Race Preview: 2015 Haulin’ Aspen Full, Half & Half-As Trail Marathon (Bend)

Haulin' Aspen Trail Runs

Oregon offers a lot of different scenery with plenty of trails through all of them. Lay It Out Events in Bend gives you the opportunity to run through beautiful Ponderosa pine forests (which smell of butterscotch!) with breathtaking mountain views. At the Haulin' Aspen trail run you can choose between the full, half and half-as (6.55mi) marathon, and athletes of all speeds are welcome.

The race starts and ends at the Wanoga Sno-Park on Cascade Lakes Scenic Byway between Bend and the Mt Bachelor ski area. The course takes runners on single track, double track trails, and forest service roads. No matter the distance you choose, you can expect rolling hills, some steeper than others. Runners will be well supported with eight aid stations on the marathon course, four on the half course, and two on the half-as. After the run, enjoy a craft beer (for those of legal drinking age) and stick around for the awards ceremony.
