Race Preview: 2015 Crater Lake Rim Runs [8/8/15]

Crater Lake Rim Runs

Want to challenge yourself and run in one of the most spectacular locations in the United States? Then the 39th Annual Crater Lake Rim Run is the race for you!  You can choose between runs of 6.7, 13.0 miles and The Marathon, or if you are a walker, the 6.7 mile walk. All courses are along the rim of Majestic Crater Lake and are at altitudes ranging from 5,980 to 7,850 feet above sea level. Be challenged by rugged mountains and breathtaking views.

Crater Lake Runner

Crater Lake National Park, situated in Southern Oregon on the crest of the Cascade Mountain range, is well-known for being home to the deepest lake in the United States and the seventh deepest in the world. The 1,943 foot deep lake lies inside a caldera, or volcanic basin, and was created when the 12,000 foot high Mount Mazama collapsed 7,700 year ago following a large eruption. Because the lake is filled almost entirely by snowfall, it is one of the clearest lakes in the world.

Crater Lake Lodge

Not only are the views breathtaking, but there is something for the non runners in your life as well.   An educational center, restaurants, shopping, camping, and of course the beautiful Crater Lake Lodge!  This would be a great event to make into a mini vacation and really enjoy all that Southern Oregon has to offer!
