Yes Hagg Mud 50K/25K

February 18, 2023
Gaston, Oregon
50K, 25K and doubles (50K+25K & 25K+25K)

An Oregon classic ultra since 2001, Hagg Mud is a race you’ve got to try at least once. If you’re looking for a mid-winter challenge, look no further than the ORRC Hagg Mud – a 50k and 25k on the muddy, rolling trails around Hagg Lake, just outside of Portland. A fantastic event for the first-time trail runner as well as the experienced trail vet, Hagg Mud offers an old school ultra-experience with all of the perks of the newest races. Enjoy fully stocked aid stations, a well-marked course, heated changing tents, finishers swag, and hot lunch with celebratory beer when you finish. If you’re looking for a little extra challenge, consider the Hagg Mud Double; run both races (one on Saturday, one on Sunday) and earn a growler full of your favorite beverage.

While the trail is in better shape than ever, we will still offer one of the muddiest, gnarliest trail runs you’re going to find this winter. Whether this will be your first Hagg Mud or your 15th, we promise to bring you a top notch event with well stocked aid stations, a hot meal, cold beer, and epic swag. We remain a non-profit race with any proceeds benefitting the Oregon Road Runner Club.

Hagg Mud seeks to foster a trail running community that encourages understanding, appreciation and acceptance of all within its participants, volunteers and race officials. We believe that broad and diverse participation adds significant value to the trail running experience for all of us. We will be keeping the non-binary gender category to our race this year. While we are unable to designate this option within Ultrasignup, we will be able to add your preferred gender to our results. There is a question on the signup page that will allow you to choose the non-binary gender designation; we will amend our final results to reflect your preferred gender category. Additional information on our efforts towards greater inclusion can be found on our website.

Trail Mix Fund:
One of the things we strive for is to create inclusion and equality in the running community. As much as we want to say that all you need to run is a pair of shoes, we know the reality is much more complex. This year, we are excited to join teams with the Trail Mix Fund to ensure that all are welcome to the trail running community. If you are a member of the BIPOC and/or the LGBTQIA+ community, we encourage you to apply to have your race entry fees covered at: https://trailmixfund.org/. The Trail Mix Fund also supports those who cannot afford race fees. You are welcome and wanted at our race. Please do not hesitate to email us as well with any questions!
