The first-ever Green River Games are taking place this weekend in Saluda. The games are a series of extreme outdoor adventure races.
Athletes competed in kayaking, trail running and mountain biking.
Organizer John Grace says the event celebrates the terrain and showcases the river and surrounding mountains.
"It's an incredible venue," he said. "You have 2000 foot canyon walls surrounding one of the best classified rivers in the world, and when you combine those elements of the terrain, you can't lose."
The competitions continue through Sunday morning.
A sign meant to make people think also got people talking in the Town of Blacksburg.
