One of Bend’s oldest organized races and a locals’ favorite!
Kick off the 2017 race season with a true Bend tradition. One of the first half marathons of the year in the Northwest, it has long been central to the local racing scene. Because of its early-season timing, it is also an important race for runners looking to build a base for future half-marathons.
