Race Preview: 2017 Haulin Aspen Half-As, Half and Full Marathon (Bend)

Ever run a full marathon? Great! Ever run a full marathon exclusively on sweet, single-track trails? If so, that’s even better!! How about a full marathon, exclusively on sweet, single-track trails, that starts and ends at 5,500 feet above sea level, with over 2,000 feet of elevation change from start to finish?! Now in its 13 year, Haulin Aspen might just be your race!!

All 3 distances start and finish at Wanoga Sno-Park in Bend. All races take advantage of amazing single-track, double-track and forest service roads for their courses. The views are amazing as you run through massive pine trees and sneak peeks of the peaks of Central Oregon.
