May 29, 2008 — The water is running, the climbers are arriving, and even the local dogs seem to have an extra glint in their eye as Vail gears up for the Teva Mountain Games, coming to town June 5-8.

The the largest outdoor adventure sports festival combines multiple outdoor sports all at one venue. Everything from fly-fishing to kayaking, mountain biking to trail running, climbing to rafting – and even competitions for your dog - will fill the streets and rivers of Vail this June.

The Teva Games will also host the first World Cup climbing event in the U.S. in twenty years.

“This is truly an exciting development for the sport of climbing and anyone who has ever dreamed of watching the best athletes in the world compete right in front of your very own eyes,” said Joel Heath, President of Untraditional Marketing, owners and operators of the Teva Mountain Games. “Our new competition climbing wall will make this event easy to watch and understand. Not to mention, you have seven other sports and a multitude of concerts and parties to absorb. A mountain weekend cannot get any better than this.”

The environmentally friendly, motorless outdoor sporting event will host 2,000 professional and amateur outdoor athletes from all over the world. These athletes will converge upon the mountains and rivers to compete in seven sports and 21 disciplines for over $100,000 in prize money. This year’s disciplines include kayaking, rafting, mountain biking, road cycling, World Cup and amateur climbing, paragliding, fly-fishing, trail running, diving dogs and multi-sport racing.

An estimated 1.4 million people will tune into the Teva Mountain Games on its national television and on-line broadcast.
