2018: NEw courses, and a NEW Skout Backcountry Finish Party!
We are still starting and finishing next to iconic Drake Park in Gorgeous downtown Bend, but the newly designed full and half marathon distances will take advantage of a brand new paved trail through the Deschutes National Forest (paralleling the Cascade Lakes Highway). Also, our on course nutrition provider, Skout Backcountry, will be hosting a bigger, better finish party that will include more local, regional, and national vendors, music, activities, and more. We encourage the whole family, and the entire community, to come enjoy the festivities. For more info, click here. See you in Bend, OR April 22nd, 2018!
