This year, the 32nd annual U.S. Bank Pole Pedal Paddle will be held May 17th 2008 in outdoorsy Bend, Oregon. The Les Schwab Amphitheater area will host a day-long festival of various foods, music, sponsor booths and don't forget, all the cheering and spectating of the U.S. Bank Pole Pedal Paddle participants.
RACE TO SUPPORT MBSEF
All proceeds generated from the event will be going to Mt Bachelor Sports Education Foundation. MBSEF is a non-profit organization that promotes and supports amateur alpine, snowboard, cross-country, and cycling training for junior athletes. The main objective is to assist junior athletes in achieving their individual athletic, academic, and personal goals.
The 2008 U.S. Bank Pole Pedal Paddle is Central Oregon's premiere mulit-sporting event. It's a relay race, with six legs that include alpine skiing/snowboarding, cross-country skiing, biking, running, canoe/kayaking and sprinting to the finish! You can do it all yourself or be part of team (or pair). We invite you to take part in the festivities and enjoy the magnificent sites of Central Oregon.
