Volunteers will help direct parking. You will need to walk from the parking lot to the top of Ogg 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 so you may need a headlamp for secure vision while walking to registration

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.

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
