About Us

I like riding bikes and running and supporting people who ride bikes or run.

My main sport is Mountain biking and I encourage everyone who loves a particular sport or desires to see things progress is to donate 8 hrs of your time per year and or 8 hrs of your money to a good Non profit supporting outdoor adventures.

What else?

Born and raised in Eugene, Oregon with stops in Corvallis, Bend and Coburg, we make our home in Monroe, Oregon with our 3 daughters and awesome wife!

Mudslinger Events DBA Oregon Trail Runs has been in operation since 2003, operating cycling (mountain, road, and gravel), Running events are under the Oregon Trail Runs Brand (road and trail )

Personally, I have produced events since 1991 and also founded the Alsea Falls Trail System and started Team Dirt! WOW, how that system has grown and has so many dedicated leaders and volunteers.

Mudslinger Events also operates as a consultation service to assist with the permitting and logistics of your event.

In 2018 we gave back or contributed to over 40,000 in fundraising to local community groups and others in the region. We look to do more in 2019, working with trail groups and especially PTSD awareness for our first responders and military.
