It’s the largest multi-sport event in Oregon, and a great opportunity for you to market your business to over 5,000 outdoor recreation enthusiasts.  Please use application links at the bottom of this page, and feel free to reach out to our team via email for more information or with any questions.

SELCO PPP – MAY 18th 2024

The race begins at Mt. Bachelor Ski Resort at 9:15 a.m with the first racers expected to reach the finish line between 11:00 and 11:15am. Because our new course utilizes Riverbend Park for both our run-to-paddle transition and our finish area, spectators may be ready for viewing and making purchases as early as 10:30, when the first runners are due to reach the transition zone. Please keep this in mind, and be ready for customers no later than 10:45 a.m. The day will likely start slow, and then people will come in droves by lunchtime. After 11:30 a.m., there will be a steady stream of racers crossing the finish line. This continues up until about 2:30 p.m. People are then milling around socializing, looking at all the booths and hanging out. Awards are given out on the stage from about 3:15 p.m. – 4:00 p.m. At 4:00 p.m. vendors may break down and start loading up to go.


  • A 10×10 space (some flexibility for food carts)
  • Access to power is available to most, if needed.
  • An organized crew to direct you to your designated area in the morning.
  • Live announcements during the event from the stage to drive traffic to your booth/area.
  • Exposure to thousands of people and an opportunity to participate in an event that is rich with tradition.
  • You will also receive one parking pass and a confirmation email 2 weeks before the event that will give you your allotted check in time and further instructions.
