Personally, I love salmon, especially fresh off the BBQ. Even as I write this, I am compelled to pick up some soon, maybe I’ll run over and get some…maybe right after the race. This year’s event is once again put on by the great people at Lay It Out Events, who are responsible for a few popular races and events here in Central Oregon, including the ultra huge Balloons over Bend that takes place in July.
This year’s race will use the same courses as previous years and the 5K is once again a USATF sanctioned event. Because of the course, the half marathon is perfect for fast times and the scenery along the river is spectacular, especially as you make your way along the southern end of the courses down past Bill Healy bridge. Following the 3 main events, there will be the Little Fry Run for all the little runners out there.
