THE EVENT THAT IS "KICK ASS" ADVENTURE
The route normally runs 5-6 miles with the winning victim participant finishing in about 45-minutes. The average finisher will take about 1:15 - 1:30 with some being on the course nearly 2:00.
Technically speaking, there is nothing "un-naturally" technical on the course. Some portions you can run, some portions you cannot, and some you clearly shouldn’t. You will experience many different types of obstacles and terrain.
We host an annual Campfire Bingo (great prizes like gift certificates to Next Adventure) and the Annual Creek Streak! SPECIAL AWARDS TO ALL STREAK FINISHERS. NO ENTRY FEE. for BINGO or the Creek Streak.
Saturday night features a potluck, so bring a side! Andrew & Kriss Lewis are on the pit with some epic BBQ for the potluck and for post race. A whole hog will be smoked on site for the post event feast.
This bad boy earned the the phrase which has become its slogan: "Kick Ass Adventure." And the sheenanigans and hoo-ha that go on at the camping and finish -- we leave those stories (and pictures) off the website. Suffice it to say, legends have been born there.
Finding the Mayhem:
The event starts in the McCubbins Gulch Recreation Area on Mt. Hood. Take HWY 26 from Portland to Government Camp. From Government Camp continue on HWY 26 to the Tygh Valley/Maupin Turn-off (15 miles) then follow the turn-off for 5-miles to the McCubbins Gulch Area (on your left).
There is camping at the event start/finish. Camping is often exciting and shall we say... UNBELIEVABLE. Last year there was a moonlight naked swim with a rope of lanterns guiding the... “competitions” that evolved. For more information you may call the race headquarters (Dog Haus) at 503-741-XDOG. Do not miss out on the fun. Camping is free in our area.
We will continue to update this page until the event. Be sure to check in every now and then for announcements.
