open streets final

FootZone is excited to take part in a vision of Bend in which community members are encouraged to use their feet as transportation! We hope you’ll join us in the FootZone-sponsored Bend Open Streets Skedaddle, an untimed 1.8 mile fun run/walk that takes participants around the Open Streets course while they answer trivia questions and gather raffle tickets for great FootZone prizes!


Registration: Register online here.


Packet pickup: You’ll pick up your tee, swag, and bib number at packet pickup on Friday, 9/15 from 4-6pm at FootZone, 842 NW Wall St., Bend, 97703.


Tees: Thanks to Bend Open Streets and FootZone for sponsoring FREE tees for Bend Open Streets Skedaddle participants!  You MUST register on or before 8/27 to guarantee your t-shirt size.  Participants who register after 8/27 will still receive a tee, but we cannot guarantee that we will have your preferred size.

Update: Our t-shirt order was submitted as of 9/7.  Anyone who registered before 9/7 will receive a tee.  We generously estimated how many tees we would need in total, and will likely have enough to cover all participants; however we cannot guarantee that participants who registered after 9/7 will receive a tee.


Location and start time: The Bend Open Streets Skedaddle will start by the CET Hub at the corner of NE 3rd St. and NE Hawthorne Ave. (the northwest corner of the Ace Hardware parking lot) at 12:00PM. Brooks Running will be there with fresh running shoes for you to demo, so if you’d like to audition a fresh pair of kicks, we recommend you arrive between 11:30AM and 11:45AM.


Parking:  We encourage participants to walk, run, bike, carpool, or use other alternative transportation to reach the start line!


The Bend Open Streets Skedaddle: Participants are welcome to run or walk throughout this untimed, 1.8 mile event. The run/walk will proceed in a clockwise direction around the Open Streets course. Participants may be required to wait at some intersections until given the go-ahead by course marshals.  This is not a race – don’t risk your safety!  We encourage you to take in the sights, enjoy your fellow walkers and runners, and take part in our trivia contest for fun FootZone prizes, including a pair of Brooks Running shoes!

Trivia Contest and Raffle: Participants who answer trivia questions at each of the marked aid stations along the course will receive a special prize from FootZone and will be entered into a raffle for a free pair of shoes from FootZone and Brooks Running!  Meet back at the FootZone tent by 1:30pm with your trivia questions answered, and be ready for an announcement of our raffle winners at 2:00pm!
