, try using your alternate browser. This often happens when two or more participants use a single computer to register.
Adaptive athletes traveling to Adventure Team Challenge Colorado are eligible for certain travel expenses, such as gasoline for travel by vehicle or airline ticketing reservations and costs.
Adaptive athletes may be invited to travel by air to Denver International Airport by the event manager. If you are from outside the Colorado area, this may be an option for you.
In traveling, certain expenses are not reimbursed. These expenses include any tolls on highways, meals, airport or hotel parking fees, baggage fees, in-flight entertainment, alcoholic beverages or seat upgrade fees.
World T.E.A.M. will provide sleeping bags and basic pads for participating athletes upon request.
Air mattresses and pillows are not included. Bring your own if you need additional padding for warmth and comfort.
Until the sun sets at night (about 7:26 p.m. in this region of Colorado), it will be warm in camp, so shorts and shirts will suffice. After sundown, long pants, a wool hat and a warm jacket – even a winter down jacket – are encouraged for use around the campfire. A set of comfortable camp shoes is recommended. (Don’t forget to look at the skies at night – if it is not cloudy, the Milky Way will be brilliantly visible, as will numerous passing orbiting satellites.)
There will be several Porta-Potties stationed throughout the camp for the use of participants, volunteers and their families. A few ADA accessible potties will also be at camp. Please keep these units clean. Along the course, there will be a few potties available at select locations (including ADA accessible). While on the course, you have the usual outdoors option available in private locations.
The Rancho del Rio resort has a few pay showers available. If you do not bring your own quarters for the showers, you can visit the small store at the resort to purchase quarters. The store is open most days.
Often, the event organizers will set up free solar showers for use in casual cleaning near the Porta-Potties. There are also is a wash station with soap near the camp kitchen for washing hands and faces.
Yes, these tin-foil thin blankets do work to warm you, but usually, they are used only in emergency situations. The sleeping bags in the camp will be warm enough to keep you warm at night. Remember that the Challenge is held in the Colorado Rockies and it gets warm during the days – plan on temperatures as high as the upper 70s. Night time lows at Rancho del Rio are usually in the low 30s.
The Adventure Team Challenge Colorado is hosted in the high Colorado Rockies north of Eagle in the Colorado River valley. Cellular telephone service is not available at the camp or along the course. There is no public Wi-Fi or Internet service at the campsite – you will need to travel south to Eagle or Edwards or east to Kremmling along Trough Road to connect to the network.
For participants and volunteers, World T.E.A.M. provides dinner on Thursday, breakfast, lunch and dinner on Friday and Saturday, and breakfast on Sunday.
Here’s a breakdown of the meals at the Rancho del Rio camp:
- Breakfasts consist of coffee, bagels, fruit, cold cereal and oatmeal.
- For Friday and Saturday lunches, we provide a selection of food to pack a sack lunch to take with you on the course. This includes cold cuts, sandwich condiments, cookies, fruit, energy bars, etc.
- Dinners include a taco truck on Thursday, an evening of barbecue meats and an evening of grilled steak and salmon.
For all meals, plenty of water and sports drinks will be available. We normally have water, beer and soft drinks available for adult participants for evening meals, along with coffee, hot tea and hot chocolate in the morning breakfasts.
Although we are not nutritional experts, from experience, you should select food that you find to be useful for physical activities. Don’t discover out on the course that you don’t like energy bars, for instance – taste the bars ahead of the Challenge to find your favorite. During breakfast each morning, a selection of bagels, peanut butter bars, cold cuts, fruits, etc. that can be easily included in your day pack for lunch or a snack is available – choose what you like best for your meal on the trail.
For all participants, if you find you are unable attend Adventure Team Challenge Colorado, email World T.E.A.M. You may change your registration to our virtual participant category if you want to remain remotely active in the program, useful if you are a member of a team. Registration fees and donations are not refundable. You can assign donations to another participant or to your team if you wish.
Withdrawals following July 20, 2020 will result in a charge to the credit account provided at registration to meet your fundraising commitment.
World T.E.A.M. greatly appreciates our new and returning volunteers! Individuals who have an interest in volunteering for Adventure Team Challenge need to first register online through this site. During the registration process, volunteer candidates can indicate the days they are available, their interests and their volunteer background. Our volunteer committee will review all interested candidates and look for a match for days and interests. If you match one of the available opportunities, you will be contacted directly by the appropriate committee coordinator. If you do not hear from a volunteer coordinator, a matching opportunity has not been found – please do not show up at the event planning to help. Contact may take weeks or even a month or longer from the date of registration. Volunteers may need to complete and submit a World T.E.A.M. volunteer agreement to participate.
All confirmed volunteers will receive meals, lodging and camping. Check with your volunteer coordinator to see what you receive for your assistance.
