Bend Marathon and Half
TheBend Marathoncourse takes in all that is amazing about the city, and the beauty that surrounds it. 2020 features many beautiful Bend City Parks, neighborhoods, and the new paved trail through the Deschutes National Forest (paralleling the Cascade Lakes Highway), and a finish area that will make the finish party even better.

As Bend grows and the race grows, we've been changing and improving the course each year to take advantage of new pathsor route around new developments to bring you the best flowing, most scenic course that we can design. When the course settles down and we can deliver a substantially similar route year over year, we will have it certified as a qualifier.Note: Courses subject to change at any time including race day.
