Race Preview: 2017 Dirty Half (Bend)

If you’re looking to set a half marathon PR…this isn’t the race for you! FootZone’s Dirty Half in Bend, OR features roughly 1,000 ft of elevation gain through ponderosa forests on a beautiful single track course.

This event is capped at 500 runners and the top 3 male and female (as well as overall masters) will receive awards but even more awesome is that EVERYONE gets a Hydro Flask tumbler at the finish line! Once your heart rate comes back down, you can fill that puppy up at the beer garden with some Deschutes Brewery Down and Dirty Ale.
