Central Oregon Walk/Bike/Swim Festival
Twelve walks, with multiple distances from 5 km (3.1 miles) to 13 km. (8 miles), rated easy or moderately easy.
Two bikes, 22 km. (13.4 miles) and 10 km. (6.2 miles), both rated easy.
One swim, 300 meters (328 yards).
The Central Oregon Festival extends over four days. Each walk, bike, or swim can be done on any of the four days between dawn and dusk. Some involve driving several miles out of Bend, but with planning some of those that are away from Bend can be done enroute on your arrival or departure day. The instructions for each event are online at walk4fun.org, the website of the Columbia River Volkssport Club.
Registration for the events can be done online at walk4fun.org. Daily registration can also be done at the Festival headquarters, the Comfort Inn at 62065 SE 27th Street in Bend, Oregon.
An all-inclusive meet-and-greet will be held at the Comfort Inn on Friday evening. A banquet is also planned there for Saturday evening, but there are no places left for it.
Full details for the Festival, including registration, is found at walk4fun.org. or by Googling Columbia River Volkssport Club.
Central Oregon, especially in September, is a magical place: plan to be there!
