Welcome ladies and gentlemen to the King-of-the-Hill
Adventure Race. Today, you will see some of the most
fit people in the world as they try to cross a lake, navigate
a forest, and climb an icy mountain. To win the race, the
contestants must be the first to reach the top of the
mountain and plant their flag.

At the start of the race, contestants must cross Lake Aqua
in a small canoe. But there is a catch. The contestants
must cross the lake in pairs. Each canoe must take two
people across the lake. Contestants must work together
to decide who goes with who. This part of the race takes
not only strength and canoeing skills, but teamwork and
people skills as well.

When contestants reach the other side of the lake, they
are then on their own. Contestants split up to navigate the
forest and reach the mountain on the other side. The
forest is dark and think and hard to navigate, so it is
easy to get lost in. If that wasn't enough, rumor has it
that it is also full of of Grizzly Bears.



Once contestants reach the other side of the forest,
they must prepare for their climb up the mountain.
Here, contestants must change into warm clothing
and mountain gear as the get ready for their difficult
climb to the top of the mountain.

As the contestants ascend the mountain, the terrain
will change quickly. Rock will turn into snow, and snow
will turn into ice. Quickly the mountain will become very
steep, and soon the contestants will be faced with an
ice cliff that is straight up.

At the top of the mountain, to win the race the
contestants must plant a flag that can be seem
from far below. Each contestant has a special color
flag that they must plant in the ice at the top of the
mountain to signify that they are the winners in the
race and the new King-of-the-Hill.
