Pole, Pedal, Paddle: Sweat, Tears, & Gears!

If there’s one event that describes Central Oregon, it’s the Pole, Pedal, Paddle! Over 2000 participants competed in the 46th annual PPP as individuals, in pairs, or as a team. The race begins at Mt. Bachelor with Alpine & Nordic skiing, heads toward Bend with a 22-mile bike ride, and finishes in the Old Mill District with a 5-mile run, 1.5-mile kayak, and half mile sprint. The SELCO Pole Pedal Paddle is the largest annual fundraiser for Mt. Bachelor Sports Education Foundation (MBSEF) and provides life-changing experiences and programs to over 800 athletes annually.

Kendall Central Oregon is honored to sponsor & compete in this event, this year with five teams made up of customers & staff. Congratulations to our teams who all had smiles on their faces while competing.
