Mountain Games 2019 is here, are you ready to Claim Your Heritage!
Fall leaves starting to appear with tomahawks passing by, runners ready to tackle the Buffalo Heart trail, and others daring to defeat “Seneca Rocks”, Heritage Farm Museum and Village will be leading Mountain Games 2019 on Saturday, September 21, 2019 featuring 8 games/ competitions.
“The farm taking ownership of the Mountain Games was a natural fit with our vision and mission to help teach others about our Mountain Heritage,” said Audy Perry, Executive Director of Heritage Farms. “The cost of registration will go back to assist with future development and programing for additional educational opportunities presented at the Farm,” said Perry.
Competitors are encouraged to come and compete as an individual or together as a team to see who will “Claim Their Heritage” as this year’s Mountain Man, Mountain Woman, Mountain Youth and Mountain Teams. There are a total of 8 competitions to compete in, including the Buffalo Heart Trail Run which will be both a 5K and a 10K. Those interested in signing up for the race will also be registered to compete in all the other games as well. You will be judged on your best 7 out of 8 scores.
“Mountain Games is a time to come and compete in activities our ancestors used to have to do just to survive. Get your friends, family, co-workers all together to see if you have what it takes to be the best,” said Perry.
Games will be open on Saturday, September 21, 2019 from 10am-3pm at Heritage Farm and Village, with Buffalo Heart Trail Run starting earlier at 8:30am.
Registration is now open and competitors are encouraged to register in advance so when you arrive the games can begin!
