Welcome

The 17th Annual Pacific Crest Weekend Sports Festival, presented by Sunriver Vacations, provides a unique opportunity for athletes to compete and fundraiser towards their personal causes. We are proud to share that $1.75 million have been raised through these efforts. Please join us in supporting their missions!

TEAM IN TRAINING®

We are pleased to announce that the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society’s (LLS) Team In Training (TNT) program has been chosen as the Premier Charity Partner of the Pacific Crest Weekend Sports Festival. TNT athletes have raised over $1 million for LLS through their participation in Pacific Crest events. This year we are excited to welcome TNT participants who are fundraising for this wonderful cause from the Oregon & SW Washington; Washington & Alaska; and San Francisco Chapters. To learn about how you can participate with TNT, visit www.teamintraining. org. To learn more about the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society, please visit www.lls.org. ABOUT TEAM IN TRAINING® Bruce Cleland had no idea of the kind of impact he was going to have on the lives of so many. In 1988, he assembled a team to run in the NYC Marathon to raise money in honor of his daughter, a leukemia survivor. 38 runners raised $322,000 for The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society’s funding of blood cancer research. 25 years, 1.3 billion dollars and 570,000 participants later, Team In Training (TNT) has become the most influential endurance sports training program for charity in the world. TNT isn’t about the training or nutrition or gear clinics or the expert coaching you’ll receive. It’s not about cool event locations or the sport you choose – full or half-marathons, sprint triathlons, hike adventures or cycle centuries. It’s about your passion and desire to change the world by helping fund cures for cancer. It’s about saving lives, not someday, but TODAY. For 25 years, TNT has been the leader in training everyday people to do endurance events while changing the cancer world with every mile we walk, run, hike, pedal or swim. We are closer than ever to a world without cancer because of TNT efforts. Join us in celebrating our 25th Anniversary by learning about and participating in this life changing program! www.teamintraining.org

THREE RIVERS CARE FOR KIDS PACIFIC CREST OFFICIAL YOUTH BENEFICIARY Three Rivers Care for Kids Foundation was founded in 2003 and serves approximately 2,000 kids under the age of 18 in the area between Bend and La Pine, Oregon. Funds raised support many children’s activities including: Healthy Beginnings free health screenings; New Generations low-income day care; enhanced science and math programs and field trips for the local K-8 public school; grants to offset “pay-to-play” activities fees for low-income kids to participate in school athletics; grants to local 4-H clubs, Boy Scouts, Lego Robotics competition, building bus stop shelters and providing scholarships for parenting classes. Proceeds from the Kids Splash Pedal-N-Dash and Kids Dash go directly to benefit their efforts.

CENTRAL OREGON NON-PROFITS, ORGANIZATIONS & OTHER GREAT CAUSES

Pacific Crest has had the opportunity to contribute over $500,000 to numerous Central Oregon non-profit groups, including but not limited to: Girl Scouts, Boy Scouts, Campfire, 4-H, Habitat for Humanity, High School sports and educational programs, and various Central Oregon P.E.O. groups. Additionally, Pacific Crest has been utilized by numerous charities as a fundraising vehicle for their causes, including TEAM DEFEAT MS who has had athletes from around the country convene at Pacific Crest to raise over $175,000 for MS research through their participation! Are you fundraising through Pacific Crest? We’d love to hear about it at events@aasportsltd.com

KIDS SPLASH PEDAL-N-DASH – ages 12 & under

Our traditional Splash Pedal-n-Dash is staged at the SHARC, within walking distance of the Athletes Village. Kids start the event in the SHARC Amphitheater by maneuvering through an inflatable obstacle course and wading pools. Then they’re directed to the parking lot transition to get their bikes. Older racers, ages 9 to 12, exit the parking lot on the north and circle the SHARC, then follow the bike path to the back side of the Community Church parking lot. Younger racers, ages 4 to 8, exit the parking lot on the south and ride on the bike path to the back side of the church. Kids enter the transition at the church and are directed out on the run path along Abbot Drive, toward the Finish Line at Athletes Village. Access to and from the SHARC is via the Beaver Drive path. Parents can meet their children at the Finish Line. Below is a guideline for the transition areas, start times and how to prepare your child for this event. Maps will be provided at the Packet Pickup/Registration tent. 2:00pm Transition area at SHARC opens for bike check-in. Place your child’s bike on the parking line behind their age cone. Handlebars should be facing north for ages 9 to 12 and south for ages 4 to 8. PLEASE HOLD ONTO YOUR CHILD’S BIKE HELMET, AS THEY WILL NEED TO WEAR IT AT THE START THE SPLASH. 3:45pm Transition area closes. All bikes must be staged in the transition area at this time. Parents should be in the spectator area in the SHARC Amphitheater. Please do not climb over, under or through the fencing/flagging. Please DO NOT allow kids to get close to the red timing mats by the pools before the start of the event, as their time will be activated. If you want two of your children to go together, and they are in different age groups, please have them start with the younger group. All starts are in a time-trial format, two starting at a time through the slide/wading pools. Kids must have their SHOES, BIB AND BIKE HELMET ON AT THE START.

COURSES

SWIM — 1.2 miles — Participants make one clockwise diamond-shaped loop in the crystal clear waters of Wickiup Reservoir at Gull Point. MARKING: Large buoys designate the swim course. Kayakers, medics, and the Coast Guard Reserve are positioned on the water to support the swimmers. WMI and La Pine Fire & Rescue are present on the beach to provide medical / safety support. WATER TEMPERATURE: Water temperature is expected to be in the lower to mid-60. The lake temperature will be taken on Friday (posted at the info tent in Athletes Village) and the morning of the race. Wetsuits are recommended. Practice swimming prior to race day is at your own risk. BIKE — 58 miles —A scenic point-to-point course that travels over gently rolling hills prior to three hard climbs as you make your way around Mt. Bachelor. Cyclists leave the transition zone and ride for approximately 3.15 miles and turn left onto FS Hwy 42. Riders travel another 4.55 miles, cross the Deschutes River, then turn right onto FS Hwy 46 (the Cascades Lakes Hwy). It’s another 32.8 miles before the next (right) turn onto FS Hwy 45. Within this section there will be long stretches of flat to gently rolling hills, followed by three challenging climbs. It continues with a 2.5-mile steep decline to the intersection of FS Hwys 45 & 46. The decline flattens out considerably after making the turn onto FS Hwy 45, but continues for another 10 miles or so. After turning left onto FS Hwy 40 at about

Pacific Crest Weekend Sports Festival

the 51.9-mile mark, it is relatively flat for the final 4.4 miles, finishing at T-2 at Three Rivers School in Sunriver Business Park. BIKE ELEVATIONS: The first climb begins just past Elk Lake Resort, approximately 27 miles into the bike course. Just north of Elk Lake, the course begins to climb for approximately 650 ft, passing Devils Lake before reaching a flat spot, then climbing again to Todd Lake (elev. 6,150 ft). Next is another flat spot, at about the 35-mile mark, before the final climb to the entrance to Mt. Bachelor (6,500 ft, about 38 miles into the ride). Riders will enjoy a 14+ mile downhill section. The first 2.5 miles are steep with a sharp 90-degree turn onto FS Hwy 45. *CAUTION: The 14-mile downhill section includes a 90-degree right hand turn from FS Hwy 46 (Cascades Lakes Hwy) onto FS Hwy 45. Please slow down when making this turn. A sign “Slow Down” is placed ¼-mile prior to this turn. Please use common sense and reduce your bike speed appropriately in order to make a safe turn. EMS support is located along the bike course. BIKE COURSE HYDRATION STATIONS: Water and Heed Electrolyte will be available at the hydration stations. (Note: participants must toss empty water bottles to the Hydration Station personnel before receiving a new one - this is to prevent debris along this scenic highway.) Do not expect to have your tossed water bottles returned to you. Hydration stations are located at approximately the 17.1-mile, 31.4-mile and the 38-mile mark locations. They are located at wide turnouts in the road and on an incline, so it should not be necessary for you to slow down. Participants are responsible for carrying their own food supplements. DO NOT LITTER the roadway with any bottles or wrappers. Littering is an automatic disqualification as it affects our ability to maintain a permit with the USFS. Porta Potties are located at each hydration station. RUN – 13.1 miles - From T-2, participants run a 13.1-mile course circling Sunriver on wide, paved, very scenic asphalt bike paths, through meadows and forests, past rivers, beautifully landscaped golf greens and summer homes. MARKING: The run course is marked with white lime and pink directional signs, and monitored by volunteers. Each mile is marked with a purple mileage sign. The run course, including mile markers, will be marked by Thursday morning. PORTA POTTIES: Located approximately every mile at each hydration station. A CLIF SHOT Energy Zone with CLIF SHOT Energy Gels is located just before mile 9. COMMUNICATIONS: Every hydration station on the run course has radio communication with the finish line and the course managers. Contact someone at a hydration station if you need assistance. THE START: Participants should be positioned at the race start by 8:45am for pre-event instructions. TRIATHLETES: Wave starts will be noted on your race packet and posted on the website.

wave will leave at 9:00am. DUATHLETES: 9:00am Time-Trial start with two riders starting approximately every 15 seconds. Cyclists form two parallel lines six feet back from the bike start timing mats. Order is first in line, first to depart. EQUIPMENT/ITEMS AT TRANSITION AREAS & FINISH LINE: All participants should bring two large towels (one for each transition area). These are to be used to designate your space at your assigned bike rack (based on race number). Participants receive one plastic bag with their race number on it at packet pickup. This bag is to be used at T-1 (Swim / Bike transition) to contain all your personal items (including wetsuit) for transport back to T-2 at Three Rivers School. Each participant MUST place all their personal items in their bag themselves, and then tie the bag closed. Loose items will be turned in to Lost & Found at the Village (Packet Pickup/Registration Tent). Participants are to bring their run items to T-2 between 12:00pm and 8:00pm on Friday, or between 6:00am and 8:00am on race day. All personal items must be picked up at T-2 within two hours after completing the race, or no later than 6:00pm. IMPORTANT: All personal items must be marked with your race bib number. For the safety of your equipment, only participants are allowed to pick up their equipment by displaying their race number and wristband.

LONG COURSE TRI/DU

T-1 (SWIM / BIKE TRANSITION) at North Wickiup Boat Ramp: A hydration station with water and Heed Electrolyte is located at T-1. Swimmers exit the water and cross the timing mats on their way to the transition area. TEAMS must make a conversion by touching fingertips in the designated location (sign will indicate “Team Tag”) at each transition. The finishing swimmer for each team must turn in their Timing Chip at T-1. Participants must place all of their belongings into the plastic bag marked with their race number and tie it closed prior to exiting the transition area to begin the bike leg. Race Officials are not responsible for any unmarked, non-bagged items left at the transition zone. Loose/unmarked items will be taken to Lost & Found in Athletes Village (Packet Pickup/Registration Tent). The bag containing your personal items will be transported back to T-2 at Three Rivers School for pick up after completing the race. Participants must walk or run their bike out of the transition area and cross the timing mats before mounting their bike (just past “Bike Mount” sign), and helmets must be worn and fastened prior to mounting your bike. T-2 (BIKE / RUN TRANSITION): T-2 is located at Three Rivers School at the Sunriver Business Park. A hydration station with water and Heed Electrolyte, as well as Porta Potties, is located at T-2. Participants need to have staged their run equipment at the transition area prior to leaving for the lake and the start of the race. Cyclists must dismount their bike prior to entering the transition area and crossing the timing mats. Participants must place all of their belongings on their towel at their designated bike rack location. This helps ensure that the athletes on either side of you do not mistakenly pick up your belongings. After making the transition, runners will exit the transition area running over a second set of timing mats and follow the markings directing them to the Sunriver bike path for the half-marathon run. TEAMS: The cyclist must make the conversion by touching the fingertips of their teammate at the designated (Team Tag) location. The cyclists for each team must turn in their Timing Chip at the team holding area in T-2. SPECIAL NOTE: Absolutely No Parking is permitted on South Century Drive next to the T-2 Transition.

Race belts may be purchased at the Pacific Crest merchandise tent in the main Sports & Fitness Expo area. WRISTBAND: All Long Course triathletes and Endurance duathletes will receive a pink wristband at packet pickup, which should be worn at all times.

BIKE & HELMET NUMBERS: Each participant receives a bike and helmet number corresponding to their race number. Attach the bike number to your bike prior to checking it in at the lake, and place the helmet number on the front of your helmet prior to the start of the race. PLASTIC BAG: Each participant receives one plastic bag, clearly marked with their race number, to be used at T-1. All participants are responsible for placing their personal items into their pre-marked bags and tying the bag closed prior to leaving the transition area during the race.

Security will be at the lake starting at 12:00pm on Friday. All bikes and gear left overnight at T-1 will be in a lighted area and guarded by security personnel. NOTE! Due to limited parking, it is recommended that all participants bring their bikes to T-1 on Friday and take the shuttle bus to the reservoir Saturday morning. This also allows a preview of the bike course. (As an alternative, please see the bike transportation service that is available under “Bike Transport to Lake� on page 26). BUS TRANSPORT TO THE LAKE: Buses are available to transport participants and/or guests who have a pre-purchased bus pass to Gull Point Boat Ramp at Wickiup Reservoir.

Parking officials will be onsite to assist you in parking. VERY IMPORTANT!! Do not park on the either side of FS Rd 4260 or within the campgrounds just to the north of the transition zone. You will be asked to move your vehicle immediately or you will be ticketed if your vehicle is left unattended. Please utilize the parking area permitted to the race by the US Forest Service. Maintaining the permit for this event will depend on your cooperation with these regulations.

This is for the athletes’ safety and enjoyment. There are few bike lanes and very few places to pull over and cheer. So, following the bikes only leads to a congested and more dangerous ride for the participants.

This will help insure that athletes on either side of you do not mistakenly pick up your belongings with theirs. After making the transition, runners exit the transition area, running over the second set of timing mats, and follow markings taking them to the Sunriver bike path for the 10K run. TEAMS: Cyclist must rack their bike and make the conversion by touching the fingertips of their teammate within the designated Team tag location beyond the bike racks. Team runners must check in at the designated tent at T-2 prior to starting their run leg. The finishing cyclists for each team must turn in their Timing Chip at T-2. All personal equipment from the lake will be available for pickup at the conclusion of the race in a designated secured area (Muscle Milk Star Tent) adjacent to the bike/run transition. You must show your race number and wristband to the race official in order to pick up your gear.

Pacific Crest Weekend Sports Festival

We highly encourage all athletes to bring their bike to T-1 on Saturday between the hours of 12:00pm and 4:00pm. The bikes will be kept under lights and guarded by security officials until Sunday morning. Spectator vehicles are not permitted to follow the cyclists on the bike course. This is for the athletes’ safety and enjoyment. There are few bike lanes and very few places to pull over and cheer. So following the bikes only leads to a congested and more dangerous ride for the participants. DRIVING DIRECTIONS TO THE NORTH WICKIUP BOAT RAMP (T-1): From Sunriver follow Spring River Rd west for 0.6 miles and turn left (south) onto Century Dr. Continue on Century Dr for 3.05 miles, and turn right (west) continuing on Century Dr. Continue west for 18.25 miles to FS Rd 4260 and turn left onto FS Rd 4260 - this is the turnoff for Twin Lakes. Continue of FS Rd 4260 for 3.20 miles past twin Lakes Lodge to parking on FS Rd 4262.

Tri NorthWest Rules of Competition SWIM COURSE: Statement of Purpose

There is NOTHING more important than your Safety. The SWIM represents very real and unique dangers that are different from the BIKE or the RUN. The following rules and swim tips are provided to help ensure your safety, fairness of competition, and the enjoyment of the sport of triathlon. · · ·

·

·

No fins, paddles, artificial propulsion equipment or flotation devices are allowed. Swim goggles and faceplates may be worn. For the beginner triathlete, if you are a slower swimmer, move to the rear and to the outside of the swim group. This will result in a slightly longer swim distance, but will greatly reduce the chance of physical contact with another swimmer. Take notice where the swim course is directed and landmarks that may assist you during your swim prior to the start of the event. It is the athlete’s responsibility to sight the buoys and to stay on course, even if your vision is compromised by fogged goggles and sun in your eyes. f you need assistance, move to the inside of the swim course, raise and wave your hand, and yell for assistance. A water safety craft will be there immediately to help.

BIKE COURSE: Statement of Purpose

The safety of our participants on the Bike Course is our first priority. Next is to have a fair competition that allows you to produce a time that is reflective of your individual effort, without any artificial enhancements or outside assistance.

HANDLEBAR END PLUGS

It is a requirement that your bike is equipped with handlebar end plugs. [DQ #1] These can be obtained from the bike tech support team if you do not have them.

WHERE TO RIDE ON THE ROADWAY AND BICYCLE SEPARATION

· At all times AVOID the Centerline area of the roadway. That is the primary path of travel for the · ·

Race Officials, Emergency Vehicles (Police, Fire, Ambulance, etc.), and normal vehicular traffic. Except when passing, you must ride in single file with a minimum of three bike lengths of separation. (That equals 18 feet minimum separation.) [See Figure #1] Except when passing, you must ride to the OUTSIDE of the car lane, which is OUTSIDE of the fog line, and ON the shoulder of the road. In the absence of an adequate riding surface on the shoulder of the road, you must ride NEXT to the fog line, and always well away from the centerline. [See Figure #2]

PASSING ·

Overtaking riders must pass to the inside of the bike being passed (towards the centerline), but NEVER cross the Centerline [See Figure #2, Left lane riding - See Figure #3 and commentary under the heading: *** RIDING IN THE ON-COMING, LEFT-HAND LANE and NO passing in-between two bikes is allowed. [DQ #3] · Absolutely NO DRAFTING or BLOCKING of another bike or any other vehicle is allowed. · Cyclists may walk their bikes if necessary. · You are required to be body-marked and clearly display your Entrant Number. [DQ #10]


TRI NW Rules of Competition ·

·

·

51

Except for hand tools and individual parts (i.e.: a tire, a tube, a CO2 cartridge, etc.), No outside assistance may be received to repair any bicycle damage or failure. [DQ #11] Unofficial support crews or vehicles are prohibited from the racecourse during the race. (The presence of such people or vehicles will cause the disqualification [DQ #11] of the entered cyclist.) Ride defensively. Be aware of road conditions, vehicular traffic & other competitors.

BIKE COURSE DISQUALIFICATIONS

RULES

You CAN be disqualified for any of the following: 1. Littering either the bike or the run courses. (Water bottles, energy gel packets, inner tubes, CO2 cartridges, etc.) 2. No plugs in the handlebar ends. (Such safety violations are normally an automatic disqualification.) 3. Crossing the centerline. (Such safety violations are normally an automatic disqualification.) 4. Passing to the outside of another rider. (Such safety violations are normally an automatic disqualification.) 5. Unsporstmanlike Conduct — Any form of physical aggression or verbal abuse to anyone. (Race officials, another participant, spectators, local residents, etc.) 6. Failure to obey the police, course marshals and/or the event safety officials. 7. Failure to wear a bicycle helmet, or fasten the chinstrap of the helmet. ASTM or Snell approved helmets are Mandatory! Helmets must be securely fastened prior to mounting your bike. 8. Wearing any type hearing impairments (or anything else that impairs your hearing during the bike) is prohibited! 9. Accumulating three or more penalties in the same event. 10. Deliberately obscuring or discarding (including littering) your Entrant Number. (You are required to be body-marked and clearly display your Entrant Number.) 11. Accepting any outside assistance to repair your bicycle. (Someone else assisting and /or working on your bike during the race.)

PENALTIES THAT WILL BE ASSESSED AT THE DISCRETION OF OUR RACE OFFICIALS: BLOCKING

· Participants shall refrain from intentionally or accidentally blocking, charging*, obstructing, or ·

· ·

interfering with the forward progress of another participant. If you impede, or otherwise cause another rider to lose speed, or force a change in another rider’s line of travel, that is blocking. If you crowd the centerline, cutting off other riders from the legal path to pass you, that is blocking. Failure to keep to the OUTSIDE of the roadway and well away from the centerline (impeding normal civilian vehicular traffic in an oblivious or inattentive manner) is also blocking. Time Penalties will be assessed. “Charging” (intimidation) Aggressive Proximity Intimidation — (Including, but not limited to: physical contact or the threat of imminent collision) will be ruled as “unsportsmanlike conduct” and WILL result in disqualification. [DQ #4]

DRAFTING**

· The Drafting Zone (DZ) is the rectangular area surrounding every bicycle that begins at the leading edge of the front wheel of the bike in front of you. The DZ is three feet wide to both sides of the bike in front of you (That’s a total of six feet wide), and extends back three bike lengths


52

Pacific Crest Weekend Sports Festival

behind each bicycle (That equals 18 feet of separation from the trailing edge of the front bicycle’s rear wheel to the leading edge of the trailing bicycle’s front wheel). [See Figure #1] · You have ONLY 15 seconds in which to overtake and complete a pass, or you MUST drop back and move towards the OUTSIDE onto the shoulder of the road. After successfully completing a pass, you must move back OUTSIDE the car lane, OUTSIDE of the fog line, onto the shoulder of the road wherever possible, and always well away from the centerline. · If you have just been passed, you are now responsible for the 15-second exposure envelope in the DZ. After 15 seconds you MUST be back at least three bike lengths (and be out of the DZ), or you MUST have completed re-passing, or Time Penalties will be assessed. ** “Drafting Trains” are prohibited! Any multiple of bikes (two or more) using drafting techniques to increase their speed and reduce their course time will be assessed double time penalties! RIDING SIDE BY SIDE Riding “Side by Side” is prohibited! Over time you end up both blocking and drafting. Dual time penalties will be assessed to all riders involved for both blocking and drafting for this behavior during the race. This is a MAJOR safety violation on the racecourse! BIKE COURSE PRESCRIBED PENALTY SCHEDULE PER OFFENSE: First infraction ......................................2 minutes Second infraction ...............................Additional 2 minutes (total of 4 minutes) Drafting trains ......................................Double time penalties to ALL riders involved Riding side-by-side ..............................Dual time penalties to ALL riders involved (blocking penalty + drafting penalty) 3 infractions in the same event ...........Disqualification All major Safety violations ....................Disqualification Unsportsmanlike Conduct ...................Disqualification

TRI NW Rules of Competition

ONE LAST THOUGHT Athletes at any event are guests in the area where the competition is held. No one has the right to prevent the progress of normal vehicle traffic, to litter the roadway or to verbally abuse the local residents (even if they instigate a verbally abusive encounter. PLEASE be diplomats and goodwill ambassadors for this unique jewel of an event! The privilege to be granted a permit and to continue an event is a function of everyone involved. Remember to be courteous at all times, and show respect for the local residents and their property. And ENJOY the weekend!

RULES

RUN COURSE · Competitors may run or walk the run course. · Runners are not to cut the road tangents. Runners are to run on the left side of the road (opposing traffic) at all times unless the course is marked (or course marshals instruct you) to take you to the right side of the road. This situation arises when running on the left side of the road will take you around a blind corner creating a hazardous situation for both the runner and any approaching vehicle. · Unregistered pace runners are not allowed on the course. · Race numbers must be worn and be visible from the front. · Littering the course will result in disqualification. [DQ #6]
