The games will include five stand-up paddle races, four flat-water kayak races, two fishing competitions, a dog jump, a dog race, a mud run with obstacles and a mountain bike race.

“We are excited to kick off the first SeasonFive Summit Games this year,” says Mike Fischer, founder of SeasonFive. “The purpose of the games is to promote the sports we enjoy, and the causes we believe in, and that’s why we decided to help First Descents and donate the proceeds to help them get young adults with cancer outdoors and enjoying their community.”
“First Descents is excited to see events like this in our own back yard,” says Brad Ludden, FIRST DESCENTS founder and CEO. “It’s so important for your health and happiness to get outside and enjoy every day, enjoy the outdoor lifestyle.”
