Comments We first arrived in town Fridaywere both surprise how young, vivid and enthusiastic people seems to be here
at FootZone in Downtown Bend , we were welcome by a group of very friendly and professional staff who offered us a Beer …

Saturday, June 11h

at 11 am we came back pick up our race package …
which was just the bib since we decided not to buy the Tech race Shirt and went on checking the starting line to make things a lot easier the next morning at 7 am

then we made up our mind on going for an Hour run at Shelving park

Sunday 12 th
we arrived around 7:15 by car
lot of people and cars but there is lot of parking space
at 8:00 sharp the first wave is unleashed ; we are Wave 3
I decided this way knowing that I am still training on the VFF
A bit of bitumen, then dirt before plunging into the forest
the trail is mostly flat and rolling except for 3 small hills …
a bit to dry unfortunately which was a bit hard on the VFF.
But still awesome


5 aid stations with Water and Sport drinks on the route
plus at the finish post-race goodies with tasty burritos , pizzas and lots of other food provided
Band and Beer garden were there for your enjoyment as well.


a medal or a finisher shirt would have be a nice thing
so I will award a 4 ” toes ” to the organization for this event
