I Double Ogg Dare You!
One of the most challenging races in the Midwest! A race on Ogg Rd, a half mile paved road with approximately 200 feet of climb, making each trek up and down a mile. A long time hill training favorite of locals, this is your chance to challenge yourself on our favorite hill!
3hr and 6hr race distances.
Each lap gives you 1.1 mile, see how many you can fit in! 8am start, limited to 175 entrants total.
Chip timed, full aid station, medical staff on site. Plenty of swag, prizes for top 3 women, men, and non-binary finishers in each distance, any runner who runs a marathon or further will receive a lululemon shirt personalized with their mileage
Start at the top of Ogg road off of the gravel parking lot. Run down to the base of the road, just before Midland drive, turn around and run back up. Turn around will be marked and volunteers will direct you. Circle through the gravel lot to cross over the timing mat. Each lap consists of 1.1 mile, and has approximately 200ft of gain. Runners will run as many laps as they can in a 3 or 6hr period. Only full laps count, and laps stop being counted at the 3 and 6 hour mark.
Race is held rain or shine.
The race will be chip timed by Show-Me Running Company. Chips are worn on your shoes. You must cross over both timing mats for your laps to count. If you do not cross over the timing mats, or wear your chip, laps will not count. Race Directors will have final say over any discrepancy or problems.
There will be one aid station in the gravel lot at the top of Ogg road. Water, tailwind, pringles, candy, sandwiches, Coke, Ginger Ale, Mountain Dew, cookies, saltines, pretzels, and other assorted snacks. Vegan and gluten free options will be available.
Pizza will be available for 6 hour runners and volunteers between 12 and 1pm.
First aid, vaseline, bug spray, sunscreen, wipes also available.
6hr runners will be allowed to set up mini aid station areas for themselves around the start finish in a designated area. We suggest bringing a chair!
This is a CUPLESS event; see rules for specifications.

No pacers allowed. Crew and friends allowed at start/finish. Please be mindful of our timing people and the aid station and stay out of their way.
No alcohol (this is a park rule, please don’t get us into trouble)
Personal music devices are allowed as long as headphones are used and you maintain a volume that allows you to hear other runners. We recommend either one earbud only or bone conduction headphones. If we receive complaints, the RD’s reserve the right to ask you to turn off your music. No speakers.

No partial laps, only full laps will count. If you cut the course in any way you are automatically disqualified.

This is a CUPLESS event. You are responsible for providing your own water bottle or cup. Please consider bringing one for water and one for soda or tailwind. There will be a table provided if you would like to leave your cup or bottle at the aid station rather than carry it with you.
All participants will receive a coffee tumbler.
Each runner will receive a patch as a finishers award upon completion of their race.
Top 3 awards for women, men, and non-binary finishers will be given.
Finishers will be based on most laps completed. In the event of a tie, the winner is whomever completed those laps faster. Anyone who can run a marathon or further during the 6hr will receive a lululemon shirt personalized with their mileage (mailed out after the race-they're printed to order). 24 laps makes a marathon.
