72.3 BEASTMAN SWIM ? 1.2mi - Participants will make two clockwise, diamond shaped loops in crystal clear Wickiup Reservoir, surrounded by the tranquil beauty of green forests and majestic mountains. Large buoys will mark the turn points. Kayakers will be positioned on the water to support the swimmers. Medical support will be present on the beach.
72.3 BEASTMAN 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. The bike course will be marked with large directional signage and there will be course marshals at key intersections to help direct you. Cyclists leave the transition zone and ride for approximately 3.15 miles and turn (left) onto FS Hwy 42. You will travel another 4.55 miles crossing the Deschutes River then turning right onto FS Hwy 46 (the Cascades Lakes Hwy). It?s now another 32.8 miles before making your next turn (right) onto FS Hwy 45. Within this section there will be long stretches of flat to gently rolling hills followed by three challenging climbs. It culminates 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 the 51.9-mile mark it is relatively flat the final 4.4 miles. ELEVATIONS: The first climb begins just past Elk Lake resort, approximately 27 miles into the bike. Just north of Elk Lake you will begin to climb for approximately 650 ft, passing Devils Lake before reaching a flat spot, then climb again to Todd Lake (elev. 6,150 ft). You will experience another flat spot, at about the 35-mile mark, before the final climb to the entrance of Mt. Bachelor (6,500 ft, about 38 miles into the ride). You will then enjoy a 14 mile + downhill ride, the first 2.5 miles being steep with a sharp 90 degree turn onto FS Hwy 45 (*see caution note below).
72.3 BEASTMAN RUN ? 13.1mi - A mostly flat loop course on widely paved bike paths that traverse through and around this beautiful and scenic destination resort (two hills total with a minimal elevation gain).
