Event Description

Can you survive the Purge?  How many one-mile laps (with over 400 feet of gain per lap) can you run or ruck in two hours?!  

With elevation spiking near 1350 feet, and an elevation gain of about 400 feet per mile, Townsend’s Pipeline Purge will push your body to the limit. This one-mile figure-eight course sends you up the pipeline, around the trails, and back to the base checkpoint to do it all again. Each lap will be counted as you cross the checkpoint.

Ruckers welcome! Ruckers must provide their own packs and weights; Wear a Ruck/backpack with the standard weight-10# for participants 150 lbs. and under, and 20# for those over 150 lbs.  Your ruck will be weighed at the beginning of the race. No participants will be weighed, weight requirements are on the honor system. Most females carry 10# and most males carry 20#.

This is an untimed race, just complete as many laps as you can!

In the event of a tie, runners and ruckers in each heat will be challenged to TWO MINUTES of burpees! The runner and rucker completing the most burpees in two minutes will be deemed the winners..YES, BURPEES after this horrid hill buster...(you know you love it!!)


Relax at the post-race Pipeline party with Sly Fox Brewery, music, food and drinks.  All participants receive a Purge t-shirt and custom glass; top survivors get some cool awards!
