The Rogue Run is a point to point race run on paved pathways along the scenic Bear Creek Greenway. The marathon course goes from Emigrant Lake to the Jackson County Expo. The route is a gradual downhill, so it should be a fast course. There are 11 aid stations along the marathon route and the website warns of the “Table of Temptation” somewhere along the route. I’m not sure what that is, but apparently it isn’t your traditional aid station.
The Providence Rogue Run offers prize money for the top 3 overall male and female runners in both the marathon and half marathon. There are also age group awards in 5 year increments.
There will be changing facilities at the finish area, so that you can stick around for the family-friendly Southern Oregon Harvest and Brewfest. Enjoy live music, food vendors, a chili cook-off, grape stomping, and the beer garden.
Since this is a point to point race, there will be buses taking racers to the start line from the finish area at Jackson County Expo. See website for shuttle bus details.
Please note: strollers are not allowed on the race course and there will be no day of race registration.
