SR Scene PCSWF article

There is an article in the Sunriver Scene by Why Racing’s own President, Sherri McMillan!  It talks about race preparation and registration.  You’ll find it on page 14.  If you’re local, you can pick up a copy of the Scene most anywhere in Sunriver.  Or you can find it online here:

We’re getting more and more excited as the date gets closer!  Are you participating?!

The Meetings Have Begun!

Posted on

While not much has changed in the Public Eye, behind the scenes is ramping up with meetings and emails and logistics, OH MY!  There’s lots to get taken care of by June.  There are literally hundreds of people working behind the scenes, collaborating to place the puzzle pieces together for a seamless Pac Crest 20th Anniversary!

While we do all this leg work, hopefully you’re keeping up with your own kind of leg work for the Olympic Marathon, the Tour de Crest Bike Ride, or the full on Triathlon. Or, if you’re hardcore, Go Beast and participate in TWO events and get some sweet BLING!  Registration can be found HERE.

Sign Up, Prep Up, Show Up, Show OFF!

Keep Fit for Pac Crest!

Posted on

During the snowy winter months here in Sunriver, it’s easy to cozy up next to a fire with some hot chocolate and not venture out into the outdoors.  But, if you’re here and looking to keep yourself in shape or maybe just starting to prep for the big 20 year anniversary race, here are some ways you can do that in Central Oregon!


  • Gyms: Central Oregon has Crossfit places and plenty of other local gyms.  In Sunriver, there’s our own local Ambush Fitness.  Their website is, email, and their phone number is 541-848-8342  Keep warm and fit at Ambush Fitness!
  •  Cross Country/Nordic Skiing: Sunriver’s golf courses become fantastic routes for cross country skiing!  Mt. Bachelor also provides cross country skiing routes. If you don’t have your own gear, there are several shops in the Village at Sunriver that will rent you what you need.  Nordic skiing is a top tier manner for keeping fit in the winter months!
  • Running/Walking Paths: Even when the snow falls, sometimes the nest way to keep in shape for a run is to run.  Sunriver works hard to keep their paved paths plowed when the rest of the world is covered in the white stuff.  Watch for ice and dress appropriately, but be assured, you can get out there are practice even during winter.
  •  Sage Springs Spa, Club, and Gym: Sunriver Lodge runs this upscale, fully staffed Spa.  Tennis, gym and full spa offerings are available.  Massages are always great after a workout or just to loosen up.  Check out their lineup at

Never give up!  There’s always a way to keep yourself ready for the PacCrest!  We’ll see you in June!

Lodging Getting Limited

Posted on Updated on

If you’re planning on staying in Sunriver for the Pac Crest Weekend, lodging is getting fairly scarce.  Each vacation rental company is down to less than 20 homes!  Our partner company, Cascara Vacation Rentals, only has about 15.  Make sure and grab yours before they’re gone, because the final last minute bookings we’re told happen this weekend!  Stay Local, friends!  We’re honored to be hosted in Sunriver and we’d be honored if you’d support them!  See you on the course!

This is it!   This is the month of the Pacific Crest Weekend Sports Festival!  We’re feeling the calm before the storm.  Actually, we’ve been feeling the storms.  We’ve had a few downpours with some thunder as of late.  Here’s to hoping that this too shall pass and the weather for PacCrest will be beautiful!  Well, beautiful for the athletes anyway.

Are you coming to Sunriver for the big event?  There’s a bit of housing available with our partner, Cascara Vacation Rentals, but they’re going fast, so get your home reserved today!  Also, if you haven’t registered yet,  get over to  and make sure you’re all set to compete!  Bike, Run, Swim….  Have Fun!
