The K-Hound Award was initiated by Dallas RBA Dan Driscoll as an honor for riders who accumulated at least 10,000 km during a calendar year. A few years later, it was adopted as a RUSA award. Initially, only events on RUSA's calendar and RUSA permanents were counted. In later years, the set of qualifying rides was expanded to include PBP and foreign Grande Randonnées sanctioned by LRM. RUSA adopted the award in 2014..
