Adventure Medics was founded by Matt Sabelman because he wanted to combine two passions in his life. Emergency medical services and a lifestyle filled with adventure. The medics employed by Adventure Medics share this life passion. They are rock climbers, mountain bikers, surfers, endurance runners, kayakers, and much more. They have been around the world providing medical services in all sorts of settings from the frigid cold of the Alaska tundra to sweltering jungles in Costa Rica. We strive for excellent patient care and continuously perfect our skills through training and experience.
Spectator viewing and Parking
The Deschutes Dash is a great course for spectators to watch the swim, run and the finish. We’ve created a special spectator map for your family and friends to find the best places to watch you along the course.
Parking: NO Parking is allowed in the Old Mill District’s shops area or along Columbia Avenue. All athletes must park in the designated event parking area adjacent to the Les Schwab Amphitheater and at Riverbend Park (Shevlin Hixon Drive). Athletes will be towed at their own expense if cars have to be moved!
