The Big Rock Candy Mountain Sevier River Challenge took place on August 3, 2013 in Sevier County, UT and was a huge success! Participants walked, ran, crawled, swam and climbed their way through this uniquely challenging course that took place along and in the Sevier River.  It's hard to say who had more fun...the participants or the spectators, but it's a safe bet to say that a good time was had by all.

A huge shout out of thanks is due to the Event Sponsors, click the logos to visit their websites.

RESULTS:

Grand Prize Winner: John Wright won the Grand Prize of a Big Rock Candy Mountain Adventure and Lodging Package.
