Take in sweeping views of the Cascade Mountain Range including Mt. Hood, Mt. Jefferson, Three Fingered Jack, North, Middle, and South Sisters, and finally Mt. Bachelor. Upon return to the Start/Finish area back at NW Crossing, all runners will be greeted with great food, cold beer, and a warm tent.
You will be given your Bend Ale Run pint glass, 4 tokens, and free entry into the Bend Ale Festival. Stay and sample some of the 40 beers on tap will enjoying music and great conversation with your friends around one of the many fire pits. Truly a great way to cap off a great run.
