Hero Games

One of the biggest and most poplar events, the Hero Games, is something you won’t want to miss! The friendly competition between Alaska’s first responders includes crowd-pleasing events such as challenging obstacle courses, tower climb, tug of war, scooter races and donut-eating contest, all involving balance, strength, teamwork and a sense of humor.

Last years winning team, The Alaska National Guard Team, is BACK this year! This tough group has what it takes, but does it have what it takes to win 2 years in a row?? Come see if the Alaska National Guard Team is able to do what’s never been done before by winning the Hero Games title for 2 consecutive years!
