Participants will make one clockwise, diamond shaped loop in crystal clear Wickiup Reservoir, surrounded by the tranquil beauty of green forests and majestic mountains. Each leg of the diamond is approximately 0.30 miles and there are 3 total turns.
BIKE - 56.3 Miles
A scenic point-to-point course that travels over gently rolling hills prior to three hard climbs as you make your way around Mt. Bachelor. Cyclists leave the transition zone and ride for approximately 3.15 miles and turn (left) onto FS Hwy 42. You will travel another 4.55 miles crossing the Deschutes River then turning right onto FS Hwy 46 (the Cascades Lakes Hwy). It's now another 32.8 miles before making your next turn (right) onto FS Hwy 45. Within this section there will be long stretches of flat to gently rolling hills followed by three challenging climbs. It culminates with a 2.5-mile steep decline to the intersection of FS Hwys. 45 & 46. The decline flattens out considerably after making the turn onto FS Hwy 45, but continues for another 10 miles or so. After turning left onto FS Hwy 40 at about the 51.9-mile mark it is relatively flat the final 4.4 miles.
RUN - 13.1mi
A mostly flat loop course on widely paved bike paths that traverse through and around this beautiful and scenic destination resort (two hills total with a minimal elevation gain).
