Each year, during the last weekend in June, over 5000 athletes, their family and friends, converge on majestic Central Oregon to take part in the Pacific Crest Weekend Sports Festival. Pacific Crest is known as the jewel of multisport events in the Northwest and it has become a traditional destination race for athletes from across the nation, as well as from across the globe. Coupled with a finishing in a five star destination resort, it is the perfect family vacation destination. You don’t have to take our word for it — join us for this spectacular event and see for yourself.
Pacific Crest events begin Friday morning, with the competition and fun continuing into Sunday afternoon. The full, fun weekend includes Tour de Crest Bike Tours, Long Course, Olympic & Ultra-Sprint Triathlons, Duathlons & AquaBike, Marathon, Half-Marathon, 10k, 5k, 25K & 50K Trail Runs and three kids events – truly something for everyone!
The modern sport of triathlon had its modest beginnings with an event held in Mission Bay in San Diego, CA on September 25, 1974. There were 46 athletes that day. Seven years later, Hagg Lake Triathlon became one of six stops on the Bud Light Triathlon Series Tour drawing about 500 athletes, with Dave Scott coming out on top. Today, as one of the nation’s oldest and longest running triathlon events, Hagg Lake enters its 35th year and it continues to draw upwards of 600+ athletes. Its popularity is rooted in this rich tradition and the exceptional venue, which is one of the most scenic in the country. And, the Hagg Lake course offers a true test of this terrific sport with its rolling hills on both the bike and run leg portions of the event. Make the Hagg Lake Triathlon & Multi-Sport Weekend one of your summer stops and compete on the course that has seen many of the greats in the sport of triathlon.
