Pacific Crest Weekend Sports Fesitval:Year 12
Participants are greeted by live music and a race expo upon arrival in Sunriver, OR, the site of the Pacific Crest events. The first event of the weekend is the Kid’s Splash, Pedal-n-Dash, which has become a real crowd pleaser and is definitely a hit with pint-sized participants. Saturday starts off with a half marathon and marathon around the perimeter of the Sunriver community, and is followed by a half iron triathlon (1.2mi swim, 58mi bike, 13.1mi run) and endurance duathlon (58mi bike, 13.1mi run) that starts at Wickiup Reservoir in the Deschutes National Forest. Sunday is also packed with action, including a 5k and 10k run/walk, and two separate kid’s events. An Olympic-distance triathlon (1.5k swim, 28mi bike, 10k run) and duathlon (28mi bike, 10k run) are also slated for Sunday.
The half Iron triathlon is typically hailed as the “main event,” as it draws the most competitive and most geographically diverse field of any of the Pacific Crest events. A $5,000 prize purse adds some tough competition into the mix for the half iron event, with $1,000 on the line for both the top male and female.
Pacific Crest has become one of the most popular multi-sport events in the Northwest, bringing thousands of athletes and families to the popular resort community of Sunriver, nestled in the mountains of Central Oregon. This year’s event is slated for June 27-29. Additional information about the Pacific Crest Weekend Sports Festival can be found at www.racecenter.com/pacificcrest.
