Race Preview: Canyon Rumble Frozen Half

Prepare to brave the elements and maybe get just a little muddy at this year's Canyon Rumble Frozen Half.  Also including a 5k and 10k, the half marathon route follows an out and back course through part of  Madras and the scenic high desert landscape of Willow Canyon. A gradual downhill on the out brings you out of town, while the slightly uphill return brings you back to the start in town for the post race fun.

Along the way you’ll get views of high volcanic cliffs and meandering Willow Creek (previous runners have called this race one of the most scenic in central Oregon), punctuated by single track and trail portions with a few foot bridges to keep things interesting.

As with all trail running, there may be portions of tricky navigation so be sure to keep careful tabs on your footing.  This time of year in Madras also means weather could be any number of things from  chilly (daytime highs average around 48 degrees) to snow, ice, or rain so come prepared with cozy, waterproof layers and your best trail shoes.
