Event Summary

The “Gauntlet” Challenge is a great non-stop, timed twist to the award-winning Team Challenge.  The “Gauntlet” provides an action-packed team building event guaranteed to energize and excite your employees.  A combination of WCF’s award-winning Team Challenge, fun-filled trivia and a non-stop, timed and competitive format creates an atmosphere designed to build camaraderie and enhance relationships amongst employees -
a fast-paced and exciting event for participants of all ages.

In this fun twist on WCF’s popular Team Challenge program, the group starts with an orientation previewing the activities and goals for the day.  Teams are assigned a different starting point at one of four event stations.  Much like the Team Challenge, teams compete to finish a variety of stations or challenges.  However, with the “Gauntlet” Challenge, teams are not only just evaluated on completing each station, they must also complete them as quickly as possible.  Time now becomes the main factor in the successful completion of the “Gauntlet”.   Times are kept for the individual challenges and also the overall time to complete the “ Gauntlet”, with the fastest times rewarded with the most points.  The team with the most points wins the “Gauntlet” Challenge showing they worked well together to not only complete each challenge effectively as a team but also perform well under the added pressure associated with being evaluated on the time required to complete the tasks.  An amazing event with all participants walking away with a heightened sense of camaraderie and team morale.
