The Buccaneer Rampage is Back!

Do you have what it takes to compete?

The roughest mud obstacle race on the Oregon Coast returns this year, so get ready to release your inner pirate! The Buccaneer Rampage takes place on July 14 at the Newport Municipal Airport, and will feature several miles of challenging obstacles through muddy, swampy terrain. The competitive wave will begin at 11 am, followed by regular wave #1 at 11:10 am, regular wave #2 at 11:15 am, and regular wave #3 at 11:20 am.

Competitors should be prepared to brave mud crawls, puddle jumps, rope walls and other intensive tests of strength and stamina. Prizes will be awarded to the top male and female competitors, and will also be given to those with the best pirate costumes. A mini-kids obstacle race will also be offered this year after most adults have crossed the finish line. The race will be followed by a celebration featuring music, food and a beer garden.

The Rampage is organized by the City of Newport Parks and Recreation, and proceeds from the event go to help the youth sports scholarship program. Participants must be 15 years of age or older to race on the adult course. Check their Facebook page regularly for updated information, and they may also leak some pictures of the course early.

Please make sure you know which wave you are entered in, and arrive 20 minutes prior to your designated wave start. Proceed to the staging area for instructions. Your wave time will be listed on your receipt. Visit www.buccaneerrampage.com for more information and to register for the race.
