Eschewing traditional race rules and methods, Dirty Dashers must overcome a slew of mud-slicked obstacles, including mucky climbing hills, crawling pipes, slip 'n slides, and bear hugs from Pigpen. Organizers encourage runners to sign up with friends to foster a fun-loving environment, and along the way, racers fuel up at optional beer- or root-beer-chugging stations. Further demonstrating its commitment to outdoor high jinks, each event's registration fees, donations, water-balloon sales, and shoe donations benefit local charities, such as NM[X]—an arts and athletics youth organization—and the Seattle-based Redeeming Soles charity, which dispenses gently used footwear to those in need.

Among the forests and hills of the Willamette Valley, Highway 58 Golf Range fills with the staccato pops of launching golf balls as golfers there practice every aspect of the game. Guests tee their range balls up year-round on either natural-grass tees or covered mats, sending the balls soaring toward Mount Pisgah in the distance. A short-game area allows for focused practice of near-green finesse, complete with a putting green, a chipping area, and a bunker where golfers perfect saves and practice guessing how many grains of sand are in a jar to win it.

Diamond Hill Paintball's two outdoor fields evoke historical battlegrounds for tournament-style and recreational play. A net encloses the regulation NPPL speedball course, whose symmetrical layout of inflatable bunkers is designed for intense competition. The rec-ball field's mounds and muddy foxholes help conceal casual players as they advance and protect feral canvases from the Technicolor volley. A unit of paintball veterans ensures safe, fun play at all levels, and distributes safety gear to accompany Tippmann 98 rental markers.

Q&A with Ashley Brack, Owner

Exercise is challenging, and people frequently give up on their fitness routines. How do you keep clients motivated?

I offer a new perspective to fitness and group fitness. My classes are designed to get you out of your comfort zone. I will keep it fast paced and change up the routines so that your body does not get used to it and so that you don't get bored.

Sweating to the oldies is acceptable, but sweating to the blues less so. Do you find that certain styles and genres of music generate more intense workouts?

Yes, fast-paced [music] with dance beats keeps the calories burning.

When and how did you first develop a passion for fitness?

[I] started in gymnastics when I was 5 years old. Mary Lou Retton was my idol. I have always loved fitness.

Ugly Christmas sweaters have become a modern holiday tradition, and in that spirit they are the symbol of Oregon's Ugliest Sweater Run. Runners dressed in their gaudiest knits will run (or walk) a 5K course trimmed with garland and lights, stopping if they choose for photo ops at each of a dozen stations themed after the 12 Days of Christmas. Beginning in Alton Baker Park and finishing at 5th St. Public Market, the race will culminate in an after party as festive as the run itself. As a DJ plays holiday tunes, runners can sign up for fruitcake-eating and eggnog-chugging contests. Those without iron stomachs can still get into the competitive spirit by contributing to an attempt to claim the Guinness World Record for Largest Gathering of People Wearing Ugly Christmas Sweaters.

In lieu of paying for parking, you can bring an unwrapped toy or five non-perishable food items. However, cash payments will all be donated to three charities: Toys for Tots, Food for Lane County Food Drive, and the Foster and Adoptive Parent Association of Lane County. Like Santa's Christmas-Eve duties or Mrs. Claus's epic knitting circles, Oregon's Ugliest Sweater Run is an all-weather event.

Looking to showcase local wines and bring the community together, the Fern Ridge Chamber of Commerce opened Wineries without Walls, a tasting room and wine shop highlighted in the Oregon Wine Press. Outfitted with a bar made from two wine barrels and a marble slab, the tasting room pours out libations from such wineries as J. Scott Cellars, Stanton Vineyard, and William Rose Wines. To ensure all bottles tasted, sold, or juggled by off-duty circus performers in the shop remain local, Wineries without Walls stipulates that each batch be crafted, the grapes grown, or the winery situated within 30-miles of Veneta.

Though Wineries without Walls offers limited store hours—Fridays and Saturdays from noon to 7 p.m.—customers can still get a bang for their buck as vineyard owners host regular wine tastings there. The boutique shop also packs its shelves with an array of handmade confections, crafts, and wine accessories.
