Each year, during the last weekend in June, over 5,000 athletes, their family and friends, converge on majestic Central Oregon to take part in the Pacific Crest Weekend Sports Festival. Pacific Crest is known as the jewel of multisport events in the Northwest and it has become a traditional destination race for athletes from across the nation, as well as from across the globe. Coupled with a finishing in a five star destination resort, it is the perfect family vacation destination. You don’t have to take our word for it — join us for this spectacular event and see for yourself.
Pacific Crest events begin Friday morning, with the competition and fun continuing into Sunday afternoon. The full, fun weekend includes Tour de Crest Bike Tours, Long Course, Olympic & Ultra-Sprint Triathlons, Duathlons & AquaBike, Marathon, Half-Marathon, 10k, 5k and three kids events – truly something for everyone! Plus, The Village shopping area in Sunriver becomes the Athletes Village and Sports & Fitness Expo, with a terrific assortment of gear, clothing, health products, food and beverages to sample and fun “giftables” to purchase. In the Deschutes Brewery Beer Garden, next to the Village Bar and Grill, athletes, family and friends can enjoy Deschutes Brewery beers, great food, and live entertainment throughout the weekend. Bands from around the region will perform Friday and Saturday nights to Rock the Village and keep the celebration in full swing. Plus local groups will entertain the crowd through the afternoons Friday and Saturday.
Join the many thousands of athletes who have enjoyed the Pacific Crest experience and take this opportunity for fun, camaraderie, and most of all – some of the best competitive racing you will find in the country. It’s an ideal active family vacation opportunity in beautiful Sunriver, in the heart of scenic Central Oregon.
The event often SELLS OUT so it is advised you register as soon as possible – especially since this is the 20th Anniversary so you know it’s going to be special! There is only enough room for 1,000 bikes in the triathlon and duathlon events. You don’t want to miss out on this spectacular event!

Three Rivers Cares for Kids Foundation, which serves approximately 2,000 kids in the local area, supports many children’s activities through programs including: Healthy Beginnings free health screenings; New Generations low-income day-care; enhanced math and science programs and field trips for local public K-8 schools; and grants to offset “pay-to-play activities fees, for 4-H, Boy Scouts, Lego Robotics competitions, parenting classes and more. Proceeds from the Pacific Crest Splash, Pedal-n-Dash and Kids Dashes go directly to benefit their efforts. Contact Jim Manary, 541-408-7747 for more info.

The guild engages in selected charitable endeavors in Central Oregon. Hundreds of quilts and other handmade items have been donated to area organizations such as Family Access Network, Grandma’s House, the Dialysis Centers, veterans’ groups and others. These donations are supported by the proceeds from the bazaar.
