While most of us may be dreaming of snow and crossing our fingers for an epic winter, now is the time to start planning ahead for Pacific Crest Triathlon in Sunriver June 22-24, 2018. If you’ve never participated in the longest running sporting event in Central Oregon, 2018 may be the perfect year for you to start. For many, the Pacific Crest sports weekend has become a long-standing tradition anchored by a fun-filled vacation for the entire family.
Pacific Crest Triathlon 2018
Before booking your Pacific Crest accommodations in Sunriver, you may be wondering how the festival may differ from past years and what to expect. Prepare to have your mind blown:
20 Different Endurance Events
More than just running, there’s a sport for any endurance athlete at the Pacific Crest Weekend Sports Festival. From the 72.3 BEASTMAN Triathlon and the Duathlon and Aquabike events to the Tour de Crest bike ride and the three different kids races, every runner, cyclist, swimmer and triathlete will find the perfect race to feed your need for adrenaline.
Fundraiser for Local Schools, Clubs and Non-Profits
Last year, the Pacific Crest event raised over $50,000 for local schools, clubs and non-profits. This year, Team in Training has announced that Pacific Crest 2018 will be one of their national fundraising events. This means, you’ll see lots of the color purple as teams raise funds for the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society.
Pacific Crest draws in the strongest athletes from all over the country. Race elite level athletes or observe this level of talent in person as they speed across the finish line. The BEASTMAN Triathlon, which is slightly longer than a typical Half Iron, features a prize purse of $5,000! Don’t forget about the awesome medals you can win at the event. For the extra ambitious, try earning the BEAST medal when you participate in two events, or the highly coveted 3-Headed Beast medal for those racing everyday of the event.
Perhaps one of the most highly anticipated events of the whole weekend – after your race, celebrate with family, friends and competitors during the post-event meal, party and expo in The Village at Sunriver. The event features free Deschutes Brewery beer for participants, live music from Hit Machine and food sponsored by Village Bar and Grill. Running shoes double as dancing shoes, right?
Central Oregon Adventure
One of the greatest perks of the Pacific Crest race weekend? All there is do in Central Oregon. Turn this into a race-cation for the entire family. With plenty of hiking, biking, rafting, kayaking, river floating and adventure, there’s no shortage of fun activities for the entire family. Dine at amazing restaurants like Sunriver Brewing Co., go shopping at The Village or head into Bend for even more opportunities. Take advantage of the vibrancy that permeates Central Oregon when you visit for the Pacific Crest Sports Weekend.
