Gold Hill, Ore. -- Around 50 thrill seekers came out to Gold Hill Saturday to try their hand in the King of the Rogue competition.
Kayakers, rafters, and stand up paddle boarders competed with three runs including Grandma's run, the Powerhouse section, and Muggers Alley.
Portland participant, Sam Drevo, said the class three and four rapids are perfect for an eight minute aerobic race, but it's a challenge not everyone can handle.
"We haven't had any injuries thus far, but the paddle boarders have pads on because there is definitely going to be some carnage," Drevo said.
This is the second annual King of the Rogue Race. Proceeds will go to the Gold Hill White Water Center.
