The 2019 High Cascades 100

The High Cascades 100 is a Central Oregon MTB race like no other!

Mud Slinger EventsIt challenges elite pro racers and hard core weekend chargers alike to cover 100 miles of amazing Central Oregon single track — and climb around 8,000′ in the process.

The course changes each year and will be posted on their website as race day gets closer.

Top pros will finish in under 8 hours duking it out the whole way, and it’s not uncommon for the last finisher to arrive at sunset around the 15 hour mark.

Now, a race like this is not to be taken lightly. As their website FAQ says: “Most likely injury: Collarbone followed by laceration.” If that sounds hard core (and it is), consider volunteering. Helping the athletes who compete in this race at aid stations, at the start, or at the finish is a fun experience — and something that feels great to be a part of. Contact the HC100 Volunteer Coordinator for more info.

Learn more about The High Cascades 100 at their website.
