SELCO PPP-MAY 18th 2024

  • The race begins at Mt. Bachelor Ski Resort at 9:15 a.m. with the first finishers into Riverbend Park in Bend around 11:00 a.m. 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 am. Please keep this in mind, and be ready for customers no later than 10:15 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 just milling around socializing, looking at all the booths and hanging out. Awards are given out from 3:15 p.m. – 4:00 p.m. At 4:00 p.m. you may then break down and start loading up to go.
