Due to the ongoing uncertainty surrounding the COVID-19 pandemic, and with the best interest of our participants and volunteers in mind, we have decided to shift the 2020 Tour des Chutes to a virtual event. While this was not an easy decision to make, we feel it is the best choice in order to carry on our mission: funding programs that support children and adults with cancer in Central Oregon.
We are excited to continue this important work, and hope you will join us!
How it works
To celebrate our 16th annual event, we plan to share 16 daily messages of inspiration and support beginning on June 26th, and culminating with an invitation for all registered participants to ride or run on Saturday, July 11, 2020.
When participants register, they will pledge the number of miles they plan to ride, run, or walk on July 11. Our goal is to surpass the total number of miles from 2019, which was just over 64,000! All registered participants will be invited to read and interact with our inspirational blog posts and stories, and share their own inspiration over this 16 day celebration.
Tour des Chutes is known for great on course support, and a fantastic after party. The virtual ride/run/walk will be different, and we have changed our registration fee to $25 for adults, and $15 for youth (15 and younger). All registered participants will:
- Receive a coupon book with discounts from local businesses – adults and youth will receive separate coupon books
- See their pledged mileage add up to help reach our community goal
- Contribute to important community programs that truly make a difference in people’s lives

As a virtual event, and in order to maintain the safest experience for all participants, we will not be providing any specific route information or start times for group activities. It is important that every participant follows local rules of the road.
The traditional Tour des Chutes features road cycling routes of 100, 75, 50, 25, and 7 miles, a 30+ mile gravel route, and a 5K run/walk. You can ride/run/walk whatever distance you want for our virtual event!
Where to Connect
We will have a special landing page up soon where you can see our community goal, and interact with new and inspiring blog posts. Stay tuned!
