Yep. We created what a Scramble shoud be, FOURTEEN YEARS ago. There are a lot of posers out there now. But the real filth and adventure lays with, the Mt. Hood Scramble. The Grandfather of Filth.
After 13 years we had to raise the fees a bit... but the fee still pales the price your body is going to pay.
This is what we are rockin'
This event isn't designed for the pansy-ass front avenue runner -- DO NOT expect some cutesy lil' downtown 5k, or some wussy boy trail-run. This mother is packed with adventure: hills, creeks, rock, dirt, heavy brush and more. Wear clothes you don't mind ruining, and bring band-aids if you are concerned about some bleeding. As for aid stations... there is plenty of water on the course, but I'd think twice about drinking it... especially after you waded through it. As for the distance, well it’s about 6-miles or whatever "K". We'll time you, give you awards, probably some watermelon, and hell, we may even throw a few beers -- all you have to do is finish. Think you’re up for it? We are ready for you, and to quote Shakespeare’s Henry V, "he who shed his blood with me, shall be my brother" See you on the hill.
Finding the Mayhem:
The race starts and finishes at the White RiverWestSnowPark on Mt.Hood. From Portland, take HWY 26 to Mt.Hood, then just past Government Camp take HWY 35 towards HoodRiver (east). The park is a few miles past the HWY 35 / HWY 26 interchange. If you get lost finding the course, you will be in big trouble once you are on it.
