Are you looking for an extreme rough and tumble 10k run on a mountain through water, snow, mud, brush and rocks where you will likely end up getting some cuts and scrapes and possibly even win an award for your new found injury while feeling like a total badass the entire time?? Well, then the Mt.Hood Scramble is the perfect race for you!
The Mt. Hood Scramble has been going on for over 20 years and is also dubbed “the grandfather of filth” race. This race is all about adventure; you’ll get muddy, you’ll be cold, you’ll get beat up by nature, but you’ll feel totally amazing at the end! Each year X-Dog Events puts together an impressive scramble that tests the endurance, speed, and stability of the finest and even occasional athletes from around the world. There are no aid stations along the course, so bring some band-aids with you in case and wear clothes you don’t mind getting torn up a bit.
This is a timed 10k-ish (roughly) event, so awards go to the fastest completion overall and by age division of course, but if you just want to take your time – you can do that too and get to see Mt.Hood in a whole new experience. There are also awards for the previously mentioned “best injury” as well as “best dad” (it is Father’s Day after all) and other categories that you’ll want to stick around for and see if you win! Don’t forget the beer and watermelon at the finish line too!
If you want to make a weekend of it, you can also camp with all the other extreme runners at a nearby campground – word has it, that the camp parties get a little crazy and are tons of fun!
This event sells out fast every year, register as early as possible to get in on the muddy fun!!
