Little Hurt is a multi-sport event designed to expose youth to competitions that include multiple sports, and to encourage participation in healthy activities that take advantage of the infrastructure and organizations available in the community. This event will take place on the Sunday after the Big Hurt, and we encourage participants to watch the fun on Saturday for inspiration!

The Little Hurt event is supported and organized via a partnership between Peninsula Adventure Sports (producers of the Big Hurt), Lincoln Park BMX, Olympic Peninsula Rowing Association and Port Angeles School District AmeriCorps team.

Little Hurt includes 3 legs – biking on the Lincoln Park BMX track, rowing on rowing machines provided by the Olympic Peninsula Rowing Association, and trail running in Lincoln Park. Each participant does all of the legs – there is not a relay option for Little Hurt. 

There will be opportunities leading up to the event for kids to practice and train – follow Big Hurt on social media and check back on the website to learn about these pre-events sponsored by Lincoln Park BMX, Olympic Peninsula Rowing Association, and Port Angele School District Americorps team. 

THE COURSE:

Little Hurt will be a timed multi-sport event where every individual is required to perform the below listed activities prescribed for their age group and finish in the best time that they are able to achieve.   Each time that a participant finishes one activity they will need to run to a central location and ring the Big Hurt bell before they can start the next activity.  After their last event they will race to the finish line, ring the bell and the total sum of time it took them to do each event and then ring the bell will be added up to give them their final time and placement within their category.  There will be 1st, 2nd and 3rd place awards (boys and girls) as well as participation medals.
