2019 Registration is Open!

Bend Ale Run

This breathtaking half marathon course is brand new to Central Oregon.  Racers start on NW Crossing Road just north of Summit High School and head west into the new Tree Farm housing development.  After a short section of gravel runners will get to experience what brand new asphalt feels like under foot as they follow the black ribbon of new roadways through this very scenic section of the course.  Sweeping views of the Cascade Mountain Range allow you to see Mt. Hood, Mt. Jefferson, Three Fingered Jack, North, Middle, and South Sisters, and finally Mt. Bachelor.

Bend Ale Run & Bend Ale Festival in partnership with the Bend Ale Trail
