Megathon is India's premier Adventure Sports competition and festival. The event takes place in one of India's most famous Adventure Sports locations and one of her most beautiful natural and spiritual environments, Rishikesh India, the home of Adventure Sports and pure nature.
Megathon could be considered India's Adventure Sports Olympics. The competitions are designed to put teams of six people together as one entity to compete against one another. Each team and team member will compete in various events to include a quaterthon run, a mountain bike relay race, a white water rafting race, an obstacle course and more. By creating various sporting events each team and team member can show their physical and mental skill in different ways.
White Water Rafting Race:
White Water Rafting on the Gange is a true adventure sport and one of the most popular sports in all of india. Teams of 6 will take to araft with a professional guide and race against other rafts on the river. Strength, Stamina and Team work will be necessary to battle the class 3 and 4 rapids while trying to paddle faster than the other rafts competing against you and your team. Floating down the river is not an option! This race requires that all 6 team members work together and use their upperbody strength to paddle as fast as they can and in sync with one another. You must paddle fast and hard enough to push your way down the river past all the other rafts and finish first. Does your team have what it takes?
Mountain Bike Relay Race:
You will have a mountain bike, a helmet and knee pads, but what you truly need is speed and no fear while you peddle your way as fast as you can through rough mountain terrain. This race will consist of 3 person teams. The first person will ride as fast as they can until they reach the second point in the race where they will hand their bike over to their team mate, the second person will then again ride as hard and fast as they can until the third leg of the race where the last team member will be waiting to finish the race at top speed. Each team member will be riding on rough mountain roads, up and down hill while pushing their way to the top spot. Each individual team member needs to give it their all.
Rishikesh Quarterathon comprises of theme based community run which comprises a stretch of 7Miles/11.26 km's . It represents a whole lot more, it also characterizes a sensitive and imperative issue facing Uttarakhand i.e.decline in tourism post the natural calamity of 2013. The run would be open to all and would serve the purpose of highlighting Uttarakhand as a premier Adventure Sports Destination as thousands of participants along with prominent personalities and Celebrities would "Run for Uttarakhand"
Teams of 6 will each take the end of a rope and through tenacity, team work and strength try to pull the other team down to their knees. Each team that wins one rope pulling event will compete against the next team and the last team standing will be declared the winner. This event is all about brute strength and team work. Which team will be the last team standing?
One Team Member per team will compete against another person from another team through a rigorous obstacle course. When all team members have taken their turn through the crazy difficulties of the obstacle course the team with the most individual wins will be declared the winner.
Can you and your team take down the other teams in a paintball "war"? This event is all about fun and strategy. Work as a team to take out members of the other team until there is only one man/team standing. Stealth, communication and stamina are the name of this game and it's messy and fun too!
