ABOUT THE PACIFIC CREST WEEKEND SPORT FESTIVAL 
Each year, during the last weekend in June, athletes, their family and friends, converge on beautiful 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. It’s also a traditional event for Leukemia & Lymphoma Society’s Team in Training fundraising efforts, where their participants have raised over $1.2 million over the years.

PacificCrestPacific 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 and Olympic Triathlons, Endurance and Olympic Duathlons, 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.

You can view the last year’s Pacific Crest Official Handbook online for all the pertinent details about the reacs, courses, maps, events and more (details subject to change; the majority of the information will be the same for 2015). An updated Handbook for 2015 will be posted in late May/early June.
