Time: 9:00 am

What: 21K National Championships & 5K, 10K and kids sprint Fun Runs

The race begins in Bend's Old Mill District and heads up to Mt. Bachelor Village and beyond.  Here's the official race description from the XTERRA website, sounds fantastic:

Runners can expect a fast and fun course with lots of switchbacks on sandy, rocky, and dirt-strewn single and double track trails. There is a little more than 1,000 feet of elevation gain, and the first ½ -mile or so is on a paved urban trail on the east side of the river before crossing over the footbridge adjacent to Farewell Bend Park and onto west side dirt trails. From there the course follows the river trail upstream to a right turn that climbs past Mt. Bachelor Village and onto Haul Road. Once runners reach Entrada Lodge via Haul Road they'll travel in a counter-clockwise direction on the "jogging trail" and make their way towards Widgi Creek Golf Nationals Runnercourse on single and double track trails along the rim of the Deschutes River Canyon. Where the Forest Service road meets the golf course racers head down to Meadow Camp, connect to the river trail and run back alongside the Deschutes. After a few final tests of skill and endurance, competitors return down the same track they embarked on and into an XTERRA-style celebration at the finish line located smack dab in Center Plaza of the Old Mill District (between Anthony’s and the Gap).

If you're not a runner then head over to the Old Mill District for the end of race celebration and cheer on the athletes!
