Horse Butte 10 Mile Trail Run

Horse Butte Trail RunHorse Butte 10 miler has a field limit of 200 runners which has kept its small race feel intact as it has gained popularity. The course, not so spring like weather, and post race Oregon Country Beef hot dog barbecue have become synonymous with spring trail running in Bend.

This course turns from dirt road to singletrack in the first half mile and stays single track for the next 9.5. The course is mostly uphill for the first 5 miles with much of the gain for the whole loop coming from miles 2-5. The one aid station is located at mile 5.4 after which you get a break from climbing until the short but memorable bump just after mile 8. The remainder of the course is fairly flat with some of the most technical footing coming in the last quarter mile. Technical info aside, the course weather permitting, is in my opinion one of the most visually appealing courses. Great views of the high desert and mountains can be had especially on the way back in from the aid station. If you have never done this event put it on your to do list!

Where: The race starts and finishes at Horse Butte in Bend, Oregon. Directions to the race from Footzone:

  • Turn left off of Wall st at Franklin, take first left onto Bond st, proceed North on Bond to Greenwood and turn right.
  • Stay on Greenwood for 2.5 miles until you reach 27th st, turn right on 27th and head south on 27th for 3.5 miles and take a left onto Rickard.
  • Travel 2 miles on Rickard and take a right onto Billadeau Rd.
  • In one mile cross Arnold Market and you are now on Horse Butte Rd.
  • In a mile Horse Butte road will turn to gravel road FS 1815 take your first right in about a 1/3 of a mile. Park where instructed by Volunteers.

2017 Bend Bike Swap

Bend Bike Swap

The fourth annual Bend Bike Swap will give cyclists of all stripes a venue to buy and trade their two-wheelers in preparation for the upcoming cycling season.

A wide variety of bicycles will be available, from toddler-sized scooters to high-end road, mountain and cyclocross bikes. Most popular — and therefore the quickest to sell out — are commuter and cruiser bikes. A helmet-fitting station for children will be on hand, as will a miniature obstacle course. Spare components, such as seat posts, crank arms and cogs.

Dates and times: The Bend Bike Swap check-in hours will be 3 to 6 p.m. April 6 and 9 to 11 a.m. April 7. Sales hours will be noon to 6 p.m. April 7 and 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. April 8. Item pick-up will be 4 to 6 p.m. April 8.

The Bike Swap began as the brainchild of Ryan McGlone, a Boneyard Cycling team member that was looking for new ways to give back to the local community. After sharing this idea with other team members over frosty pints it was clear that Bend was in need of a bike swap and it was up to Boneyard to make it happen. All the team needed was a place to hold the event. As word spread, local business owner Matt Massingale generously stepped in and offered up Cascade Rack’s retail space as the first venue location. Armed with a shoestring budget and limited planning, the First Annual Bend Bike Swap boasted serious promise yielding $12,000 in sales, raising just over a thousand dollars for local beneficiaries Mount Bachelor Sports Education Foundation and Bend Endurance Academy. From there we knew this needed to become an annual event!

The 20th Annual Chainbreaker XC

Presented by the Bend Endurance Academy

This is the 20th annual Cascade Chainbreaker presented by the Bend Endurance Academy.

Held entirely on the private land of the Skyline Forest, northwest of Bend, this course features an uphill gravel start, a mix of flowing singletrack and fast doubletrack for passing. The Two Bulls Fire destroyed much of the old course in 2014 so the 2015 course went to a longer single-lap format. With a generally non-technical beginner loop and usually friendly weather, it’s a great race for beginners to try some racing.

Food and drinks (and Chainbreaker IPA from Deschutes Brewery, of course) are available at the finish.

Free Kids Race; cash purse for top 5 men and top 5 women; and awards with goodie bags are held onsite.

For more information, visit the OregonXC Series website.

The 2017 High Cascades 100

The High Cascades 100 is a Central Oregon MTB race like no other!

Mud Slinger EventsIt challenges elite pro racers and hard core weekend chargers alike to cover 100 miles of amazing Central Oregon single track — and climb around 8,000′ in the process.

The course changes each year and will be posted on their website as race day gets closer.

Top pros will finish in under 8 hours duking it out the whole way, and it’s not uncommon for the last finisher to arrive at sunset around the 15 hour mark.

Now, a race like this is not to be taken lightly. As their website FAQ says: “Most likely injury: Collarbone followed by laceration.” If that sounds hard core (and it is), consider volunteering. Helping the athletes who compete in this race at aid stations, at the start, or at the finish is a fun experience — and something that feels great to be a part of. Contact the HC100 Volunteer Coordinator for more info.

Learn more about The High Cascades 100 at their website or view the 2016 High Cascades 100 results.
