The Course

Central Oregon has many races throughout the year and although they are unique in their own ways, they are nothing like this race.  Ever wonder what it would be like to be on a ranch? Well, here is your chance!


RISE Ranch Challenge combines cowboy and ranch style obstacles and challenges for a rootin' tootin' farm hand experience! Conquer Fresh Obstacles and Challenges in a Unique, Grass Roots Event!


All challenges are based upon real ranch tasks and many will benefit our local farm animal sanctuary! Embrace your 'natural strength' as you complete the wheel barrel task, test your agility over the hay bail hurdles, and steady your hand on the lasso.

RISE Ranch Challenge builds community. As racers finish, we often see them cheering on those still racing. It is about everyone accomplishing their goal and helping others. Past events have had friendships formed literally on the race course and the camaraderie is contagious. This is much bigger than just a race, fitness challenge, or competition.

Rise Ranch Challenge features more chores, less running! Expect approximately 2.5-3 miles filled with obstacles and challenges.

Rise Ranch Challenge is a Proud Sponsor of Harmony Farm Sanctuary.

Harmony Farm Sanctuary creates a space to rehabilitate farm animals who are in need of being rescued, and bring the connection between humans and animals.  

Harmony Farm Sanctuary holds a special place in the founder/race director's heart...not only volunteering there but personally raising over $2300 and completing (20hrs, 51min) a very grueling 48hr challenge called the Devil's Double.
