Kinetic Grand Championship

A local tradition since 1969, the Kinetic Race is no parade! In the Kinetic Grand Championship, bodies of art and artists' bodies are put to the test. There are 50 miles to go over land, sand, water, and mud. These intrepid Kinetinauts are a unique breed of human. With a heart full of joy and a bucket full of tools, they face innumerable obstacles for just one reason ... For the GLORY!

Founded by metal sculptor Hobart Brown in 1969, this North Coast tradition has grown from a two-block dash down Main Street Ferndale to a 3-day marathon spanning over 40 miles of Humboldt County, California’s towns, beaches, trails, and Rivers every Memorial Day Weekend.
