first_img Share. Sunriver Offers the Mudslinger as a Great Spring Break Competition Got spring break plans? How about bringing the family out for a chance to frolic in filth during the Sunriver Mudslinger mud run Sunday, March 23, 1 p.m. The 1.5-mile course consists of a half-mile run, a scramble over and under obstacles, and multiple mud pits to run, crawl and jump through. The objective is to get dirty and have fun doing it. The event is open to individuals, families and teams. Creative costumes are encouraged and spectators are welcome.Presented by the Sunriver Owners Association the Mudslinger starts and finishes in a meadow near the Sunriver HOLA! restaurant. A timed, competitive race open to the first 100 adult registrants ages 16 and older will kick-off the event. Prizes will be awarded to the top three male and female competitive finishers. Non-competitive waves will follow in order to keep the focus on fun. The non-competitive event will start in waves to ensure all participants have plenty of time to complete the course.Registration costs $35 for the competitive (timed) race and is limited to the first 100 participants. Non-competitive fees are $25 for adults (ages 12 and over), and $15 for children (ages 4-11). A portion of the event proceeds will go to the Lapine/Sunriver Relay for Life.All participants will receive one drink voucher for an age-appropriate beverage at the end of the race, dog tags for completing the race, access to changing tents, and a fire hose rinse off courtesy of the Sunriver Fire Department.Online registration is available until 5p.m. March 22 at www.sunrivermudslinger.com. Race packet pick up (and in-person registration) will be at The Village at Sunriver Ice Rink Saturday, March 22, 11 a.m. to 3 p.m., or the morning of the race 11:30 a.m.-12:30 p.m. near the Sunriver Hola! Restaurant. Race day registration fees are $30 for adults and $18 for children.Contestants are encouraged to bring multiple layers of old clothes they don’t mind getting dirty. The Sunriver Mudslinger website puts it this way: “There is a good chance that whatever you are wearing will never be the same again!”Contestants are strongly encouraged to bring a towel to dry off and an extra set of clothes to change into after the event.Costumes can contribute an additional twist to the event with the caveat that they not impair vision, prevent a contestant from breathing normally or present a tripping or snagging hazard.Local restaurants HOLA!, Bellatazza and Sunriver Brewing Company will provide pre- and post-race snacks and beverages for sale and an adults-only beer garden will be available. Mudslinger T-shirts are available for purchase online or in limited quantities at the event.Given that it will be spring break, a time of year famous for unpredictable weather, it could be a sunny 70 degrees, 50 and raining or snowing and below freezing.Volunteers wantedThe Sunriver Mudslinger is presented by the Sunriver Owners Association Recreation Department, which is also actively recruiting volunteers to help on race day. To volunteer contact Emily Savko at 541-585-3145 or email [email protected] event sponsors are BendBroadband, Sunset Lodging in Sunriver and Vacasa Vacation Rentals.
