The Program

Gold of the Desert Kings kicks off in a flurry of information from your adventure guide with instructions on how to battle the elements and get to the mountains to mine for as much gold as possible! As the 25-day journey begins (each day is 3 minutes long), teams rush to compete against each other with limited time and resources in this challenging race across the desert. The pressures and anxiety experienced in Gold are similar to those experienced daily in a hectic work schedule. Participants contend with deadlines, a perceived lack of resources, others’ point of view and the pressure to just do something while trying to accomplish team objectives.
