Road (approximately ¼ mile). We will have a place to put finish bags if you want to avoid walking back to your car before the race. There are no lights in the parking lot and sunrise is at 7:09 am on September 25, so you may need a headlamp for secure vision while walking to registration.

The race will be chip timed by Show-Me Running Company. Chips will be provided to be tied to your shoes. Do NOT fold the chips. Please be mindful of walking near the timing mats while at the aid station. If you choose to end early during the 6hr event, please turn in your chips to the timers. 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 issues.
There will be one aid station in the gravel lot at the top of Ogg road.
5k runners will have water provided. Reminder that this is a cupless event

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 music without headphones.

No partial laps for the 6hr, only full laps will count. If you cut the course in any way you are automatically disqualified.

5k runners must have started their third lap by the start of the 6hr race (9am) or you will be pulled. If you feel that you need more time than that we highly recommend signing up for the 6hr.

This is a CUPLESS event. You are responsible for providing your own water bottle or cup. 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. This applies to both the 5k and 6hr.

In this episode, I run the “I Double Ogg Dare You” race from hell. Watch as 28 of Kansas City’s craziest masochists run up and down an 18 story tall, half-mile-long hill as many times as possible in a 6-hour period. #hillrepeats#idoubleoggdareyou
Todd Chandler Race Review
Team Sparkle Productions hosted an insane timed endurance event where the goal was to run up and down the steep hill on Ogg Road as many times as you could in 6 hours. I was well rested off a strong spring and summer and had an awesome day, placing 3rd place male and 9th overall with 29.7 miles. Love the community on this and think I will definitely have to do this again
