Sure, most of the attention stays on the individual events, but the team events are always a huge crowd-pleaser. Hack’s Pack UTE, took the title in 2012 and returned this year just as strong to crush the field by more than 100 points in the overall standings. After together tackling 10 grueling events, like the Stadium Relay, the Burden Run, and the Ascending Chipper, Hack’s Pack UTE tallied up an incredible seven top-three finishes, four of which were 1st place wins. Team competition involves strong strategy, playing to each others’ strengths, and working cohesively; and the camaraderie and teamwork they demonstrated was both inspiring and energizing to experience. The competition in 2014 better be ready to take them on once again.
