MARATHON - HALF MARATHON - HALF AS
Mountain Trail Running Has Never Been Better
No pavement here. Featuring a full all-trail marathon, a half marathon and a 6.5-mile course (dubbed the “Half As”), the Haulin’ Aspen features beautiful trails that wind through the Deschutes National Forest, showcasing some epic views. With varying terrain and elevation, the cool wooded pine setting provides a challenging and exciting experience. Make it a destination this summer – Bend and the Cascades welcome you!
Haulin’ Aspen participants will enjoy spectacular single track and forest service roads beginning and ending at Wanoga Sno-Park at an elevation of 5500 feet. The course weaves through the Deschutes National Forest offering stunning views and rolling terrain amongst the Ponderosa pines.
There will be several elevation changes, so come ready for challenging terrain. Marathoners should be prepared for a 700-foot vertical gain from mile 21.5 to mile 24. All courses have their ups and downs!
Trails can get dusty and are rocky in places, so you may consider sturdier shoes and gaiters. Temperatures can get very hot (cool in the early morning) during the summer, so it may be wise to carry your own water and energy products just to play it safe.
