About This Activity


About The Gauntlet

Hosted by Western Colorado Contractor’s Association (WCCA), The Gauntlet was established in May 2012 as western Colorado’s first mud-running, air-sucking, muscle-pounding two plus-mile obstacle race.  It is meant for people of all ages to challenge themselves for a good cause, and have a good time with others doing the same.   Tasteful costumes and comradery is highly encouraged and a definite “triple-dog dare”.


All members of The Gauntlet committee are volunteers whom have most generously given hundreds of hours of free time and talent.  The majority of our volunteers are WCCA members that represent all facets of the construction industry.   Unlike many other events of this type – we give back 100% of the event’s net proceeds to benefit the amazing athletes of Colorado Discoverability and Special Olympics in Western Colorado. In fact, due to the overwhelming success of the last three year’s events, WCCA, The Gauntlet, and our wonderful sponsors contributed over $45,000 to Special Olympics – all of which stays local in our community to benefit these athletes. 


The Gauntlet 2015

WCCA is excited to host the 3rd  Annual Gauntlet obstacle race.  Our first three years proved very successful with over 400 participants from across Colorado and eastern Utah.  We anticipate a BIGGER, BADDER, and MORE BRUTAL event for 2015.  And by this we mean:

  • Electronic timing system for more accurate participant timing
  • Slightly longer race with additional physical and mental obstacle challenges
  • Improved online sign up for participants and teams
  • Early package pick up for participant and team registration
  • Improved visibility and promotion of our generous sponsors
  • Better layout and fluidity of event parking, vendors, and spectator engagement
  • Improved participant recovery stations
  • An even cooler event t-shirt (Yep – our t-shirts rock!)


We hope you will be a part of this great community event.
