La Pine Loop 2024

Warmer Temps, Faster River, more excitement

race overview

The La Pine Loop is Bend Racing’s (and Oregon’s) longest running adventure race.  This event has sold out the past few years, and is a perfect “season finale”. We’ve moved the race up by a few weeks this year to ensure warmer race temps and higher river flows. There were scheduled to be two course options this year:

“Classic” - which includes a beautiful river paddle (higher water than earlier years too!) This course will be eligible for USARA ranking points.

“Drierr” - NO LONGER AN OPTION!  (since almost everyone signed up for classic so we'll take that as a sign that people are excited for the river and warmer temps and want a true adventure!) 

Make a weekend out of it and enter the family race on the 7th!
