A group of archers confer on their overall score during the archery competition at the Mtn. High Games, conducted at the Payson Event Center.

The Mtn. High Games catered to several different groups this year. Archers, horse shoe throwing competitors, ATV riders, music lovers, and die hard runners who cherish a run with an added challenge.

If running up and down steep hills and across flat stretches of land that curve when they shouldn't, isn't enough for your competitive spirit, runs like the Mogollon Mudder, might be more to your tastes.

Tim, Samantha, and Zoe Wright were in the first heat of competitors at the Mogollon Mudder. Zoe finished 122nd, and Tim and Samantha finished 133rd and 135th.

The Mudder consisted of a 5K run with 32 obstacles; most of which required running through water, mud, and/or climbing various nets, logs, stairs and hills, and crawling through and under the least friendly terrain that could be manufactured for this test of skill. A total of 236 contestants finished the competition.

The top three winners for men and women are listed below:
