Choose a Course:

  • Subaru Long Course: 16km paddle, 55km bike, 20km run


Design your own route: We suggest finding a park with access to water, trails, and/or quiet roads.


Course Rules

  • Courses/Timing must be run continuously from the start of the paddle to the end of the run. Time cannot be stopped for transitioning from one discipline to the next, or for breaks along the course.
  • Each discipline must have a net even, or positive elevation change. i.e. no net downhill runs, or bikes and no down-river only paddles (paddling downriver, then back upstream is okay).
  • 50% of bike and run courses need to be on gravel roads, or trails


Categories/Age Groups recognized for prizing; 1st, 2nd & 3rd for each age group, male & female. In order to maintain physical distancing, the BPMRvv is for soloists only. Age as of Aug. 31, 2020.

  • Suntrail Course: 16-19, 20-29, 30-39, 40-49, 50-59, 60-69, 70+

Prizing. As with the live version of BPMR, we receive tremendous support from our sponsors and they've generously donated a fantastic collection of prizes for the virtual event.
