Pilot Butte Challenge
The Pilot Butte Challenge (PBC) is a mile-long run/walk to the summit of Pilot Butte. Running since 1998, this challenge has become a Bend tradition, popular among all age groups.
Participants can sprint, walk or casually hike - but most importantly, it's an opportunity to challenge themselves. After reaching the summit, you'll be rewarded with stunning 360-degree views of the Cascade Mountains, Deschutes River, and the city of Bend.
