Ride for Two Rivers @ FivePine Lodge
Jun 7 @ 9:00 am – 4:00 pm

Join us for the 4th Annual Ride for Two Rivers (Click here to register now)!  This benefit ride for the National Forest Foundation is scheduled for Saturday, June 7 and will take participants up the scenic McKenzie Pass.

This fully supported ride gives cyclists the opportunity to see an extremely unique, historic, part of Oregon – and the best part – the McKenzie Pass (Oregon Highway 242) is not yet open to vehicle traffic!  Ride one of the most scenic highways in Oregon without vehicles!

All riders will have an option to stay in Sisters and enjoy a Farm to Table style dinner at FivePine Lodge & Conference Center.  Enjoy Oregon Country Beef Hamburgers, Redmond Smokehouse Sausages, Eberhards Dairy products and Rainshadow Organics vegetables – all locally sourced – a chance to fuel up after a hard ride!

New this year are several events on Sunday, June 8.  Attendees can choose to also experience golf, skeet shooting, historical tours, whitewater rafting and more (an additional cost is involved for these activities).  Come for the Ride and stay for the Rendezvous of events in Sisters Country!

Sisters Happy Girl Half Marathon @ FivePine Campus
Nov 2 all-day

The Happy Girls Run Sisters is an express trail half marathon and 5K on-road run for women taking place in beautiful Sisters, Oregon. Bring your daughter, sister, aunt, mom or best friend and make it a fabulous Fall weekend in Sisters.  The half marathon is sold out, but there is still space available for the 5k.

The Happy Girls Run Sisters half marathon is the “trail” version of the extremely popular Happy Girls Run in Bend. The course takes racers through mainly single-track dirt trails, rolling hills and forest areas of the picturesque Peterson Ridge trail system, just outside of Sisters. This half marathon is an “express” race, meaning that participants enjoy a mostly downhill course and speedy running times. The 5K road race winds through scenic downtown Sisters on roads and paved trails, ending at the FivePine/Three Creeks Brewery campus.

Participants will enjoy a fabulous women’s expo and packet pickup at Five Pine Lodge and Spa, a party at Three Creeks Brewery, and the Sisters Stroll through downtown Sisters. The winners of both the half marathon and 5K races will receive a night’s stay at the beautiful Five Pine Lodge, a one-hour massage at Shibui Spa, and dinner for two at Three Creeks Brewery.
