About the Event
Did you watch the Rio Olympics and get a nagging feeling that they were just a warm up for something? Well, here it is - the event of the year! Gradiators is a "field day" type of event in which teams compete in fun, outdoor, active mini-games while pizza and drinks are available for consumption. Prizes will be awarded and a merry time will be had by all! Sporting prowess not necessary, but a fun attitude is a must.
What: Our own Caltech Olympics event! Participants compete in teams in a number of events that will challenge them in any number of different surprising ways!
Who: This event is open to graduate students (those just starting and those who are experienced Caltechers) as well as all alumni and staff!
When: This event will be on September 24 from 11am-3pm. Please turn up by 10:45am. We cannot guarantee you will participate if you are late.
Where: Beckman Lawns in front of the Beckman Institute.
Cost: Free. Wait, really? Yep, absolutely free!
Food and Drinks: Lunch will be provided! There will be drinks including plenty of water!
Dress code: Please wear comfortable clothing for a bit of exercise. This includes sneakers/runners/trainers and comfortable clothing. Also, be aware that there may be some events that require a little bit of splashing, so your clothes may get wet (but not saturated). Remember it may be hot, so sunglasses, a hat and sun cream are strongly recommended.

Wait, is this a sports event or a fun event? It’s both, but mostly the second. On a spectrum, it’s 30% exercise and 70% complete unadulterated fun! There are limited spots and this is a VERY popular event, so sign up soon! Can’t wait to see you in a couple of weeks!
