    From Press Release –

    The 2012 Pacific Crest Sports Weekend Sports Festival was held June 22-24, in Sunriver, OR. Despite the unseasonable weather, athletes came out in droves from across the country to participate in the 16th annual event. Among the events was the Pacific Crest Long Course Triathlon, which served as the 2012 TRI NorthWest Long Course Championship.

    Keeping safety a priority, race organizers were forced to shorten the bike route on the Long Course Triathlon due to snow on Mt. Bachelor, and the athletes adapted their race strategies accordingly. Kevin Everett, 37, from Boise, ID, and Mackenzie Madison, 25, from Eugene, OR, were the overall TRI NorthWest Long Course Champions.  Everett clocked a 2:56:02 and Madison finished with 3:36:06.
