May 20, 2017 at 9:00 am - 6:00 pmFree
The U.S. Bank Pole Pedal Paddle is the largest of all the PPP events in North America and maybe the world! You can do it all yourself or be part of a team (or pair). Bend, Oregon invites you to take part in the festivities and enjoy Central Oregon.
The six categories within the event are:
1 Alpine Ski
This leg starts at the top of Mt. Bachelor’s Red Chair, sprinting uphill then skiing down the LeeWay run.
2 Cross-Country Ski
The XC is an 8 km skate ski and goes to Mt. Bachelor’s Nordic Lodge parking area.
Biking consists of a 22 mile beautiful ride into Bend along Century Drive.
This leg is a 5 mile, single track trail run along the Deschutes River and starts at the Athletic Club.
The water portion goes upstream, then downstream, then upstream again.
The sprint goes under the Columbia Bridge and finishes the race at the arena in Les Schwab Amphitheater.
If you are anywhere near the Pacific Northwest we urge you to stop by have a local micro beer from one of the many amazing breweries and cheer these people on. If you are more into being an active participant check out the registration link below.
