Iron Horse Relay, Adventure Sport Festival coming to North Bend Sept. 9

North Bend hosts the city’s first Adventure Sport Festival and Iron Horse Relay Finish Line, 11 a.m. to 6 p.m. Sunday, Sept. 9.

North Bend Way will be closed to traffic and replaced with the finish line of the Iron Horse Relay, a race that starts at Lake Keechelus and ends on Main Street.

The downtown festival includes a two-track zip line, bungee jumping, inflatable obstacle course race, adventure sport exhibitors and vendors, live music and a beer garden benefit for the North Bend Downtown Foundation, Encompass and the Boxley Music Fund, and other events.

Anyone who comes to the festival and mention the city’s tagline,  “North Bend: Easy to reach….hard to leave”, can ride the zip line, Monkey Motion Bungee and race the obstacle course for free.
