Reel in the Details
Why Run the Salmon Run?
First and foremost, because it benefits the Environmental Center, who believe that changing how we live, work, play and learn is essential to securing that healthy future, for people and the planet. In addition, most take on the Salmon Run because it is one of the first half marathon races of the calendar year in the NorthWest. More so, it is a hallmark race in the region, celebrating its 30th year. Salmon Run is recognized for its beautiful course along the spectacular Deschutes River
The Salmon Run is an excellent opportunity to set your base for your future race goals and endeavors.
The half-marathon, 10k & 5k courses are a mix of trails and paved paths. All races will start at the Bend National Guard Armory in Bend’s Old Mill District and travel along the river (like the salmon do!)
