SELCO Pole Pedal Paddle – May 18, 2024
The Pole Pedal Paddle is a multi-sport race with six legs that include alpine skiing/snowboarding, cross country skiing, biking, running, canoeing/kayaking/stand up paddle boarding and sprinting to the finish.
Complete the race by yourself or in a team or pair. Some 3,100 people participate in this multi-sport race annually.
The event starts with three legs at Mt. Bachelor – a short downhill ski, 8k Nordic race and 22-mile bike ride – before the 5-mile run, 1.5-mile kayak and 3/4 mile sprint legs back down in Bend. Teams, pairs, and individual participants are composed of recreational and expert athletes competing from Mt. Bachelor to the Old Mill District in Bend, Oregon. The West Grass Event Area in the Old Mill District will host a day-long finish festival of various foods, music, sponsor booths and don’t forget, all the cheering and spectating of the PPP participants.
Pole Pedal Paddle supports the work and mission of the Mt. Bachelor Sports Education Foundation (MSBEF). Over 800 young athletes participate in MBSEF’s winter sports programs for junior athletes—alpine and Nordic skiing, snowboarding, freeride skiing, and cycling training.
Our main objective is to assist junior athletes in achieving their individual athletic, academic, and personal goals. Generations of local youth have benefitted from the positive experiences and values nurtured through MBSEF programs—sportsmanship, self-discipline, goal setting, character building, and the pursuit of healthy lifetime activities.
This year’s Pole, Pedal, Paddle will take place on May 19th, 2024. Visit https://pppbend.com to register and for many additional details.Click here to register
