Race Preview: 2018 Crater Lake Rim Runs

Don’t miss your chance to run at one of the most beautiful National Parks in Oregon. The 42nd Annual Crater Lake Rim Runs and Marathon is just around the corner and filling fast! This event includes 3 distances: 6.7 miles, 13 miles, and a marathon. Only the 6.7 mile distance is open to walkers. All courses run along the rim of Crater Lake, so the views will be amazing. The course will be challenging with the altitude ranging from 5,980 ft. to 7,850 ft. Registration is limited to just 500 participants total. (As of July 10, there were only 76 place left!)

The courses are on paved roads except for the last 4 miles of the marathon, which is on dirt/pumice cinders. All courses include long grades with elevation loss/gains nearing 1,000 feet over 5 miles. All distances also have various time limits, so be sure to check the website to be sure you can meet the cut-off times.

All finishers will receive a medal and shirt. An awards ceremony will be held afterwards with overall and age group award being given out.
