Buccaneer Rampage Mud & Obstacle Race – Saturday August 23rd
Newport Parks and Recreation will be hosting the 2nd annual Buccaneer Rampage Mud Obstacle Race. This race is unique because it is the first of its kind on the Central Oregon Coast. “This race is designed to be fun and challenging while appealing to a wide range of participants. It’s not a typical 5K race,” says Mike Cavanaugh, Sports Coordinator for Newport Parks and Recreation. “It will be more of an adventure for everyone participating. We encourage both individuals and teams to register for the event.”
This year’s Buccaneer Rampage begins at 11am, Saturday, August 23rd at Newport Municipal Airport and runs until 4pm. Participants must be 15 years of age and over. Event pre-registration is $35 until August 21st. Day of registration is $45 and closes ten minutes prior to the race. “If you don’t want to race, come out and cheer the racers on,” says Cavanaugh. “Spectating is free and it’s fun to watch everyone get dirty!”
There will be a DJ playing music, food vendors and a beer garden throughout the day. Prizes will be given to the best male and female pirate costume!
All proceeds from the event will go towards the youth scholarship program at the Newport Recreation Center. These funds allow children from economically disadvantaged households the opportunity to participate in a number of fantastic recreation programs.
