Arrive late morning and head to our B&B for a welcome lunch. After eating, we’ll unpack and get settled before eventually heading out for a relaxed riverside, waterfall-laden run. A big dinner and plenty of drinks will follow.
Wake up to coffee, a relaxed breakfast and a beautiful sunrise. We’ll take a scenic drive towards our trail head, where we’ll begin an alpine trail run that weaves through fire-stricken trees, old-growth forest, fields of wildflowers and climbs towards a glacial lake. Afterwards, enjoy a big picnic lunch and a soak in a river of snow melt before journeying back to town for a brewery visit (and plenty of sampling!). Another big dinner and an evening relaxing around the fire pit caps off a great day!
Kick off the day with coffee, breakfast and a (somewhat) early start - today is the big run! After a scenic drive and trail orientation, we’ll begin a point-to-point long run on one of the most famous, magical trails in the country; old-growth forest, crashing waterfalls, turquoise pools and a rushing river. Lunch awaits at the end, along with a cold water soak. That evening you will be free to grab dinner and explore Bend on your own (or with others!) - our B&B is walking distance to many great options. Afterward, reconvene at our hot tub to wrap up the day.
Legs a bit tired from the long run? Today’s run offers the option of a challenging climb or a comfortable cruise, both with unforgettable views and a high desert landscape unlike anything else we’ve seen. You can choose to run or hike, depending upon how you feel – we’re in no rush! Another big picnic spread awaits, which we’ll enjoy before a leisurely afternoon float down the Deschutes River and the chance to kick back at a local brewery for our final dinner. We’ll do our best to make the minutes stretch; you won’t be ready to leave!
Today's run is early and optional, but you won't want to miss it. We'll head to a local trail that is lined with stunning waterfalls - the out/back set up caters to both those with fresh legs and those who just want a scenic stroll. A big breakfast awaits your return. Eventually it will be time to pack up, say our goodbyes and depart for the airport.

You will need to arrive in Bend by 1:00 pm on the first day and depart no earlier than 1:00 pm on the final day. You can fly directly to Bend/Redmond, or use a shuttle or rental car to connect from Eugene or Portland (great if you're planning to extend your vacation!). Suggestions and guidance will be provided once the group is set.
Please note that travel insurance is strongly recommended. Although we hope you never need it, we've seen enough to know that it can be a lifesaver in the event of a medical emergency, flight delays that cause you to miss the start of the trip, lost baggage or cancellation on your part (broke your leg two weeks before departure? Insurance could cover the entire cost of your trip!).
You can find those here.
